Need some tips on building a subwoofer box.


Do some research on the model of subwoofer and find the recommended box size, subwoofers need the correct box size to work to its full potential, and size in meaning the volume of space inside the box so if you cant fit your box in your trunk cut it down to the size you need but make it bigger as much as you took of if you have more room say in night for eg.i hope the heaps otherwise there is so much online about sub enclosures.

WHAT SIZE AND TYPE BOX DO I USE FOR ONE PIONEER TS-W304C SUBWOOFER


You have a lot of choices for this. First, unless you are tuning the sub to a specific frequency you have options. You didn't specify the size of sub so it's difficult to say specifically, but if it's a 12 inch sub, you need about 1.5 to 2 cubic feet. Of course the performance of the sub depends on the music you listen to. If you listen to rock, pop, classical, or country, I recommend a sealed box. A sealed box gives you better control over your sub. The air acts as a cusion and decreases the return time of the cone to rest position. This gives you tighter bass. If you listen to rap or hip hop, I recommend a ported enclosure. This type of enclosure allows for more cone excursion, thus allowing the sub to recreate lower frequencies. Hope this helps.

What would be the ported enclosure airspace requirement for a dynex 10" sub?


For optimal performance there is really only one size for the box .Firstly, you get two different types of subwoofers, an open air, or closed air sub. If it is an open air sub ( hole with mesh in the center of the magnet) no ports are required, and the box should be sealed on the inside with silicone sealant. If it is a closed air sub ( no hole in the magnet) you need a 50mm port about 120mm long. Box size will be 11 inches x 11 inches x 11 inches. Hope this helps

I have found a PYLE POUNDER 8 inch speaker. I need to construct or purchase the correct enclosure for use as a car bass speaker or subwoofer. Need speaker and enclosure info.


making a sealed box would be the correct enclosure for that sub, http://cdn.cloudfiles.mosso.com/c128031/sc-image/7/1/4/3/7143ed32a19c9a357a99e344a440d7e8.jpg th that image has one way you can have it look like, the black plastic piece is a connector point that is drilled out then glued to the side or back of the box, the other way is up side down/ reversed http://www.billkatz.com/images/ces_pics/ces_subwoofers.jpg Any sealed enclosure will do, 8 inch are not that powerful so any enclosure.

I need to know the demensions for 10 inch subs


almost any 10 will use .75 cubic feet up to 1.25 cu ft. thats about the size of a milk crate give or take. a sealed box will give you the cleanest tightest bass. A ported box will be louder but also larger at the cost of decreased power handling ability and sound quality. If your subs are designed for small enclosures use a sealed box around .75 to 1.00 cu ft.
