I need help with subwoofer box designs!!! Answered
I've got this new alpine (well not new, but it still works) 12 inch subwoofer. The box it's in was probably alright for in the trunk of the car, but I'm planning on using it inside, as my sub just blew. Here's the size demensions of it: 15" wide, 16" high, and 13" deep. There's a hole about 3" x 2 1/4" in the back for the wire to come out. I was planning on using the internal amplifier from the blown subwoofer, in this box, but I need to cut a hole to fit the amplifier in. It sounds really punchy, but for a 200 watt subwoofer (that's rms) it doesn't shake my floor at all because it's basically a sealed box, the sub comes out the front, should I cut a hole in the front or side for a port? What if I used the pipe out of the blow subwoofer box, or is it specifically tuned for the 8" that was in there before? Thanks for any help.
