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.
Hatchback Style, Angled Back
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.
14"
Total Box Volume
The internal volume measurement in cubic feet before subwoofer magnet displacement.
1.158 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"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
16"
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"
Second Depth
The second depth is used only when the box is slanted or angled. This value is the top measurement and it is measured in inches.
11"
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
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Gray
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.

Solid Box

January 23, 2013

I decided to go with a sealed box for my Pioneer TS-W304R sub, as I listen to a wide variety of music and wanted ensure SQ and accuracy. The box came to me in fine shape, I think it had one little ding in a corner of the carpet, but nothing you'd care about or notice, really. It's solid- 3/4" MDF instead of the thinner stuff some companies try to push on you. While it appeared well sealed, I caulked all interior seams, just in case. I also added some dense poly batting- not polyfill, but the stuff that comes in sheets- to the interior walls to reduce potential unwanted resonances. Lastly, I added the "hook" side of some strong velcro to the floor of my trunk, which sticks well to the carpet the box is covered in. Between the weight of the box, the speaker, and the velcro, it hasn't moved an inch in 6 months of driving. Anyhow, the setup is louder than I expected from a sealed box (because everybody else seems to go with ported), and accurate enough for all kinds of music. No unwanted sounds from the box, and it is holding up well under a lot of loud play. There is only one feature I'd change: it has binding posts on the outside that lead to spade connectors on the inside. Why not have binding posts on the inside, too? Seems like a bright idea, though I don't recall ever having seen it on any other box.

It works

Traded it to a friend as soon as it arrived. He said it sounds great for a $20 box. Couldn't tell the difference between that and the $200 he had before.

Great box

July 28, 2012

I bought this box to replace the .6cf truck box I was using in my car, And I must say this box made a huge difference with my 12 inch Kicker Comp. Originally I thought the sub was weak, But now I see it was the box holding it back. I highly recommend this box.

Solid box for the cost

July 6, 2012

Pros: Standard 3/4" MDF construction, all the joints are clean and it's sealed up well. The carpeting is very clean, no creases or wrinkles or anything. The sloped back is good for butting up against the rear seats in my hatchback. Cons: The terminal post assembly on mine was a little crappy. Replaced the amp fuse before I realized it was the terminal. They're loose and wobble, which causes it to cut in and out. But to be honest, it's an easy fix. The box is definitely worth the $37 it's going for now, but not quite the $60 list price.

Lighter then expected

March 13, 2012

I guess for the price you can't go wrong. I thought the box would be more heavy duty. I don't think the entire box is 3/4" MDF, just the front where you mount the sub. The rest is probably 5/8". I'm sure it will work just fine though. The only complaint is that it took two weeks to get the box delivered.

Sonic boxes are the best!

January 22, 2012

I ran 2 of these boxes behind my seats in my ext. Cab truck and i cant think of one bad thing to say about them! I also just bought 2 15" boxes of the same same type from here and i was just amazed all over again! Take this review from someone who has purchased 4 of the sonic boxes from here now. You cant beat the deal you get on these things!!! they are the cheapest boxes you will find and all of my are flawless! the carpet is outstanding, terminals are great, and they are completely sealed on the inside and out. Either build your own boxes or buy Sonic boxes. There is no in between!

Great box

March 26, 2011

I would definately recommend this box for any vehicle type. I have it in an Isuzu Rodeo and it fits right behind the back seats with the same angle. I did make a triangular port in one of the corners, but it is a very nice box. Great for the price.

Unbeatable at this price point. Solidly built and looks quite nice. Many of the boxes I have seen at 2 to 3 times this price are not as solidly built and look generic. I'm using this with a Rockford Fosgate P1S412 and it helps deliver tight, clean sounding bass. If I need another box with these specs in the future, this is the box I will choose every time.

Just Right...

February 15, 2011

Bought this for the price and expected to widen the opening for my sub but it slipped right in and it is a very clean and sturdy box, connectors are plastic and are a little, weird, but they work and thats all that matters. Good buy! For 20 bucks you cant go wrong! You can't even buy a sheet of MDF for that!

Very good box

January 2, 2011

Summary Pros: cheap, easy to setup, compact height, nice looks. Cons: Had to adjust the hole size for my sub. All in all I like this box a lot. I put a 12 inch RE Audio SRX sub into. The installation was easy. Drilled holes and I used T-nuts from Lowe's to install the sub. The only issue was that my 12 inch sub did not quite fit into this hole. I bought a $10 half round file (tool) from Lowe's and made it bigger. This box is that it's very compact. I like the low height. Most midsize and smaller cars should have no problems with it.
