a good ported design will always yield more average output...

specifying the subs might be a good idea, i have a feeling its the Type R's.

Also, don't come on here telling everyone you want to be heard blocks away. It's not healthy.

go with sealed for those subs, and you dont need to make a box just seal them in the cardboard box they came in with tape, that'll be the best for those subs

then buy something good.. even on a budget, you can get better than walmart brand.

those subs aren't even worth box plans.

its not like you can just throw the subs in any box and expect it to be loud... you have to know the limits of the subwoofers, the type of power you'll be feeding them, their optimal airspace, proper tuning... etc etc etc.

would you want to build the box on your own?

and whats bad about being heard blocks away
Other than it makes you a punk loser that irritates everyone for blocks due to your indifference? Other than parents with kids really don't want to have them exposed to jay-z while you roll by at the mall? Other than I don't want to be woken up in the dead of the night when you drive through my suburban neighborhood at 2am? Bass for the purpose of irritating others so you can feel "manly" is retarded, and you are a shithead if you feel otherwise. I have no problems with loud systems, I just think anyone who wants to hear mine will ask & it can be much better appreciated inside the car, rather than blasting sonic thump for blocks.

Isn't it unfortunate to see how badly the public school system has failed so many? Call me grandpa if you wish, but I bet my system is nicer than anything you will ever own, until you grow the fvck up. Could I put a wall-o-woofers in my wife's Element to slam anything loud as hell? sure, but I have risen above irritating others because I am retarded. **** off noob, and use punctuation and grammar, it's a hell of a lot easier to understand what you are saying, I just struggle interpreting shithead into english.

If you have a 3.5 gpa and can't construct a single sentence with any kind of grammar or even general use of the english language, you should indeed come to see me, so I can kick the **** out of you, since your father obviously never did, thus allowing you to turn into a complete douchebag. Stupid kids these days....all mouth with no brain. Sometimes it is a good idea to let the filter between your brain and mouth catch some stuff before you spew it out into the world and erase all doubt in everyone's minds that you are, in fact, a tool.

Ok the reason why that i didnt use any grammer is because im not in school, and i dont care because im not applying for a job sorry everyone. I was just typing quickly, im trying to be nice right now alright pops. so please dont talk about my father ok, this is about making a ported speaker box if you can help thanks if not ill find another way. New pictures of my fist speaker box still coming soon looks really nice.

this was pissing me off so much that i just had to register and post...first of all, there's no way in hell you set off a car alarm 15 houses down...how do i know? my friend has 2 13w7's in his explorer, and he can't set car alarms off that are more than like 20 feet away...unless you're in a condo complex, there's no way in HELL you set a car alarm off 15 houses down. assuming the average frontage is say, 100ish feet in a good suburban neighborhood, thats 1500 feet, more than 1/4 mile, which is rediculous, a **** cruise boat horn wouldnt do that. a car alarm is sensitive, but its not that **** sensitive.

also, if you think you're fitting 2 15" subs in a trunk of a 96 intrepid with a box and everything(especially a ported box) you're in for a surprise...since they definately wont fit under the rear deck and between the wheel wells, it'll have to be near the opening of the trunk where the spare tire well is, and most likely it wont fit, not to mention 80% of the bass will exit the vehicle without HEAVY deadening. the purpose of a high quality car audio system is for me to enjoy it, not other people half a block away. its for me. they didnt pay me for a ticket to my concert, so unless i really like them, they're not hearing it. period.

i think its time to grow up for you...ditch the 15's or go with one. you'd be MUCH happier with a GOOD 12" sql sub.
