Is a bigger subwoofer enclosure better?

By making the enclosure a bit bigger it will become more efficient in many cases, increasing output. Remember, there is such a thing as too big. As the size of the enclosure increases, the mechanical limits of the woofer will be easier to reach. If the box is too small (by a reasonable amount) add power.

How much airspace does a 10 inch kicker need?

For a 10-inch woofer, the volume recommendation is 0.625 cubic feet, and the recommendation for an eight-inch speaker is 0.375 cubic feet. You can build a larger enclosure to allow for more volume of space inside to produce a flatter sound, which is better for music that is less bass-heavy.

What enclosure is best for subwoofer?

Band-pass enclosures The sound that comes out of the port is extra loud within a narrow frequency range. Because bandpass boxes are super-efficient within that range, they tend to boom. These enclosures are used for subwoofers.

How do you calculate air space in a speaker box?

You simply measure the height, width and depth (in inches), multiply them together and then divide that number by 1728. If the box has internal measurements of 6″ high*18″ wide*12″ deep then the volume of the box is 1296/1728=. 75 ft^3.

Does subwoofer enclosure shape matter?

While this is a hot debate, the general consensus on this topic is that the shape of your subwoofer box doesn’t matter. Instead, you should be focusing on the engineering inside the subwoofer enclosure and the driver itself.

What sounds better a ported or sealed box?

If you like your music “boomy”, vibrating your car’s body panels, you want to consider a ported (vented) enclosure. These types of enclosures, when built with the properly calculated volume and tuned to the correct frequency for the subwoofer, are generally louder than a sealed enclosure.
