33.5 Length "Left to Right Side"
15.5 Tall "Height"
16 Wide "Front to Back"


Ok guys,

I have that much room above. I wanted to get the re spec box listed on the website but looks like I won't be able to with the 15" XXX. RE SPEC " 4 cuft ported 27hz tunning"

33.5 Length "Left to Right Side"
15.5 Tall "Height"
16 Wide "Front to Back"

anyways what you guys think about the above spec will it be good for a ported box or I should go sealed.. :eek:

if you haven't gussed it I am confused as hell :crap:

pictures to the civic's trunk. I want the box to sit under the trunk cover because I live in an apartment so I wanna be able to hide it at night.

you can fit it in ported :) but not 4 cubes..

EDIT: 2.9 cubes is about all you could get after driver displacement :/

what amp(s) are you using?

Port it up I say

bcarpenterfhl
06-22-2005, 12:00 AM
if he ported he'd get a volume of something like 2.5 cF or smaller after displacement. RE suggests 4 cF.

bossman032
06-22-2005, 12:08 AM
what amp(s) are you using?

I would be using the MB Quarts.
MB Quart Reference RAA1000
1000 watts RMS x 1 at 1 ohm

if that is not enough I will push it with a Orion 2500d a modded 1501d mtx.
I plan to upgrade to bigger amp anyways. The MB is temp amp. :eyebrow:

with a 1000 odd watts, it might be a bit small...different story if you ran a 2500d..

What do you guys think about a 3cf (after port/sub disp.) with 3 4" aero ports tuned to about 32-34? I think he can fit that... I've done similar with very good results with an SX... just wondering what you guys think...

I have decided to go with Power Acoustik A3000DB after I sell the MB Quarts amp later on the line.
2300 Watts RMS Into A 1 Ohm Load.

while keeping the gain down. also tuning would be 30-32 hz.

a better question is whether he will be able to get the box through
the trunk opening...

nice build man. and some **** plans you have there. like i told you when i added the reinforced baffle, the volume slightly decreased, and the tuning slightly increased. IIRC, somewhere around ~3.91 cF @ ~32.5 Hz.

bcarpenterfhl
07-05-2005, 03:31 PM
but wait man, when you told me to design the box with the port on top of the box, and you put it on the front of the box. your port area may have drasticly changed, affecting the volume and tuning...

also, hows the clearance from the sub to the roof of your trunk?

umm the plans changed that didn't fit the civic.
so I put it in the caddy.

umm we didn't put the extra baffle. the front is just 3/4 I am going to put another 29 1/4 on front. and we decreased the height by 19" because 20" was to tall!!

but anyways let me know where is the cac now.. :veryhapp:

I love the XXX it has great SPL on some of my songs.

The SPL is so bad that it sets of alarms 5 block away!!!!
My parents were tripping because it was shacking the house so bad exact words "what kind of music is that shacking the house making people think its an earthquake" they were pissed off!!!!!

That was 25 mins of *****ing I was like wtf I didn't know it was that loud!!! haha

so XXX is a great woofer has major power and with the right setup it will put the jl w7 13.5 to shame!!!

so an update from the 05 15" XXX vs the 06 12" XXX.

the 06 is just one ****** woofer. Its so much better then the older 05 15" xxx.

it hits lows like no other woofer. the sql is crazy from this 06. I am going to take it easy for a few days then push it. I smell the glue burning off since the woofer is new but within the next few days I will get a video up.

picture of box and woofer soon stay tunned.

hmm not sure what you mean. my older xxx smelled with the MTX 1501D, but it never gave me any problems. cheap amp I paid 320 and I am quite happy with its performance. the 06 XXX is one bad woofer. like I said my woofer is brand new might need some TLC but I highly doudt it. 06 XXX FTW!!! :p:
