What is the cubic feet needed to build box for audioban 12


You can use this speaker in either a ported or sealed box. A sealed box would be smaller, (sealed box volume: 0.5 to 1.25 cubic feet) the larger the box the more base you will get. With a sealed box your amp has to work double hard as it would in a ported box ( 1.3 to 3.2 cubic feet) You will get close to double the volume in a ported box. Tuning a ported box with the size and length of the port will determine the hertz the speaker will play at.

How many cubic feet does this sub take in a vented box


for a single one in a sealed box should be looking at 5 Cuft not prted, it varies on the shape of the box, wedge, rectangle, etc and if its ported, 5 cubic feet is generalised in a rectangle box thats sealed, heres a link, it is a little difficult but once you work it out you can calculate the correct cubic feet for any sub in any shpaed box, check it out.

Box recomendations


It depends on the size of the subs- 8z 10z 12z 15z? whether or not you port the box is up to you- a ported box is generally louder than a sealed box -as you are coupling and tuning the sound from the rear of the driver with the sound generated from the front of the sub- but the box is also generally larger as well.Then aside from your preference of ported/sealed you have to account for the recommendations of the manufacturer as to whether the sub/speakers are meant to be placed in a ported or sealed enclosure. Most 10 inch subs do well in a box that yields .75 cubic feet to1.0 cubic feet.most 12z do well in 1.0 cu feet to 1.5 subic feet and 15z do well in 1.5 to 2.5 cubic feet. I have a set of 15z that require 4.25 cubic feet per sub-so its important to look into the manufacturers recommendations. The easiest box to make would be a sealed enclosure-and the sound quality generally yields a tighter more accurate bass sound along with increased power handling capability- try going to rockford fosgate .com and look into the woofer box wizard its a program that calculates air space for whatever size box you have room for-hope that helps you-good luck

Box dimensions for 15 in cerwin vega


do you want the box ported or unported (holes or no holes) if you don't got a lot of room than you dont want a ported box. keep in mind the box has to have the correct amount of cubic air space or you could seize your sub... if you're building it make sure you use OSB board (oriented strand board) or MDF board(medium density fiber) your sub needs .7cubic feet of air space in an unported box

Trying to find out wat the watts are on a jlw3 12 and a jlw0 12


The JL 12W0 needs 125 watts RMS. Sealed box it needs 1.5 cubic feet. Ported it needs 2.5 cubic feet.
The JL 12W3 needs 300 watts RMS. Sealed box it needs 1.25 cubic feet. Ported it needs 1.75 cubic feet. I wouldn't suggest running these subs together.

What is the sealed and ported box volumes for the audiobahn dub 200 subs?


If you can access the inside of the sub box by removing the speaker, you may be able to measure the 3 dimension of each side of the enclosure.  1 cubic foot is 12x12x12 inches cubed.  That is 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot.  If you measure the inside dimensions of one of the enclosure sides as 10x14x8 inches, then that is 1120.  1120 divided by 1728 is 0.648 cubic feet.  Alternatively, you could estimate the volumes of each side of the box by measure the outside, figuring out where the box divider board is, subtracting the width of the boards used to make and then calculate.  Otherwise, I do not know the enclosure that that sub comes in.  Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.

Dimension please for enclosure 12w3v2-d2


Typically you use one cubic foot per sub, so a 2 cubic foot box will work fine. To build a basic one, just a rectangular box, using 3/4" MDF (excellent material for a box), cut pieces this way:

2 - 25.5" x 13.5"
2 - 25.5" x 12"
2 - 12" x 12"

This will give you an interior volume of exactly 2 cubic feet. Cut your sub holes out of one of the 25.5" x 13.5" pieces.
