### Calculating cubic ft

In order to calculate cubic feet you must multiply the LxWxH (where L=length, W=width and H=height or depth) making sure all three numbers are in feet. For example: a box 3' long by 2' wide by 1.5' high would contain 9 cubic feet of space. (3x2x1.5). If one or more of the measurements is in inches then you must convert it to feet or the others to inches. If all three measurements are in inches multiply them and then divide your answer by 1728 to give cubic feet because their are 1728 cubic inches in a cubic foot. (12x12x12). For example the same problem above in inches would be: 36x24x18=15,552cubic inches. Divide 15,552 by 1728 = 9 cubic feet

### 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.

### For da orion 2500d, what would be the difference between 10'', 12'', & 15'' orion hcaa subs besides a matter of price and inches? I have two of the orion 2500d amps and am ready for the subs. I would...

I honestly would go with 2 12 inch dual 2 ohm subs and wire them one per amp. That will give you a 1 ohm load to each amp and will give the HCCA's 2500 rms per sub... It will be stupid loud... 10s hit tighter than 12's usually and 12's tighter than 15's but u will get more air movement out of a 15 than the 12's and 10s... but... 2 10's require say a 4 cubic foot box to perform well... 2 12's require a 5 cubic foot box to perform well and 2 15's require about 7 to 10 cubic foot to perform to their fullest... no matter what if you put a sub in a box that's too small it will not perform or sound like what you want it to... go 2 12's and like a 5.50 cubic foot box or a 6 cubic foot box and you will love it...

### 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

### I have 2 kicker l7 12 dual voice coil subs.. i just friend a hifonics 1600w amp and am wondering if a kx 1200.1 kicker amp will be enough to power them they are 750w rms a piece .. can these be run at 1...

it all depends on the impendance of your subs if u have duel 4ohm or duel 2ohm, 2 duel 4ohm speakers can be wired at 1ohm to the amp, and with a kx1200.1 that would be pushin 2400 peak and 1200rms
if ya have 2 duel 2ohm speaker than you can only wire them to 2ohm and would be pushing 1200 peak and 600 rms with the kx1200, so if you have the duel 4ohm i would go with the kx1200.1 and if u have the duel 2ohm i would go with the hifoncs

### 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.
