ok so i got them in sealed box's rite now in my s10 about 1.25 per sub, and they pound pretty good, but im gunna be doing a blow through box in the future and was wondering what size box's the should be put in and what they should be tuned too, i want spl mainly but i guess i would like a bit of an sql system, i measured out the back (box) where i plan on putting the sub box and i can make a box about 5cuft (im only using about 1/4 of the truck box) lastly i am currently powering them (10inch cvr's) with 400rms off my a8002t and my electrical system is upgraded and when hooked up my multimeter to the power for the amp it read 14.??(bunch of different numbers)the lowest it went was like 13.8 i think....so i know the amp is putting out the 400 watts to each sub, but they are 300rms, in the sealed box's there taking the extra power great, but ive heard that subs in ported box's have less power handling...is this true...if so will the subs still take the 400watts without blowing..? thanks in advance...
ne one...someones gotta have these things ported and know how big the box should be and what it should be tuned too? looking to get loud, also can someone answer the question about the power handling when switching to ported? thanks...
today i went to a compition and i have 2 12" CVRs in a ported box... i hit 140.1 in spl... the guy said i woulda hit harder in db maybe about 147-8 but i didn't even know there was a difference... but ya i think its better then sealed...my bro inlaw entered his CVRs too in a sealed tho and he got 138.7... ... what are the demensions of your truck n i'll try to design you one man... i ain't no expert but i'll give it a shot..i maybe my own box and it got up there
the cvr manual i got says .8 cuft to 3.0cuft so i put them as big as i could to go behind my bench seat...and u guys dont have to convince me to go ported, if u read the first thing i said at the top, it says im giong to build a ported box once i get my new truck box and join the cab and the box together with an accordian boot, my question was how big should i have the box(s) and what should they be tuned too, the cvr manual i have says to port the box
#1-Compact(minimum)-1.25cuft+port(2"x10 1/2"x20") power handling only 150w
#2-SQ(maximum)-1.75cuft+port(2"x10 1/2"x20")power handling only 170w
now my question was how big should each box be, ive got exactly 5 cuft in the area where i want to put the subs in the truck box, and my 2nd question from original post is will they take the 400watts thats being pushed to each sub in the sealed box's when i change them over to ported...?
dustin are your friends cvr's 12's...b/c i have 10's and wouldnt that mean my box should be smaller or could i put them in the box u recommended and it would be fine...im also asking the size of ur friends subs cuz the 12's are 400rms so they would handle it, mine are 300rms so i was worried but if they will handle it then great...
ohh my bad i thought you had 12's, yes for 10's i'd go a little bit smaller on the box, around 1.5cf, tuned between 32-35hz, and i'd still think the cvr10 could take 400wrms, i'd just be carefull and make sure they weren't bottoming out at full volume.
ok thanx alot dustin...now one last question would it better for me to build a common chamber box with one port or to have a divider with two ports...rite now there is a divider in my seald box, i heard that its safer that way?
