1.5 cubes vs 2.0 cubes

Recommended Posts

if i bought a 12" rlp, and fed it at least 500 watts, what would the difference be between a 1.5 cube ported box vs a 2.0 cube ported box

it seems that people have been more happy with the output at 2.0 and greater,

so the bigger the box, the louder it will sound

there are limits, but with in reason, the RL-p is a ported box driver and 2.0 seems to have been a sweet spot, unless you want to try to go larger

ported boxes can sound just as good as sealed ones, it's all in the design

the specs of the design, lend it to be a ported box sub

Benefits of a larger enclosure?

Ability to extend lower.

More efficient, lower power handling.

Flatter response.

i would chose the 2ft^3 tuned about 34hz....that's a great streetbeater box for the rl-p...the sq isn't lacking in it either..

wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :slayer:

Not to jack the thread or anything but what would you rec as far as a SQ ported box for an RL-P 12, a bit bigger? I'm not sure

I'm still toying around with making a transmission line for the Rl-p just for fun but I might put my IDMAX in that instead, since I just made a fiberglass box for my SS

no, i wouldn't go any bigger. in fact, for sq, i'd just tune a bit lower, possibly. but only if ur midbass was strong. IME, tuning real low takes the output side of things outa the equation. when i did the 2.5ft^3 box tuned to 28hz, i honestly didn't like the sound or the output from the rl-p (or xxx for that matter), but when i slugged the box to get it up to 34-35hz, displacement dropped to 1.9-2ft^3...both sounded awesome.

i know of a few ppl running about 2ft^3 tuned to 28hz and love it..

that's why i suggest the 2ft^3 box, it just seems to work well in it..

wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :slayer:
