Default Help me with ideas for a dual 10 inch subwoofer box

Long story short I have 2 10 inch Pioneer Car subs Model TS-W255C That I have no use for.

So im looking to have a bit of a play with them and make something cool. Doesnt have to use both, but again would be nice.

Throw out some options, try to keep the box size reasonable.

What do people think would work well with this sub, i mapped out a vented box of 30L to 35hz but that seems a bit boring.

Thanks in advance for the help

maybe you could do a version of the ODougbo isobaric.

Isobaric - less then $20

Hi, Don't think car woofers are candate for an Iso build, they work in small boxes in the 1st place, so probably can't cut that in half. And you want to keep the box reasonable, so the T-TQWT is out.

What about a band-pass?

Can you post the specs?

Another option if you are into electronics it to put them in very small sealed boxes and then run the signal through either a linkwitz transform or the ESP Electronically Assisted Subwoofer (EAS) circuit. I actually run 2 low profile Pioneer 10" subs in this way in a small apartment. The low bass they achieve is uncanny.

Sub-Woofer Controller

or if you can afford the PCB:

P48 Sub-Woofer Controller (Rev-A)

I tried to model the sub/subs in a bandpass design but it didnt look pretty.

These are the only specs i could find

They were from Pioneer TS-W255C 10" 4-ohm Component Subwoofer - Features & Specs at Crutchfield.com
I will say that a folding horn sub does intrigue me a lot.
Im no expert, in fact i am a box design virgin, this will be the first box i make of sorta my own design. The others I have made have been manufactures specs for car subs.

Put them magnet-to-magnet in a small as possible box. Add some serious low-end boost. Tiny box, big sound. (lots of power needed)

Not sure what this means, are you referring to using a controller as refrenced above.

Pioneer suggests 1 ft^3 sealed. Data here

I'd mount the pair push-push in a 2 ft^3 box.

How about a folded horn box ?
They are very efficient and give out loads of bass.
They dont have to be huge.

Folded horns are tempting, just unsure where to start with a design.

What would push-push do exactly for them that a side by side mounting wouldn't?
