Well i was looking for a sub to use in a small enclosure. I just bought a sub down the coast at a cash converters. I didn't think it was a free air sub.... but turns out it is when i checked the model number. (it's a pioneer TS-W304F, So thats what the F means................... :oops: ) Can they be used in enclosures still? will they sound crap? Should i beat myself in the head with a crowbar?

1: beat yourself over the head with a crowbar
2: yes, its freeair
3: beat yourself over the head with a crowbar
4: yes, you can use it in a box, the larger the better, but dont expect it to sound all that great
5: beat yourself over the head with a crowbar
6: how much did you spend on it?
7: beat yourself over the head with a crowbar

anyway what is a good sub for enclosure use heh. I'm not looking for huge amounts of power, but i want it to be able to handle a wide range of music and in particular death metal and speed metal. And would prefer boomier bass then thuddy. Anyway any help would be great, because obviously i know nothing about subs

I built an enclosure for a friends free air 12" Pioneer and it worked pretty well.

Somewhere here i have all the specs on the Pioneer subs ever built.

I'll check the specs and let you know what size enclosure suits.

couple of years back when i was looking through Pioneer's T/S sheets, i think they said the IB/freeair subs were built for an approximate box size of 150L.....

ive got a a TSW-254F. i knew it was free-air so i just put an MDF board across the back of the seat covered it with some black carpet and done. Sounds good for its size but not very clear in the low ranges. but still kicks when its got the right beat going.


here is a pic
