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.
Bandpass
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"
Maximum Speaker Depth
Your subwoofer or speaker must not exceed this dimension in order to properly mount in this enclosure.
8-1/2"
Total Box Volume
The internal volume measurement in cubic feet before subwoofer magnet displacement.
2.1 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.
14"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
24"
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
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.
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 Length
The length of the included port tubes. Many tubes are cardboard and may be cut to the length recommended by the sub's manufacturer. Check your product's owner's manual for the recommended port length for your sub.

WOW this is amazing

January 21, 2009

So basically I slapped my sub in like 5 minutes and it hits hard! It kills my ears when I put the deck at like 10 and shakes the car pretty good. Going from my sealed to bandpass box I feel like I added 500 watts.

It Is What It Is....

November 6, 2009

Best part of the box is definitely its appearance. Entire box is not 3/4" mdf, certain panels are 5/8". The worst part is the plexiglass is only 3/8" - way too thin for all the pressure this bandpass box tries to create. Flexing of any panels = less bass & muddier sound. (anyone that has used particle board boxes or dynamat on their trunk knows this). I modified my box with dynamat extreme on all the panels on the ported side and doubled up the plexiglass for the sealed side, HUGE difference.

Sound quality is pretty decent, but not meant for all subs though. In my opinion bandpass boxes for most 12's should be at least 30% bigger than these to hit the ultra, ultra lows.

If you have box building skills, design & build the ideal box for whatever subs you have for best results, if you don't mind modifying this box, then, for the price this box is ideal but it is what it is.

Decent

September 13, 2006

This box arrived about a week ago. I installed an Alpine 12" Type-R DVC sub w/ a 550 RMS amp.

First Impression: It didnt look like the box in the picture, it was slightly different it has two ports, one on both sides unlike in the picture. The wiring mount was on the back.... But since you have to mount the Sub in backwards to fit and the wiring mount is on the back it is wrong side of the subwoofer... making it useless... So I ended up having to buy a $15 drill peice to cut a hole on top to put another terminal cup making it look slightly wierd having two terminal cups (and its on top now...).

Performance: It hits a lot harder than the sealed box I had, and rumbles the car quite well. But I really noticed with my subwoofer it seems to have trouble hitting the really low notes (

Great great box

February 14, 2011

I've owned a bunch of different boxes for my alpine type x and this one is by far the best ive ever had. The plexi glass is SUPER strong and not only does it make your sub hit way harder.. It allows you to turn down your amp a little because believe me this ported bandpass works well, and second, your trunk rattling problems will be solved!! Granted there is some small vibration the box literally eats 90% of the rattle before it even reaches car metal. Loud clean bass. 10 out of 10.

Sounds good

February 24, 2009

I put my JL audio W6 in this box and i only had a alpine mrp 500 amp going to it. I recommend using drywall screws for the plexiglass instead of the ones that come with it. other than that it hits good i had to mount my speaker upside down though, it was too big to go in normally

sonic sub box abv12

October 22, 2008

i just put this in my suv with a new pioneer premier 12". I beats the air flow is excellent and i only expect it to get louder as the sub breaks in. the only issue is the top and bottom two screws are hard to get to with a drill or phillips, small tools are required for the installation.

January 24, 2008

I used to have a smaller and cheaper box so I decided to upgrade to this one man was it worth it it sounds deeper and looks 10x better I added some polyester into it and it sounds somewhat deeper if your looking for something that will save you space and make the sub sound better I recommend this box.

real nice

March 21, 2012

Enclosure is real nice! I could have made a better choice on the subs that I installed, but was satisfied by the amount money I spent. The box didn't really perform with my choice of sub, but it has potential. Excelent box!
