Another feature that the new dual sub boxes will have is a vent cap that you can screw over the vent opening on the back of the box to seal the box. In the past I've had customers that insisted on having a sealed box because they wanted sound quality over spl. Now with the new box design you can try it both ways and decide what you like.
I've tried several different brands and models of subs so far in the dual 12 vented box. Even though the box is 1.5 ft3 per side and some of the sub manufacturers recommend 1.75-2.25 vented, they still play deep and play twice as loud running the box vented instead of sealed.
For years Memphis Audio has been telling there dealers that there 12 inch subs will work well in vented boxes as small as 1.25 even though they recommend 2.25. The main difference is the power needed and the issue of fitting the port inside such a compact box. As the box gets smaller the power needed to push the sub increases.
That is very cool. I did something similar on a fiberglass box i built for my old jeep. I used round PVC for the ports and at home depot they sell "test plugs" that can be used to seal up the PVC so it can be pressure tested.
So I could flip back and forth between sealed and ported. Ported was always much louder, but certain types of music would cause my subs to bottom out. It was nice to have the option.
Will you have to pull the box out of the truck in order to seal it up?
:dunno:Is there a change to your release date on this box? The website says they would be available last week of April, but I still haven't seen anything yet. Im anxiously waiting! I know you're a busy man but could please get an update?!
I'll shoot spome pics and put them on the site so you guys can start placing orders. I've been shipping to my dealers for the last week and its going to be about a week before I catch up on there orders and start shipping online orders.
I have sent many messages through email but never get a single reposnse. All I want is to get my order fixed and shipped. order # 1794
i changed it from a single 12 to the dual 12 you said on the phone you were going to send an invoice but I still havent got that
I recently bought a single 10" ported box and I put in an Alpine Type-R running with a kicker amp at 420w rms, I was just curious if you recommend using polyfil. I have used it in the past but I was never really sure of its purpose or if it would help or hurt with the foxbox.
First I would like to say that im new here to DT.
Now that's out of the way here is my situation... I bought a 05 Dodge Ram QC before I deployed, bought a crappy Ebay box and put to 2 12 memphis 15-PR12S4 in. Sounded horrible. I was advised to get some shallow mount 12s so I bought 2 12 P3...
i have asked in the other thread but got no response is there a rough timeline of when these will be ready or even a rough idea if they are going to be deeper that the current boxes as far as mounting depth?
Whats better for a rear 60/40 split setup on a 06 ram 1500 sport, a vented or sealed enclosure? And how much are these running for? I plan on moving my 2 12" from the box on top of my seats when I install custom leather.
