When Steve says moving the baffle board back it will increase the Q of the box to over 1.0 (boom boom.... what exactly does this mean... it will make it loader or noisier or what...? any responses welcome, Thanks Guys

DannyD,

Welcome to the forums!  

The bass response of a cabinet is considered flat when the "q" is at 0.7

As the "q" increases the bass response becomes peaked and the bandwidth becomes narrower.  You trade low bass for louder high bass, often creating a boomy sounding one note box.

Steve

Hey Steve,
my friends wants me to build him a wicked one for 2 twelves, other than making the box taller is there anything else i would need to do?
and another question is making the box 36x36 rather than 24x36 make it a lot better?

I have to tell you that I have never made a 24x36 WO, but I HAVE constructed one that was 28x36.

For the application, using old beat-up 12" square Kicker drivers, the WO exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds.

But, even allowing for the increased power available to us, from using Kickers, my classically constructed barrage of dual ten inch driven, 36x36 inch WOs were a bit better in each case, in solid low end and flatness, especially with some EQ and a low crossover point.

It all depends upon what you want to achieve. If you are a fan of higher quality, more "close to flat" response (within reason, that is), then follow the instructions, make clean cuts and solid joints, build a strong enclosure out of good materials and enjoy the results.
