A pair of Eminence Lab 12 (6 ohm nominal) would be 3 ohm in parallel, handle 800 watts without exceeding Xmax.

The design may end up fairly flat in a corner or by a wall.
If you raise the Fb to 36 Hz, the F3 is 31 Hz and response very flat.

I don't know what the TS specifications for the speaker are, so can't say if it would work.
There are other car audio sub drivers with similar TS parameters to the Lab 12, which would work.

Hi, Using the Pioneer TS-W3002D4 car driver: Would IMO be a challenge to fold, but could if seriously worked(not screwing the shown CSA:s) out to be a very good T-TQWT performer if not driven to hard:

mm then what should have as amp?
I have these to test with:
590W 8R load amp
"could I use dual driver for them then the driven power is not so hard to handle?"
1200W 4R load amp
"for this one do you suggest one driver that handle 80% of the power load"
2200W 4R load amp
"4x driver in stereo mod is this good enough?"
all amp I already make them from chip amp class A/B with filters special to output sub driver.
for the remain part car driver I think just an idea, but when get back to previous one what I could use as home powerful 12inch driver?
I just have these available now:
-Sony - XS-LD126P5B
-JBL GT5-12D
-JBL W3v3
-Pioneer TS-W1208D4
-Sony xsl126p5b
-Pioneer TS-W1208D2
-Kenwood KFC W3012
-Sony XS L126P5 Xplod
-Clarion SW1251
what do you think from previous is best fit for home use?
sorry for the amount of information I provide I know its little but that is the reason I ask more to make sure I have good one from the available.
another thing do I need to make sealed one or its depend on the driver I use?

Just asking, but you have heard of mail order?
You can get anything from all over the world... just a thought.

And, there is no "best" driver, it all depends on your room and how you use it... best read up
on enclosure types and look at what other people have done - then maybe copy a design that is already built that you like and you know works?

well if I have the ability to get the shipment as mail I'll never ask again for help
anyway it because I can't have this shipment to Syria here I can't pay with credit if you don't know that I'm telling you right now
for the enclosure types I can buy one but I consider to build one myself cause I'll enjoy to listen to them as they're live, and add I want to learn how to build one if you don't mind
sure I'll consider this as compliment and wait to hear anything related to the topic here

hi! Hosam i've just designed the vented box for my friend. used 15" driver ,he bought JBL 1500GTi i see the list of the drivers that u posted. a lot of them are difficult to know the parameter. but i only know some parameter. i think i like Clarion SW1251. Hosam MTX T4512.04 & 4512.44 are not expensive and seem good. at about 2009 i ever used the rockfordfosgate P2D412 to installed in closed box. it worked fine. Hosam try to download win isd program,it's free and best to design closed,vented,bp4,bp6 boxes. and u can learn it from this web or another web. u can find the articles "win isd for beginner" from many websites. and this's the pic rockfordfosgate P2D412 that i built for my friend.
