Sub box size?

Recommended Posts

That varies depending on a few things. To start, ported or sealed box?


CPU: AMD Sempron 2400+ / MOBO: Abit NF7-S2G / GPU: WinFast A180BT 64MB / RAM: Mushkin DDR333 256MBx2 / HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 120GB

Most manufacturers will list it as a spec on the product page. It should give you the volume of the box you will need as well as the depth that the sub requires to fit. You can also stuff the box if it is designed to be sealed to cheat the volume requirement a bit. Check out Crutchfield  they are a great audio resource.

This is a very open question. Are you building your own in-home sub, or a box for a car? Where in the car is it being installed? Is it designed to be ported or not? Is it a long throw or short throw, what crossover are you thinking? Do you want it to just work or actually sound right?

 Depends on the woofer itself.

Is there a way i can figure out a "close enough" size without knowing it from the manufacture? 

No. You need to know the recommended size, or the Theil/Small parameters of the driver.

If you google the model number it should give you the specs
