    pics of 12 sub?

    Hi, I just got a cheap Autobahn 12" sub with an amp.

    It's a bit scruffy and seems rather large. Takes up one whole side of the boot...is this normal? Does anyone have pics of 12"subs in their boot so I can see?

    Is it possible to get a new smaller box as this one is enclosed with perspex on the front.

    Cheers

    If you got a user manual with your sub it'll tell you what volume box you'll need for sealed/ported. Then using a bit of maths its possible to create a new box for it. If you just make a random sized box you could really make it sound poor.

    Hope your box is bolted down too, its a bit dangerous if its not fixed and easyer to pinch.

    Cheers, Jang.

    If you make a fibreglass sub box you can mould it to the passengers side wheel arch and save alot of space.

    Or go here www.autoacoustics.co.uk and get a already made one of there.

    Ported boxes tend to be larger than sealed, bandpass even bigger again.

    Most current 12" subs should work in approx 1 - 1.5 cu/ft sealed so if your box is filling the whole boot that sounds excessive

    Two 12" Alpine Type-R subs & two Alpine V12 amps fit nicely in the Coupe boot

    Sorry for digging up an old thread (hey, I used the search function ), but how do you guys secure your amps/subs to the boot?

    Oh and a very common question, but which you prefer sealed and which prefer ported?

    I listen to a wide variety of music, so which would be best for me?
