ported subwoofer box that fits in the trunk?

i went down to my local car audio store the purchase a ported subwoofer box for my two 10 inch subs i went to see if it would fit but the trunk opening was not big enough nor was the back seat access to the trunk so this is my question has anyone found a ported box for two 10 inch subs? if so please let me know so i can order asap. i know subthump has custom made boxes for camaros but none are ported...

ported seems to be useless seeing as how the ported flow wont go into the cabin. it will just be muffled in the trunk. think of it like talking with you hand over your mouth... i have a full enclosed box with 2 12s and wow does it hit bro.

Ported would not be useless. If you have low power and a very effecient sub ported would be the way to go. However I do agree the sound would be muffled.

i agree about a sealed box. i built one to fit in the trunk the way i wanted. it has 2 12"kickers getting about 240watts rms each. they sound great. they will sound better when i get a bigger amp!

custom built ported box! If ported in the trunk was useless so would sealed. Bass is omni directional it will fill the car no matter where it is. Ported boxes are more efficient and if built right alot louder.

Ported or Sealed is a preferance. Seeing how this trunk is small piece of crap. I could not do the system I wanted without spending a fortune.

I have also had several requests for PORTED enclosures for the Camaro also. I will be working on some designs in the near future. There is nothing wrong with sealed but generally I tell most of my customers to "go ported or go home". There are several advantages to ported: much more output than sealed (usually 3dB minimum--- typically around 5dB louder than sealed with exact same variables--- same sub, amp, etc) plus the low end extension that you CANNOT get with a sealed enclosure. Easy to get down to 30-35Hz F3 with ported. Same sealed box usually is around 45Hz at best on a good sub. In other words, a ported 10" sub with enough volume will sound like a 15". Disadvantages: normally LARGER overall size than ported with minimum space req'd per sub size, port or vent design must be accurate (to sub being used), and sonically the response will have a "hump" in frequency usually around 50Hz depending on size and tuning freq (meaning wherever the "hump" is in the response, bass freq will be naturally much louder at that point).... Sealed enclosures are smoother sounding, require no design, but do need to meet minimum box sizes to perform.

In a Camaro, the problem is the size of the opening in the trunk. The trunk itself has a decent amount of room but anything built into it must either enter from the main trunk opening or the front seat area which again limits "how big" you can build an enclosure. The areas on each rear side in the trunk or prime area for a subbox but most have to be built custom to fit (and fit thru the trunk opening). If you do NOT want to cut anything in the car (OEM trunk carpet) then this limits how big you can build one. You need at least 1.0 cu ft to PORT a 10" sub and have good results. Larger, even better. We usually don't go bigger than 1.4 or 1.5 cu ft per 10" and this is really not happening in a Camaro on each side without removing some carpet and building a subbox to use every inch of space there. 12" or pointless in this location UNLESS sealed. There are tons of drivers out there that do extremely well sealed in around 1 cu ft. but NOT ported. I would put a 10" ported in EVERY TIME over a 12" sealed but that's my opinion. I'm sure others will disagree. A 12" sub needs 1.5 cu ft MIN, more close to 2.0cu ft EACH to perform well. And of course, the other alternative is to build a more basic, rectangular subbox to fit across the entire area in the front of the trunk (going all the way across) but again, limited to how big will fit INTO the trunk. Also, will almost always be louder with better bass response with subs firing to the rear of the car (basically, loading them against the rear wall, whereas the bass wave is reflected back into the cabin area)...

Just thoughts... Fast and easy with good results (considering) go with a prefab SubThump or similar box. Keep in mind "prefab" boxes are built to fit with minimum amount of time to install them and are usually pretty cost effective.. Better results = have something custom built like you want. Custom work will be more expensive without question but a good shop will build the box better and offer you options on cosmetic finishes as well. It makes no difference how a box is finished on the outside either (carpet, vinyl, fiberglass & paint)... They will all sound the same. You will pay more for the amount of time involved to deliver the "flash" in a custom install.

With the Subthump boxes, at least the dual boxes, you can only fit shallow subs.

That is totally incorrect information so don't be spreadin lies man. Our dual box has a depth of 8.75". Certainly not shallow. I have even made custom boxes to fit a JL13w7. That sub ain't shallow either. And yes, we do offer a ported box.

No lies being spread. Asked you that in a PM and got that answer from you. I asked you if I could fit dual 12" w3v3 in your pre-built dual boxes on the internet and you said no. And the w3v3 isn't really deep either. So I'm not spreading lies "man". I'm not here to argue or give lies, just give people the information that was given to me.

Thanks

maybe free-air or infinite baffle subs may do the trick.

Strange..We can fit 12w6 easy so I can't believe I would ever say no to w3s on that particular box unless I thought you were asking about a truck box. If you look at the specs on the product page it says 8.75 which is > than 6.65 of w3 so it should be relatively obvious just comparing specs. If that isn't enough you can look at some of the pictures where you would see that we can even fit 12L7 solos which are a lot deeper than w3s too.



This this thread isn't about us per se, I just wanted to step in and set the facts straight about our product, not start any sort of argument with anyone

To be %100 percent honest, I was just stating what you said to me. Must have been a communication. You see the funny thing is, I pulled up your website at my local car audio shop and they even told me after comparing specs that it wouldn't fit. I never did compare them myself.

Granted a single 10 ported would be louder than two 12s IB more than likely. But I think the low end rumble will go with the two 12s.

I really don't see the point in starting a new thread so I'm going to ask here since it's the same topic, relatively.

Anyway, so, I'm guessing that 2 12" D.A.D. BD subs with a ported enclosure wouldn't fit? Or am I missing something?

James, the owner of DAD (JMH AudioConcepts) of Tyler, TX, is a good friend of mine and built one with (2) of the BD10's ported. I will find out actual box size but I do know the car did a 139.2 SPL at USACi Finals with an ARC 1000w amp on them. I'm guessing, however, that he probably has around 3.0 cubes total, maybe a little more internally in the box. Both subs and vent are rear facing and I know he got it into the car in one piece. Just not enough room for 2-12's without building a really custom (in the trunk), multiple section box to get the space. One 12" would be doable.
