According to MTX they need 1.25 cubic ft per sub sealed and 2 cubic feet vented. Most pre-fab boxes will work for those subs.

Mtx mxa 6001 amp cant get it to produce good bass using mtx 5500 subs running a 2ohm load


You seem to have everything in spec. check your crossover points and your speaker wiring. subs may be playing out of phase.
A huge factor is subwoofer enclosure ...if the enclosure is not in spec with sub requirements the subs will not peform great.

What size should i make the enlcloser


If looking for LOUD, ported enclosure is the way to go.

If looking for accuracy, build sealed. You will need approx 2 cu ft
To tune this 2 cuft box around 50Hz, you need (1) 4" round port 5" long.

MTX recommends an enclosure of 2cuFt ea. You will only be able to use 1 subwoofer in this application.

Even a sealed enclosure is recommended 1.25cuFt.

You can shove 2 in the vented enclosure, but you may not be happy with the outcome

Need to know how to wire my system ...I have the infinity reference series 611a I was told it was a mono block but it has two channels on the exterrior...also I have two 12 inch MTX thunder dual voice coil...


it all depends on what kind of box the mtx subs are in as far as wiring the subs. The best way would be take the speaker wire from both sub boxes and run the positive into the right positive then the negative into the left negative. and run 8 gauge wiring kit to the amp because 10 might be to small and 4 is to big 8 gauge is perfect for this amp.

Can you help with my wiring?


The more amp you are pushing the better. Better too much amp then not enough. How many watts per speaker? less then the amp I hope. When you need decibles the more air you push the louder it will be. Enclose in a MDFB enclosure or plexiglass and feed towards each other and port the box to the sides. This will cause some annoyance.

I need an enclosure for a power acoustik mofo 12''.


Hello miles_jamike,

Power Acoustik recommends a 1.25 CuFt sealed and 2.0 CuFt ported enclosure for the P1, P2 and P3 subs. The PSQ needs 1.25 sealed and 1.75 ported. In physical size, this translates into about 16X12X14 for sealed and about 30X42X15 ported.

You should try to stay pretty close to the recommended enclosure volume for best performance. A good volume calculator is located here on the12V.com website. Just enter the proposed width, height, depth, and material thickness and click the "=" to get the CuFt.

If you are building (or having built) a custom enclosure for a specific location in your vehicle, all you need to do is stay very close to the volume recommended.

If you intend to purchase a generic enclosure, the Goldwood shown here at Parts Express is an exact fit. Atrend also makes good generic enclosures, their model 12SAL in a sealed box with 1.20 CuFt and the 12LSV ported with 2.50 CuFt would be good choices.

Crutchfield has both generic and custom enclosures made by JL, MTX, QLogic, and Bass Slammer. Crutchfield has excellent support. They will respond promptly and positively to your phone or email inquires. If you have never ordered from them, you can use a "friend referral code", such as mine, which is: p7sdj-hrx8q-9800g, and on any order of $200 or more, you receive a $20 discount. And I get a $20 credit on a future order. Also, many orders qualify for free shipping.

Hope this helps.

Have kenwood mono amp 4,2,1 ohm capabilitie. What is the best sub to run. The amp is 1600 watts, howmany ohms and 1 or 2 voice coils.


Hello pelikant75,

The best answer depends on your budget for the sub(s) and exactly what kind of sound you are looking to get. Your amps RMS output at 4 ohms is 200 watts and at 2 ohms, it's 400 watts. I could not find that it was 1 ohm stable.

If you are looking for the absolute best bang for your buck, I would highly recommend a pair of entry level MTX 10" subs, model 4501-04, currently priced by Crutchfield at $49.99. And if you buy a pair, they throw in a free Bass Slammer BS210S sealed enclosure. The MTX's power range is 112.5 to 225 watts each, right in there with your amps output. 2 of them in parallel give you a 2 ohm load, just right for your amps best power. And they sound great. You simply can't find a better deal for $100 bucks!

If you want a little better SQ, a pair of Rockford-Fosgate P1S410's should be considered. Again, going to Crutchfield, they currently have this one "BOGO" (buy one get one) for $99.99. You will have to provide your own box, though, no free one with these.

Finally, if you want the best SQ, and your budget allows, consider a set of Alpine SWR-1022D's for $179.99 each. These have dual 2 ohm voice coils, allowing you to series the coils and parallel the subs, resulting in a 2 ohm load to you amp just like the MTX's and RF's recommended above. You will probably want a somewhat larger enclosure for the Alpines as well as a fatter wallet. Your amp is right at the lower end for powering them, so they probably will not be as loud. But they will sound good.

One thing we haven't discussed is the box. The enclosure is just as important, perhaps even more important than the sub(s). More accurate bass is generally produced from a sealed enclosure. A ported enclosure will be louder, but at the expense of sound quality. And whether it's sealed or ported, the enclosure needs to have enough internal volume for the particular sub you are planning to use. A sealed box in the range of .75 to 1 cu/ft will be OK for any of the recommended subs. Add about 15-20% more volume for a ported box and keep in mind that the port needs to be specifically sized for the frequency for which it is tuned.

Hope this helps.

Netgear wpn824 router problem


Sounds like you[ve already found the solution. The sledgehammer combined with going out to buy a new router (anything but Netgear) should do the trick. It's much better than spending countless hours on the phone with a tech from India who doesn't know shit and only asks questions that they are reading from a transcript. Their customer service is shit and so are their products.
