I got a prefab Obcon 1.56ft^3 per chamber box and I think It sounded better when I filled the port tight with towels. It sounded a bit faster and less "all over the place". It didn't loose much sound, and for how loud I listen to it, it wouldnt make I difference I dont think.
Question 1: My recomendedations for sub enclosure volume are Sealed: .75-1.25 and Ported: 1.25-1.75. If my box is 1.56ft^3, and I sealed it, would that be very bad? Would it hurt my sub/amp?
Question 2: Will my subs be getting more power or less or no affect? Is there anything I should know after converting? Does anyone think I shouldnt do this? I just want to make sure Im making the right decision.
most prefabs are boxes that are tuned for spl so that in teh stores they get LOUD, and they do that, lol thats why i go to best buy and circuit city switch wires around and try to blow everything they have for some laughs lol, and i love to out talk anyone there lol, BUT besides that, i would reccomend building a new box, cause that isnt going to totally seal it, or take apart the board the port is on and rebuild that board redo it and put the vinyl over it as if there never was a port
Fill the port with towels tightly packed and see if it sounds better. 37hz is kinda high, but dont L7's recomend ported boxes? In my experience, if the box is going to be prebabricated, go sealed because ported enclosures have to many variables invloved for it to sound good with different subs.
i just sold 2 12 inch p3's they are nice, but, for you, do 2 pvc pipes, im assuming this will be your first time, but for this, take seans advice over mine, but i can try, and put 2 circle ports in EACH chamber to reduce port noise, but what is your box going to be?
im going to make my own box, rockfordfosgate's site says use 1 cubic foot for a ported box, right now i have one of these subs, and its in a 1.83cubic foot box w/ a large slot for a port, and it sounds great. Would it sound better in a 1 cubic foot box, or should i make them bigger? My second sub is comin this week w/ a new amp to power both
