Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great DealI looked for a sub box in town and could not match the price I got it for on Parts Express shipped to my house, Great deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly FunctionalI just purchased my fourth unit of this type, and I recommend it highly. AudioSnobs will turn their noses at this box, as it would require a driver with either a low Vas, Fs, or Qts, or all of the above, to give flat response with this box. There's one problem with that; few, if any of the people that I personally know, like their bass response flat, unless the source material has a massive peak in the 38-53 Hz range. The truth is, this box ends up sounding very good with a driver needing more room for a couple of reasons. First, it is tuned to about 44 Hz, which is at right about the fundamental note of a bass guitar, and many synthesized low freq percussion instruments. Secondly, that frequency corresponds decently to the mastering done on large percentage of the bass material in today's music. It is sheer folly to brag about a box that hits 20 Hz, as 99.999% of the music that is mastered for consumer listening today, has absolutely zero program material at that frequency. This is not a conspiracy by audio engineers; they know that cone excursions go wild at the extreme low registers, and have no desire to either waste your amplifier power, or to destroy your woofers, by artificially pumping up the signal where it does little good. Third, the peak produced at around that frequency by the smallish size, is consistent with what a large percentage of listeners would consider desirable in their music. Flat bass is often described as anemic by many listeners, who might be surprised to discover that they actually enjoy a bit of accentuation at, or around the frequency mentioned. Last but not least, because the tuning frequency coincides with the mentioned range, the box actually ends up having decent control on the driver's cone at high input powers. Hemholtz resonance, if even attainable, occurs over a very narrow range, and the range on this box seems to agree nicely with much of today's music. Obviously, I wouldn't recommend pumping signal from infra-bass rap tunes that have been rendered low-frequency psychotic by an Epicenter through this box, but failing that, you might be surprised how well this little thing works, on most 12-inch drivers.Peace.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best builtI purchased this sometime ago. I mostly bought it because I had a speaker with no cabinet and I thought I would make a sub out of it. When it arrived two of the corners were smashed. I did have a set of metal corners from an old cabinet that I stripped the hardware from so I put those on. When I went to drill the holes to mount the speaker, the wood around the speaker hole split and I had to glue and clamp it back together. I have ordered other products from Parts Express and have been very satisfied and I will do so again. But I can't recommend this particular item to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suprisingly versitleI purchased this woofer box basically it was inexpensive and something I could experiment with. First off I used a Dayton plate subwoofer amp, DA-250 SUB-AMP with first a dual voice coil woofer I had kicking around and it really sounded very good. It had good deep bass. Then I tried an Eminence 2512 Deltalight Neo speaker with the same amp and it was fantastic. I believe I can build some commercial use subs at a lower cost this way. I then took my 1972 Fender Bassman amplifier and hooked it up to the 2512 Deltalight and it was very good, actually surprisingly good. I then connected a 1966 Univox U45B 12 watt amplifier and installed the Eminence Swamp Thang, and it worked very good also actually excellent. Buy this box if you want to experiment with 12 inch speakers, you will learn a lot!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good & CheapThis box is good but attracts a ton of lint. The wire connection cup in the back is a bit cheap, but functional. It arrived with some dings in the felt finish. Overall, I think this is a no-brainer. Can't build a box like this for less cost. Unless you are looking to build a 12" with a plate amplifier, you should look into this. Even so, I can see myself installing a plate amp in the interior of this box, or cutting a hole in the back. The tips on tuning the port in the video are great and there are a few different subwoofers that work with this volume. I chose the cheap Dual 12" sub. It works great. Dual 12" powered by a Marantz MA-500 monoblock, sub preamp out at +11dB. This setup is working great. It doesn't get much bass below 40Hz but I think a port tune should get those rumbles going.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cabinet arrived with some damageThe cabinet is not as sturdy as I had hoped. There are a couple of dents on the corners like the box it came in had been dropped. The box did not show signs of damage. It could well have been the FedEx man throwing on my porch. I realize for the price I was not getting something built like Fort Knox, but in addition the wood around the hole for the speaker had split and I had to glue and clamp it before installing the speaker. I marked and pre-drilled the holes for the screws to hold the speaker and the speaker grill I also purchased (I am by the way very satisfied with the grills) and the wood split again in a different place. Again had to glue it and clamp it before installing the speaker and grill. I was looking for a cabinet to put a spare 12" speaker in and I am not planning on moving this around too much so I guess it will be fine. But if you are looking for something "road worthy" I would not recommend this cabinet.

What protective corners does Parts Express sell that would work on this cabinet?  Recommended feet?

Asked by: padenski
Since the edges of this cabinet are sharp and do not have round overs, the only corners that will work well would be the ball corners like below. can use any type of foot you would like for these, we have many options. The Peavey set below would be a good choice.

Asked by: padenski
Since the box is a 12" I am looking for a 12" speaker and not a 10"

Can I get it without the carpet? I want to seal it, mount it, under my deck outside with a marine speaker.

Asked by: bfairman1

Would either the Eminence Delta -12 LF or Dayton PA310-8 12 PRO be a reasonable match for PA Subs with these enclosures?

I am getting too old to be lugging around 90 lb subs anymore :)
Asked by: Gary7748
The Dayton would be better suited for this enclosure. This will play down to around 50 Hz.

Can the carpet be taken off with out to much trouble?

Asked by: amped
The carpet on these cabinets is applied with spray-type adhesive. It is not meant to be easily removed, however, your definition of "too much trouble" could vary significantly from mine.
