Then, does a bigger box make more bass?
A bigger sealed box will give you lower bass than a smaller sealed box but you lose much of the tightness in the bass.
does subwoofer enclosure shape matter? If you get into it deeply, the shape does matter. In fact there is a magic ratio that has been formulated that gives the best case for a particular enclosure side. When you get further in to box design, standing waves all play a part in the final outcome. and shape dones definatley have an effect.
Additionally, what happens if your subwoofer box is too big?
A bigger box will have less overall output; but may have more output at lower frequencies due to it's increased low frequency extension. But, if you go too big, you'll loose both overall output and low frequency output (extension).
How big should my subwoofer box be?
A good rule of thumb is to add at least 2 to 3 inches to the size of the subwoofer. For example, a 10-inch sub should have a front panel at least 12 to 13 inches square. Size the depth of the box to create the volume you require for your box.
