wtk about bass processors

Postby basstard » February 7th, 2016, 1:04 am

Good day tuners, i want to get some information on bass processors and subwoofer enclosure. Do i need a special type of sub enclosure if i am using a bass processor (like an audio control epicenter with a 33hz chip). I have heard some people say u need a bigger subwoofer enclosure to work with an epicenter. FYI i only have the mono-block amplifier (powerbass asa3 1500.1) and a clarion pre amp.

Its said a bigger box is needed because bigger boxes tend to have better low frequency response but increases the sensitivity and can cause the sub to unload very easy if you don't know what you doing.

thanks for this bit of information, and how much bigger the enclosure will have to be for a single 12" (0.4cuft or more)?

I'd recommend you use a normal box instead of one where you stand a better chance of mechanical damage due to over excursion.

If you've selected a good sub for your application and the enclosure is built correctly you should not need a bass processor.

choose some subs that are designed to be comfortable playing d lows & not like d high wattage spl stiff spider subs which even though may play some lows will not sound as smooth

& yes d ultra lows will require a decent size box ...
