Hello joseph_delac,

MA Audio's website has the recommended box volume and port size online here. A ported enclosure needs 3.0 CuFt of internal volume and the port should be 48 sq/in and 14.5" in length. A 4X12" rectangular port would give you the recommended 48 sq/in. Using 3/4" MDF, a box 16X18X25 has an internal volume of 3.25 CuFt allowing .25 CuFt for the sub and port displacement.

Hope this helps.

    Hello again joseph_delac,



    Well, I just tried MA's website again and it's either down or no longer in operation. I tried some retail sites to see if their was any information on MA. www.crutchfield.com only sells one MA sub, a 10". And SonicElectronix sells the HK12X2 but they don't have a download feature for the manual like Crutchfield. Their "features and specs" information does show the ported box volume, but not the port size.

Trying to put ported reccomended subs in sealed box.


Well, 1.6 cubic foot for a 15 is not nearly enough. A ported box for 1 15 should be in atleast 3 cubes by itself. I suggest building a new box yourself or getting someone else to do it for you. If factory specs on those subs is no larger than 3 cubes per sub then I'd get the box built to 3 cubes per sub after all displacement and tune it in the upper 30's range. Putting big subs like that in a small sealed enclosure can and will damage a sub. and if you try to port an enclosure that is too small to begin with that will also hurt the woofer. Do it right or learn the hard way.

Need specs to build box for my truck


I do design sub enclosures for a living and I give free specs on basic setups, so you are in luck. As a starting point I'll start by saying that fitting them under the seat may not work that well. Each sub will need about .75 cu.ft. sealed and probably double or triple that for a good ported box. I can get more specific If you e-mail me (dynami28@charter.net) the specs on those subs. Specifically I will need the Theile Small parameters ( these numbers-VAS, QES, QMS, FS, etc,) and then I can give you a better idea of where they will fit. If they do go under the seat they will probably not produce really low bass because smaller boxes generally produce higher bass tones. This decision should be based on what you listen too and what you expect them to sound like. They most likely will be more thump than boom and some people like that, so figure that out as well and let me know. Also my father has the same truck and there is a lot of room under the back seat. You can also gain some extra space by using fiberglass to conform the enclosure to the contour of the truck.

What type of enclosure for audio bahn aw1000x


I used to be an Audiobahn dealer and can help you with the box. However I can't find specs on that model in my records or on Audiobahn's website. If you email me (dynami28@charter.net) the Theile Small parameters for the subs I can give you more exact specs. The box should be ported (Audiobahn doesn't recomend a sealded box) with about 2.5 cubic feet, made of 3/4" MDF. Here are some generic specs that should go well with that particular sub.

Air Space (Cu. Ft.) 2.4

Port Size (Inches) 4 x 6.25

Tune Freq. (Hz) 39

Need to build a ported sub box for my alpine swr-1222d subs x 2


Try going to Alpine web site, I think they have box building program as well that you just input your sub models into and it gives you blueprints for various types of enclosures. I know Rockford has one and a comparative attachment to compare equipt specs. Or if you call Alpine headquarters you may be able to get info that way, I once sweet talked a rep @ a demo vehicle I met doing some car shows that turned me on to a senior rep @ Korbon Trading the owners of Rockford Fosgate and they gave me specs for a 5 stage band pass box for some competition subs that was more intricate and detailed than anyone before that could find me, Won me first place in spl. Matching your box specs to your subs is crucial and the best specs are often kept a secret for demo competition vehicles! So ask around with some competition guys or other top experts if your real serious about your boooom.

I need help


Put this in google -- ported box software

Now, you will need multiple specs for your subwoofers to figure out the correct box size and port diameters/length.

Also, other calculations like the resonant frequency of the vehicle you are putting these in and numerous other issues. Seriously, fixya.com is the wrong place to get this answered. Teams spends tens of thousands of dollars and years perfecting their vehicles to compete. Go to a good audio forum and ask this question there. You will receive ALOT better help and you can interact with some very knowledgeable people about your competition wishes. Good luck and have patience!!

Finding a good box for the sub


< I design sub enclosures for a living so you are in luck. > The one thing to remember is that generic sub boxes are just that - generic. Even if they have a fancy brand name, unless they are built for the sub you are using you will be making a guess as to how well it works. Don't get me wrong though it may work well in that band pass box, but just imagine how much better it could sound in a custom enclosure. Having said that you have the right idea, and bandpass enclosures can be power-full. If you send me (dynami28@charter.net)
the specs that came with the sub I can give you an idea of what kind of box you should get or, if you want to build your own, I can do the specs on that too. Personally I stay away from bandpass enclosures for one reason. When the subs distorts or gets pushed too hard you can't hear it happening. Since the sub is completely enclosed it's somewhat muffled or insulated so that distortion is hard to hear, which can blow up subs. A good ported enclosure would do well and basic plans should be on Lanzar's website, or available from myself. I do not recommend a sealed enclosure unless these subs will see light duty and you don't expect ground shaking bass. They can sound okay in a sealed box but most car audio enthusiasts like the ported boxes for their increased output and lower tones. Email me if you can't find the specs on those subs I might still have them on file. (Also the enclosure should be at least 3/4" thick MDF with bracing throughout.)
