Speaker Box / Enclosure Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
Subwoofer Cutout Shape
This is the shape of the enclosures cutout hole and defines the style of subwoofer that can be installed.
Round / Circle
Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Sealed
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Square/Rectangle
Cutout Diameter or Length
The actual diameter of the hole in the subwoofer box. Length is the measured length per side of a square subwoofer or speaker opening.
11-1/8"
Maximum Speaker Depth
Your subwoofer or speaker must not exceed this dimension in order to properly mount in this enclosure.
13"
Total Box Volume
The internal volume measurement in cubic feet before subwoofer magnet displacement.
1.13 cubic feet
Box Volume (Each Chamber)
This is the total air space inside each chamber of the empty subwoofer enclosure. By matching this value with the recommended air space of the subwoofer, you will be able to know if the subwoofer will match this box.
1.13 cubic feet
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
14"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
14"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
14"
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
3/4"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

Binding posts (banana clip ready)
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Black
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.
Carpet
Compatible Vehicle Make and Model
The model of vehicle that this vehicle specific product is designed for. Please keep in mind that engine variations can affect the compatibility of the products.

Decent Box

April 2, 2012

Overall this is a decent box. It's pretty sturdy and the sealing is alright. The only complaints I would have is the carpeting job is pretty poor, lots of lines. Also, the metal clips inside the box for the wire are a little flimsy and an odd size. But in the end not a bad bang for your buck.

Good Value on a well made box

November 4, 2011

This box has a very sturdy feel to it. I have just one gripe, I suspect that two of the side panels are not actually of a 3/4th thickness. Not a huge deal for such an inexpensive box though.

Wrong Box

October 4, 2011

I can't comment on the Absolute box because Sonic sent me their generic version of it that didn't have the polyfill on the insides or the absolute sticker on it. The sonic one worked just fine other than one terminal showing up broken. Luckily I was wiring up at 4 ohms so only needed one input. Overall, decently constructed for the price and of course free shipping.

Great box for the money!!!

September 27, 2011

This box came as part of a package deal I bought and I was really impressed with the quality. It produces great sound from such a small box. I have a Kenwood 400 RMS 1200 Peak 12" sub in it and it sounds superb. It hits clean with no distortion.

good replacement sub box

September 5, 2011

I purchased this sub box to fit in the trunk of my suby. The box is made sturdy and has decent acoustics for the it size. One suggestion: make sure to reseal the inside of the box, so that there is no air escaping in unnecessary places.

Great value!

December 4, 2010

I have a really old 12" Kicker CVR installed in this box. It actually performs better in this sealed enclosure than it did in a ported one! Truly ground shaking bass from a really small package! My only gripe is that there was no polyfill included.

I installed a 12" Alpine Type R in this box and im giving it 1200rms and it sounds amazing! I went from a custom ported 3cu box and I was expecting this to sound terrible but i was pleasantly surprised. This box can not be beat for the price!
