What is a loaded speaker enclosure?
A loudspeaker enclosure or loudspeaker cabinet is an enclosure (often rectangular box-shaped) in which speaker drivers (e.g., loudspeakers and tweeters) and associated electronic hardware, such as crossover circuits and, in some cases, power amplifiers, are mounted.
Do you need an amp for a loaded subwoofer?
Subwoofers are designed to increase the bass frequencies, resulting in a deep, thumping sound. In most cases, they are paired with an amplifier to boost the sound. If you do not have the funds for both components, you can still hook up a subwoofer without an amplifier; it simply involves a little more know-how.
Does the shape of a speaker box matter?
I’ve heard mentioned that you should try to include at least one angle in the design to eliminate the possibility of standing waves inside the enclosure, but the general consensus around here is that the shape doesn’t matter.
Do ported sub boxes hit harder?
Ported boxes use a vent (called a port) to reinforce low bass response. You get more output than you would from a sealed box at any given amplifier wattage. Ported boxes can deliver deeper bass than sealed boxes, though they need to be much larger than sealed enclosures to accomplish that.
Are bigger ported boxes better?
Too large a box allows the driver to exceed its’ mechanical limitations. Regardless if you believe it sounds “louder” or “better” it’s just not wise to do so. Buy a bigger sub. a bigger box makes it louder at a note just above the tunning hz.
Does polyfill really work in sub boxes?
Using polyfill in an effort to absorb standing waves or various distortion is most effective in large enclosures for your midrange and is not particularly effective for a subwoofer.

These boxes are designed to save you time and space. If you already have an amplifier installed and looking to upgrade your subs for more bass, you can simply replace what you have with one of our pre-loaded boxes.
