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.

### A book box 17 x 13 x 8 inches is how many cubic feet?

First get the number of cubic inches by multiplying the three value provided.

17 x 13 x 8 = 1768 cubic inches

Then determine the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot:
12 x 12 x 12 = 1728 cubic inches

Determine the value in cubic feet by dividing the number of cubic inches in the box by the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot:

1768 divided by 1728 = 1.023148148148... cubic feet

### 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

### 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.
