Lanzar MAX12 12" Subwoofer 4 Ohm
Optimal ported enclosure size for a pair these
I would like to get a pair of these and build an enclosure for them to go into. What would be the size (cubic feet) of a ported enclosure that 2 of the Lanzar MAX12 would sound best in? A big box is fine with me (what size port/tube)?thanks for the help
I have owned 6 of these and I can honestly say that they do NOT like ported boxes. Go with about 1.5 cu ft each sealed or even a little smaller. I have tried them in 2 cu ft each as well as 4 cu ft each with a port and one very large slot ported enclosure and they just don't perform well in any of the above. I have modeled them in box programs as well and nothing really lines up well with a port. You can go with a small box with a big port, but you will be tuning the driver mainly for SPL and the sound quality will be very poor.
