First off, My SX has a misaligned coil, Do I HAVE to send it back to RE or is that something a local shop could fix?

I have plans for a 11 cube box NET tuned to 38. What do you think about that idea? I listen to only rap..

I could tune lower, the box i have now for my 15 is tuned to 32. I like it but i want louder and rap seems like a good genre to tune that high to..

Isn't that just a little large of an enclosure?

I wouldn't run it in 11 cube ported bro, it will perform just fine in 6.5-7.

edit- please tell me you won't be running this setup with 5 gauge walmart wire.........

I was thinking that box would be good with a lower tuning. But i kinda wanna try a higher tuning for once, and i like big boxes :)

EDIT: The box in my avator is 8 cubes gross sealed and I need new wiring ;)

EDIT again: Maybe I'll just port the box in avator, BUT, that box is NOT air tight. It's got some pretty big gaps that I tried to fill with silicon... Do you think liquid nails would work best to fill the gaps tightly? I'm talking near 1/4" in one spot....

EDITx3: Home depot cuts FTW!

Is that 8 cubes sealed? I just don't know how you would be able to get anything bigger in there. I would just go 6.5 ported or just leave it in 8 cubes sealed.

The 8 cubes sealed is a joke for SPL... The 15 shits on it, Real bad.

BOLD: The backseats fold down :up2somet:

I would doubt that it would get **** on from that 15 in the proper sealed enclosure.

LOL you guys are right, the sealed box is far from proper. But the misaligned coil could be the problem too ;) Speaking of that. I needa see if i can get that fixed locally...
