    Default Should I have an airhole........

    Do I need an airhole in my sub box so it doesn't over-heat or anything?

    What type of sub do you have? Give us some specifics here...

    Typically I would not alter the design of any manufactured part without a thorough understanding of what your trying to do.

    The airhole is not for cooling and its dimensions are designed for a certain amout of airflow. My subs are designed to actually allow the user to change the airflow and there are manufacturer guidlines in accomplishing this. Outside of that I would reccomend leaving "well enough alone".

    Well, I have to subs and one of them is in a big hefty cardboard box! Lol yes very cheap but it pounds. The other is in a real box. For the cardboard one do I need the hole?

    Shoot I don''t have my camera hear. Ok, try to envision this. There are handles on the sides right? covered one of them, and cut open the other prolly around 2 inches. Is it too big or do I need to cover it up to get more boom?

    This isn't mine, but it kinda looks like this. Letters are green, and imagine it older and used. http://www.strathfield.com/images/Si...um/TSW306C.jpg

    Plus I ahve a problem with the Pioneer. It makes like a cracking, popping sound instead of bass. I am taking my amplifier back in like 30 minutes and getting a better one. I don't know what could be causing that sound though......

    if your sub has a hole.. don't plug it..

    if your sub doesnt' have a hole.. don't make one.

    It isn't the sub. It is the sub box.
