Comparing Subwoofer Boxes: Manufacturer & Prefab Enclosures
Learn more about the differences between prefab subwoofer enclosures and
boxes built by the manufacturer. In this video we show the differences in
build quality, as well as sound quality (specifically SPL). Using our demo
car and a Termlab SPL meter, we show your the SPL ratings for a Kicker CVX
in a generic ported box and a manufacturer built/loaded box.
While the SPL difference was only about 1 dB difference, there was a
difference in the sound quality/clarity that was difficult for the
microphones to pick up.
The SPL results of this experiment are not as dramatic as they would be
with other brands, as Kicker subs are designed to maintain consistent
performance in a wide variety of enclosure designs. However, the difference
in sound quality between the enclosures was dramatic.
Prefab Box = Great for keeping the costs down.
Manfufacturer Box = Gets the most out of the woofer.

How to wire up a Dual Voice Coil (DVC) Sub Woofer
Demonstration video showing how to wire up a Dual Voice Coil sub woofer,
each voice coil is rated at 4 OHMs.
This is a very basic video when it comes to wiring up a DVC sub woofer. I

coil subject, since a lot of people are misguided about these products and
some people get a little bit lost when it comes to actually wiring the
