Bandpass box is a quick way to get a nice bass sound. First I would need to know what type of vehicle this is being installed in to come up with the corre3ct dimensions for a custom box.

    Bandpass boxes are usually muddy because they are not made specifically for the woofer being installed. I need type of woofer with any specs you have to be able to design a correct enclosure. Plus the type of vehicle its being installed into as well.

SOURCE: bass sounds muddy and volume is minimum.

Hello mercedesman4,

Your setup sounds great. I had to settle for Blaupunkt in my Mercedes.

It sounds like the culprit is your enclosure. It's possible that by tweaking the settings, you could improve the sound somewhat, but having been used to the sound of a sealed enclosure, maybe not. Sealed enclosures tend to produce tighter, more accurate bass and have a flatter frequency response curve. They are also generally the enclosure of choice when looking for a SQ (sound quality) oriented setup.

Ported enclosures will produce louder bass than sealed enclosures, and maybe that's why some audio guys push them. They also allow the speaker to operate more efficiently, so you need less amp power for a given volume. Higher tuning on a ported box will get louder, but at the expense of sound quality. Lower tuning will still get louder than a sealed box, and the sound quality will be better than a box tuned higher, but still not as good as sealed. That's what I meant about tweaking the settings. You may see some improvement by setting the crossover lower, decreasing bass boost, or by turning the subsonic filter on/off. I'm no audiophile, but personally I've never been able to stand the sound of a ported enclosure, however it was tuned. Sealed just sounds better.

Hope this helps.

Need speaker box Measurements for a 10 inch 8 ohm kicker comp


Look in the manual that comes with your subwoofer. For most 10" subwoofers, you need to make sure there is at least 1" to 2" around the subwoofer for the front plate. And the figure out how you want it to sound for the depth of the box. Slimmer box equal higher bass, wider box equals deeper boom. You always want to account for the thickness of the wood. If it's thinner wood you won't have that deep of bass. If you have thicker wood it will give a richer sound. Mainly if you building a single box you need at least 12"X12"X12" would be just fine. It gives plenty of room for everything to fit and you can just fill it with foam to make the bass sound deeper.

Should I use a vented box or a non vented box for my ALpha PSW412


Well, First you need to figure out a few things. How much room you have is one main consideration, If you go with a vented (ported) enclosure or band pass (see below) than you will need more room than with a seal enclosure, If you really have no room you can mount them " Free Air" which is mounted on a board and fired into the back seats, the Truck acts as the enclosure.
Now the type of bass you want is another consideration. The best enclosure for maximum bass is a bandpass box. It is 2 subs facing each other with one side fully enclosed and the other side ported. This is best for deep powerful bass but the enclosure can be rather large. Vented boxes are second best (In my opinion) they give you deeper bass and more power than the sealed boxes. Sealed boxes give you less power from your sub and are a little flatter. Some say that the bass is more accurate and tighter , depending on the type of music you play. Rock you would want a tighter bass(sealed) and hip hop or techno style you would want a deep bass(ported). Lastly you have the free air which gives you the least amount of bass and is usually rather flat sounding. If you have the room go for the band pass box, if room is an issue than go with a sealed and specifically design box for you vehicle. Alot of places design boxes for almost every car out there. Just make sure that have a well designed box, It makes a world of difference, than an improper box.

How to mount a bandpass sub


usually you will get the best sound with the box mounted approximately 3" away from rear of trunk with speaker facing toward the rear of trunk if it is a single speaker enclosure you want to do the same just offset it to one side of the trunk corners always amplify sound however just so you know 10's are not really made for low bass they usually have more of a hard hitting pound instead of a low rumble usually 12's will give you the low bass better and it also depends on what kind of box a vented box would be best for low bass sealed box gives you tighter bass but you need more power ported is good for low bass but gets sloppy when loud and a bandpass is used for loud hard hitting bass

What to do


well i don't know your budget, but if that's not really and issue, right now at best buy, alpine type E, 10" subs, peak is 750w and rms is 250w, each is 129.99. Alpine type R, 10" subs, peak is 1500w and rms is 500w, each is 199.99. These are the best subs i found at best buy. You could sell your current subwoofers and purchase those, and you'd save space and still get the lows you want. Goodluck

alot of times its not just the amp that gives you better sounding bass.. A lot has a to do with a few other factors as well.. first off your subwoofer.. the bigger the subwoofer the deeper the bass. Some woofers exturde, or flex differently depending on the quality and structure of the woofer.. 2nd is gonna be the sub box. different size boxes will give your sub diff. depths of bass. ... general idea is the bigger the box deeper the bass. But if your woofer is not supplied enough power a big box is useless.   With that size amp your best bet is too run a single woofer. Probably a 10inch woofer would sound the best.. but it in.75cub inch. sealed box.. should sound great.

set the lp filter to about 100 to 125 (or lower if want seep boomy only) , put the bass eq no more than 75% but i would recommend no more than 50%, gain is to match the sound not to adjust power with so it is a user preference start all the way down and slowly go up till u hear distortion then turn it back down by about 10 - 15 %, phase shoild typically be at 0 degrees, subsonic depends on if you r using sealed or ported ported turn it all the way down then adjust as needed to get rid of the lower sounds you dont want (muddy sloppy sounding bass) if sealed turn it all the way up to at least 35 hz.

IMO 2 would be best. A good 10" woofer will give you good all round bass but wont rock your block off. The bigger your woofers the more low end base you will be able to produce so a 10" is a good balance between low end and thumpy bass for a full sounding system. The type of box you decide on encosing the woofers in will also affect your sounds. Consult your local car audio experts for more info. Good Luck
