So i had an old Cerwin Vega 10" powered sub for the last 19 years i uss it to watch movies in my living room. Amp smoked a couple weeks ago and i have set off on looking for a replacement. With cost of new powered subs being so high I have decided to use what i have here. All i would have to purchase is the MDF. Fairly cheap if it will work.

This is going in a room 24x17x17, very high ceilings. I have a 2 channel 150 watt amp. I am planning on using 2 Rockford Fosgate RFZ 3812 12" speakers. Currently using this setup in 2.2cuft sealed box. its a bit boomy in the high end and drops quickly. Speakers and the amp are out of old system. I have modeled boxes in Box Pro and Winisd. Looking at around 6cuft box 19-20hz tuning. Cone excursion goes out the window. I can reduce the box to 3-4 cuft. All kind of blurs together after a while. Looking for a sanity check. Is it even worth building a box for these speakers? If i can get by with the box for now in 6cuft plan is to replace the speakers with some 15" down the road, when/if these speakers give out.

MDF - the most normal option. You can also use the leftover laminate or buy, or maybe ask for free in the warehouse. It will be very stylish.
