no one has built a box around the sub. it should make the bass tighter and more powerful. you'll need at least .3cfI don't really want to replace any components fo the bose system that came with my car, so i'm wondering if anyone has tried building a box around the sub without moving it and if it helps the sound quality/feeling of the bass at all?
I don't know if a box will help... this sub (I assume) is setup for a free air install, it's the separation of air (front and back of the speaker cone) that helps load the subwoofer for sound.no one has built a box around the sub. it should make the bass tighter and more powerful. you'll need at least .3cf
.3cf (cubic feet) is the interior volume of the box. each sub will recommend an interior volume of a sealed box and a ported box. if you are to build your own box, you would need to calculate the box dimensions as to have the correct interior volume.I did look around all over the forum, and search ... i couldn't find a post that delt with the facrory bose sub and a box. Lots of people installing new subs, or lining their trunk with fiberglass, or some foam and other stuff, but nothing about a box on the existing sub. I'll have to look into weather or not its a free-air sub or not.
ryceboi .... what do you mean by .3cf? I've never built a sub box before ... so i don't really know what it involves. I didn't look into that yet because i wanted to first determine if it would even be worth the effort.
