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.
Vented / Ported
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.
11-1/4"
Maximum Speaker Depth
Your subwoofer or speaker must not exceed this dimension in order to properly mount in this enclosure.
14-3/4"
Total Box Volume
The internal volume measurement in cubic feet before subwoofer magnet displacement.
1.66 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.
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
13-1/2"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
18"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
16"
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
Tuning Frequency
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.

Port Details

Number of Ports
The number of ports the enclosure has.
1
Tuning Frequency
Port Diameter
The outside diameter of the port. Check the product's owner's manual for the recommended port diameter for your sub.
1-3/4"

Definetly not 11 1/4".

June 5, 2011

Bought this box to go along with a RE Audio SEX12D4. When I go to put the sub into the box, the lip that is along the inner diameter of the hole is preventing the basket from even going into the box. Had I left it, I wouldn't have been able to secure the sub, as it was ~1 inch from going in. In order to avoid the $20 return shipping, I removed the lip from the inside to make the sub fit.

tl;dr: If you're buying an RE Audio SEX series sub, DON'T buy this box, unless you're ready for lots of measuring and cutting.

Decent box

February 14, 2012

Didn't fit the 12" I had ordered. So I had to reverse mount it. Still, has held up quite well and shows no signs of nicks, cracks, or any other damage.

Strong and durable constuction!

December 22, 2011

I have a 400 watt RMS Hifonics in this box and it plays beautifully. The bass is nice and thick and makes the sound stage in my vehicle great. The wood is very strong and the carpeting is top notch. This box feels like it can take a beating. Great job!

Great product and excellent company to deal with

June 14, 2011

I bought this box for my truck not really knowing what to expect with the box from some off the wall company, oh WOW what can I say, the build quality is EXCELLENT and so is the ATTENTION TO DETAIL. I would recommend this Box and this manufacturer to ANYONE that wanted a great deal an FANTASTIC pre-fab enclosure. IT SOUND SOO GOOD and the wood is SOO THICK i know that my alpine r12 won't rattle it to pieces like so many el-cheapo enclosures have been destroyed by my subs in the past. Top Notch Great Job.

Bang for your buck

October 18, 2010

I have this box in my trunk loaded with a 12" type X amped by a Kicker ZX750.1. I didn't have too much money to throw around and get myself a great box. I'm very impressed on how this box has handle so far(6 months). I was very skeptical at first, thinking jeez, this box is gonna just crumble at that much handling. I was wrong, it really is just a nice common box. Don't expect the perfect highs or lows, but this thing will put out bump. I loaded it at 2 ohms, very very easy to hook up to the mounts in the rear. very very space friendly, that is also a reason why I purchased this, my trunk has very little room. all in all, I'm very very impressed with how this box has handled so far, not the perfect sound but its still good quality and she puts out. if you don't have too much cash to throw around on a box, this is your best bet rite here.
