    Unhappy Wrong box volume , please help !!

    I just got 2 DX 12's (4 Ohm), and i built my own box. This is my first time building a box and i must say i did a rather bad job, my volume for the box came out to be about 2.2 cu ft. When i hooked them up they didnt sound very good, they only sounded good when i was playing loud deep bass. is there anyway i can save my box? or any good tips and tricks for building a new one?? please help!! thanks!

    The easiest way to reduce the internal volume would be to cut the entire front or back off of the enclosure to obtain the correct
    volume. If you have access to a circular saw that has a fence, this should be a simple process. By doing this you would only need to make one complete cut.
    If this box is a common chamber, then make the internal volume
    1.5 cubic feet.

    Good Luck,
    Kim
