    dumb sub question

    i have an old 8" alpine sub and i'm making a little box for it in order to give my stereo a bit of extra sound. the sub can be free-air or enclosed from what i recall.

    is a 12" x 12" (6-7" deep) box big enough for it? should it be ported? and lastly, do i need to stuff any insulation or anything inside of it?

    thanks!

    if you still have the manual for it, you can check that, but for an 8" alpine... half a cube should be just fine... and whether it be ported or not is a personal decision, personally I would just keep its a sealed box, no stuffing....
