when you got those subwoofers, you dident happen to look in the box and see a little booklet that said "user manual" did you? in this magical "user manual" it tells you what type of enclosure to use based on your preference and usually kicker manuals are even nice enough to give you magical box plans... nifty little thing that "user manual" is...

no... there wrong... i built a sealed enclosure for two CVR 15's according to their box specs (it was 2.3cubes each chamber...it fell inbetween their sealed range) and the bass was hella sluggish and just not loud... we put the kickers in a sealed 2 chamber with 1cube each sound and it was pounding... im planning on venting the sealed enclosure with aeroports an have each side 2.3cubes vented at 34hz and see what happens...

kicker is known for having fucked up boxplans in the user's manuel

sealed 1 cube each
um, no, he wants to go ported, and 1 cube each sealed would suck, because i have my 12's in 1.28 cubic feet sealed, and normally, 15's require just a lil more airspace....

the CVR15" sucks in a sealed over 1.5cubes... putting it in a 1cube will make it more punchy, tighter response... putting it in (lets say 1.75cubes) will make it more sluggish.... 1.5cubes is about right... 1 - 1.25 cubes if you want tighter bass... now thats not for ALL 15" subs... thats just for the CVR15's... and unlike some that have commented on this topic, i HAVE worked with the CVR15's and have tried them in different sized sealed enclosures...

AHHHH someone hit it on the head. You put 1000 watts into a sub with a 1 cube box and it is gonna be Punchy alright, Punch right out the structure.

Why would you say something goofy like that? Small sealed enclosures are a good example of high power, small size applications :dunno:

:confused: so i've been wrong all these years in thinking a smaller box can take more power :twak:

What I am saying is that if you put a 15" sub into a 1 Cube box, and power it with 1000 watts you are gonna blow up the sub. Sealed box 1.8 [email protected], or for SQ 5.2 [email protected] watts. Or so you also know, for Ported you will need 3.0 [email protected] watts, and for deep SPL, 5.0 [email protected] watts. So know do you guys think that you can put a 15" sub in that small of a box, and power it with just 500 watts, no way, well you can, but you are gonna be buying a new sub, it is called overloading :angry:

yea mang, i guess after all this time, all these years of testing, high power systems need large enclosures bro.

Ill keep it short n simple

smaller box = more backpressure on sub = less excursion meaning u will probably reach the thermal limits of the sub long before you will reach the mechanical limits.

all things being equal a sub will handle more power in a smaller box than they will in a larger ones
