    I know this has nothing to do with my build..... But I felt like I've made some friends on here and I'd like to share what I do for a living.....
    Q
    Was limited to 6 hours on the box, so I couldn't do anything to crazy. Just a solid birch box... 2.15 ^3ft gross tuned to 34Hz based on 12 ^2in per cubic foot port.....

    What kind of subs are those? Why birch for the box? I've always thought MDF was the best material....

    Memphis Mojo 6 1/2 inch...

    Birch is harder, lighter, and easier to work with (no pilot hole or counter sink)..... it just sucks all beat hell when you have to sand it! Belt sander is a must AND its $65 a sheet....

    We all know that bass is just moving air, and the more you move, the more bass you make. I wanted the bass extension and output of a ported cabinet, and I only had 2 cubic foot. With that amount of air space, ported, I could have done one 10", two 8", or four 6 1/2", and four 6 1/2" has more cone area, in turn will move more air. I'll get the bass of two 10" out it!!!

    A little work... a lot of work.... Does it matter when they're floating the bill?? Haha

    This job is gonna build my roll cage, so there's a way bigger picture being painted!!!

    I've always assumed (I guess, I don't remember anyone telling me about it...) that since bigger subs have lower frequency responses bigger was better for low end. Guess it would matter less in a tuned port box, but I have always preferred sealed.

    See, someone has been pulling your leg......haha

    Most subwoofer have a frequency response into the 20s, which is way below what the human ear can hear. You have to feel those frequencies. Most boxes are tuned to 32-40hz wich is perfect for 95% of the music out there..... I have one Sundown Audio x10 in my beater work truck with 2800 watts just smacking you in the face!!!

    Sew, I believe most people mistake volume, how loud, for frequency responses. Those 6 and 8 inch subs play the same frequencies as that 15, that 15 just has more physical cone area to.move more air at that low frequency, so It plays it louder...... thats why we do MULTIPLE small subs, for the physical cone area. So the sub box as a whole playa the frequencies at a big volume......
