WELCOME
SUBWOOFER ENCLOSURES, GENERAL
Thank you for buying a DLS ULTIMATE subwoofer.
The subwoofer must be installed correctly in order to work well.
This manual will show you how to install it like a pro. Please
read the entire manual before beginning the installation.
Install the subwoofer yourself if you feel confident with our
instructions and if you have the proper tools. However if you
feel unsure, turn over the installation job to someone better
suited to it.
The speakers are designed for enclosure mounting. In "open
air" installations the power handling capacity is reduced by 30%
from the nominal value. We dont recommend ”open air”
installations for Ultimate subwooers.
Build your enclosure in a stable and airtight material. The best
is MDF-board, 19 mm, or particle board, 22 mm. Larger
enclosures must have bracing inside to avoid vibrations. The
enclosure must be completely airtight. Use sealing compound
in all joints, also around the cable terminals. The size of the
enclosure is decided by the speaker data.
CONNECTION OF SUBWOOFER
How to connect depends on what type of amplifier you use.
The best is to follow the instructions given in the manual for the
amplifier. Most amplifiers today have built-in lowpass crossover
and possibilities to connect your subwoofer in bridge mode.
Two 4 ohm subwoofers are often connected in stereo mode
since most amplifiers can´t handle bridge mode loads below 4
ohms.
The UR10, 12 & 15 have dual, four ohm, voice coils. Each voice
coil has an impedance of 4 ohms. If they are connected in series
the resulting impedance is 8 ohms. If they are connected in
parallel the resulting impedance is 2 ohms. Make sure to connect
in a way that don´t ruin the amplifier. If you have a DLS Ultimate
amplifier it´s possible to connect the voice coils in parallel, these
ampliers are 1 ohm stable.
SP12 and 15 have dual, two ohm, voice coils which should be
considered when you connect them.
We also recommend the use of a subsonic highpass filter. This
gives a better bass reproduction with less "rumble". In most
DLS amplifiers this feature is already built-in.
For wiring use high class speaker wires, min AWG13 (2.5 mm2).
For example DLS SC 2x2,5.
If you have an amplifier without built-in crossover you must use
a passive crossover between amplifier and subwoofer like in
this example, one crossover for each voice coil.
Component values are for 4 ohms.
SEALED ENCLOSURES
Sealed enclosures are easy to build. The size is not critical, but
it can´t be too small. The speaker data such as Fs, Qts, Vas
and X-max decides the size of the enclosure.
Large speakers need larger boxes. Two speakers need a box
of the double size etc. The enclosure must be completely airtight.
A sealed enclosure should be filled with acoustic wool up to 75
- 100%.
A sealed enclosure has a lower efficiency than vented
enclosures but they can handle high power and are easy to
build.
A subwoofer in a sealed enclosure creates a tight bass suitable
for the audiophiles listening to classical music, jazz and soft
rock. All the Reference subwoofers are recommended NOT to
use in sealed enclosures.

VENTED ENCLOSURES
A speaker in a vented enclosure has a higher efficiency (3 dB)
and higher power handling capacity than in a sealed enclosure.
In a vented enclosure the sound from the speaker and the port
work together creating a higher sound level. The sound from
the port must come out in the same phase as from the speaker
otherwise the result is bad.
The size of the vented enclosure is decided by the speaker
data just as for the sealed one.
The size of the vehicle often decides the practical size of the
enclosure. A smaller enclosure has a higher resonant frequency
than the larger one. The size of the enclosure should not be so
big that the speaker plays below it´s own free air resonance
(Fs), then it looses in power handling capacity.
The port does not have to be fully inside the enclosure as long
as the area and length are correct. Sometimes you need two or
more ports in an enclosure. You can convert from one to two or
more ports as long as the total port area is the same.
All DLS subwoofers works well in vented boxes.
BANDPASS ENCLOSURES
In all bandpass enclosures the speakers are hidden inside the
enclosure, all sound is coming out through the ports. There are
different types of bandpass enclosures and they have in common that they are a bit more difficult to build. Most DLS
subwoofers can be used in bandpass enclosures.
IMPORTANT!
Connection in mono bridge mode with an active x-over. Voice
coils connected in series. If you have a 1 ohm stable amplifier
the voice coils should be connected in parallel for best
performance (for example on a DLS monoblock).
The speaker cones of UR10,12 & 15 are made of magnesium,
a material of low weight with excellent acoustic qualitys.
We recommend you NEVER to touch the cone body with you
fingers. Remaining deformation of the cone body will occour if
you push it with your fingers.
Also think of the speaker weight when you mount it. If you don´t
mount it properly it can get loose.

The enclosure examples can be used only for the reproduction of normal
music. If you want to use these subwoofers for SPL competition, which
they are designed for, the design of an enclosure is more complicated.
The vehicle must be modified in many ways and the enclosure must be
individually designed for each vehicle type and also for the different
competition classes.
You are welcome to contact DLS for advices.

HINTS & TIPS FOR ”DO IT YOURSELF” ENCLOSURE BUILDERS
ABOUT THE RECOMMENDED ENCLOSURES
The performance of these recommended enclosures will vay
from vehicle to vehicle. It is more difficult to get a tight and well
defined bass in a SEDAN vehicle because of the tightness
between trunk and interior of the vehicle. In this case a bandpass box could be a better choise.
- All volumes are inside measures.
- Volumes occupied by speaker and ports have already been
added to the given enclosure volumes.
- Use conical bass ports for best result. (DLS BP-75 or BP110). If the ports are too long for the box you can use a bend.
Either cut the tube and glue it together in angle, or use factory
made tube bends. It´s easier to use the factory made ones. The
total length must be the same as for a straight tube. Make the
measure in the center of the tube.
The port opening inside the enclosure must not be closer to an
interior wall than 3” (75 mm), otherwise it will have negative
effects on the airflow.
- The enclosure must be very steady and completely air-tight.
Use 22 mm particle board or 19 mm MDF-board. The particle
board has a self resonant frequency of 14 Hz while the MDF
has a resonant frequency of approx. 400 Hz. It´s important to
do some type of bracing inside the enclosure to avoid vibrations.
Volume taken up by bracing should be added to the enclosure
volumes.
Most enclosures should be damped inside with syntetic
(acoustic) wool or damping mat (line). Attach the damping material on the wall opposite from the speaker and port. A sealed
enclosure should be filled up to 70-100% with acoustic wool.
In a vented enclosure the speaker and port should be on the
same side, otherwise a fade-out of some frequencies can occour.
In most vehicles, except for SEDAN cars, the speaker and port
should be directed backwards for best result.

1
In large vehicles like station wagons the best sound is achieved
with the enclosure installed behind the rear seat with booth speaker and port directed backwards. Alternatively you can install
the enclosure on one side of the luggage compartment.
CALCULATE YOUR ENCLOSURE
Box volumes:
When caculating the volume of an enclosure you simply multiply
the width (W) x heigth (H) x depth (D).
Use measures in dm and you will get the answer in liters.
A trapezoid box is calulated as below:
Vol=width (W) x heigth (H) x upper depth (UD) + lower depth (LD)
2
W
UD
Be sure to measure the
inside dimensions.
LD

magnet
In sedan vehicles with the passenger compartment separated
from the trunk, the enclosure should be installed with booth
speaker and port directed towards the rear seat. Some cars
have an opening in the middle of the rear seat for loading skis
etc. You can install the enclosure behind this opening and direct
speaker or port through this opening. There must be some free
space in front of the port, (between the rear seat and the port
opening).

In small vehicles like VW Golf, Peugeot 306 and similar the
bass box should be installed with both speaker and port directed
backwards. Alternatively booth speaker and port can be directed
upwards. This way of mounting is valid for all types of vehicles
where the trunk is incorporated with the inner compartment.
