Hello everyone,

I put a very small speaker setup in the bedroom for the Misses while she watches Hulu and what not. I have a low end Denon receiver and some fairly cheap polk towers for the front. I have an Audiopulse Revo 10" that I actually ran in my car a few years ago. When I put this sub in my car I spoke with Thilo from Audiopulse about the box and he had said it required a very, very small sealed box.

What would you guys recommend now that it is going into a bedroom? It doesn't need to sound spectacular, just hopefully to provide a little low end to go with the towers.

Here is a link to the sub:

The Denon has Audyssey so I was hoping so just amp it with a little crown or behringer, run the audyssey, and be good to go.

So... what box? Smaller the better! Thanks in advance!

If you want something simple and small then you can go sealed, 1 cuft with 1000w.

 

This driver doesn't do too well in a ported enclosure because it wants something real small. The problem with that is the port length becomes real long. Its possible if you want to go that route.

You can keep the port length to 2-3 feet in a 2-3 cu ft ported box and attenuate the resultant bump in the lower frequencies with either a highpass filter above the tuning or some eq. I'm not entirely sure what the trade offs of that approach are but it will still give a decent boost over sealed around the tuning.
It depends on what frequency range you are looking for?

I didn't have high hopes of having a super flat frequency response down very far... I think 2-3 cubic feet will be too big to get approval too frown.gif I guess I could save some time and pick up a flat pack for a sealed box!
