ha ha ha, jus the kind of thread i was gonna start today...

I bought a new Nokia 3250, which has a application called "SounMeter" in it. Althought the application claims that it not ment for professional use because slight differences will occur if tested using a actual device..

As far as L_B_M's post no 6 of this thread goes. I tried and the results given by the application were very very similar.

Next, i took my car to a quite place to do a db test. I started playing the Glassy track by HardKaur.. I pupmed up the volume and even before the bass could start, the application started showing the reading of 114 db. The application does not read dbs above 114. So the it simple flashed ">114"..

Now i am guessing how much dbs does my system produce?

It was a readymade Box with the installer, It is slightly inclined at I suppose at around 30-45 deg something like this, just that its placed horizontal than vertical(i.e. the sub is facing up & towards front) & the ports(2 ports) are not like those in pic but are next to the Sub but on the same plain slightly lower near the corners, each of around ~2.5-2 inch dia



Will try to take picture from my cell at lunch time & post

Please wear ear plugs (they reduce SPL by as much as 25-30db) when testing your system.

man this is no ported box but it looks like a ported box ...I would say close the holes but putting some thing on the top of it....then it will sound better....one more thing try facing the sub the boot door it will also help a lot....this is for the sounding...the max spl you must be achiving would be nearly 120-125 db....this is a estimate figure not a correct one....

Thanks guys

Btw why do you say its not ported? I mean how do you define ports & why do these holes dont qualify as one ?

Hmm will change the facing and also put my old socks to use

Btw normally i listen to 50-60% of max volume level(The max is 62 & when I am blasting its at 35 or in some case 40, normallly between 25-30) So I belive that should approx be within 90db what say ?

Let's start with, a 12" sub needs a port diameter of atleast 3-4" to atleast function as a port. Otherwise, the port contribution is too little. Secondly, it seems very unlikely, that the installer would have designed the box and the ports based on the sub's specs. Looks like a one-size-fits-all kinda box. And I don't know for sure, but does Sony even provide the T-S parameters with their basic subs? Maybe they do, just curious.
