Buying the Right Subwoofer Enclosure

How-To Guide

To ensure the proper fit of your subwoofer, consider your subwoofer requirements vs. the features of the enclosure.

Subwoofer cut-out dimensions

Not all subwoofers require the same size opening; for example, the JL W7 Series cut-out requires a different size opening from the standard. Our enclosures come with round standard size openings;

  • 8” – 7 1/8”
  • 10” – 9 1/8”
  • 12 – 11 1/8”
  • 15” – 13 7/8”

**Custom openings are available for an up-charge

Subwoofer Mounting Depth

Before ordering, check the mounting depth requirements for the speakers you are using. You don’t want to order an enclosure for your subwoofers that do not have enough mounting depth.

Subwoofers Air space Requirements

Recommended enclosure volume (air space) varies considerably among subwoofers of the same size, you can check the manufacturers’ websites to find your subwoofer air space requirements and compare with the one of the enclosure.
