Well, Get me some dimensions with some type of illistration, pics maybe... of where you want the box. Then I'll see if you have enough room to make a ported SPL box.

How deep can you go?Definently get pics, but make sure that box will fit in your trunk opening.

Will it be just a fart box, or will this play some music? I charge $45 + materials and shipping.

Anything else to know? Yeah, know that you shouldn't buy it. Get a custom enclosure, it will pay for itself (you won't have to keep buying different boxes to get louder).

Ported 15 = 120 shipped.

bimma is the biggest douche on this board, period. I have explained myself about that box many times, plus it was for a 13W7. I have a thread of a box I built somewhere on here, the box in my sig I built, and I will be posting a thread of a box I am building now for another member of the the forum. By the way Bimma, where is a box you have built?

TheSpeakerMan

No pics of any...soon as I get around to it, I'll let ya see it :D. A pic of the assembly is what matters...not a pic of a **** carpeted box, that doesnt mean ****!. Also remember...I'm not trying to get people to spend money on my builds ;).

You want some respect? You want me to leave you alone when you try to sell your crap boxes? Show us some real pictures of some quality work...not pics of you carpeting skills ;).

Biggest douche on the board? To you...maybe :)

I dont care if i like it cuz i will like anything that has a little bump i just want a box that makes my sub sound the way it is spose to but i dont know wut it is spose to sound like i may have 2 high expectations of how hard it will bump or 2 low expectations of how it will bump.

Bimma, I'm going to give ya + rep here in a min.

12w7, just drop your argument against bimma.Honestly, I doubt you have any idea about what happens to the box when you actually drop it in a car, or any techniques you can use to get vehicles louder ;)

Give me your zip, state carpeted or not, terminal or bare wire and I'll give you a quote.

Edit: WTF happened to the rep system? lol.Worked before I left and I haven't tried it since I came back until now.

Yes, I am sorry I am not as smart as you harvard grads who took four years of schooling to figure out how to build a box and the best placment. 99.9% is commen sence. You obvouisly don't have enough common sence or knowledge to realize the rep system is gone. But you are a ****ing genuis when it comes to sub box making

99.9% is common sense? LOL.Don't make me laugh kiddo.If that's true.....one box would not be louder or quieter vs. another.There is a lot more than just making a port so big and long.

Sorry I don't have every breathing moment to spend on this forum going around trying to neg. people :rolleyes:

Many factors....including box ;)

But it "should" be anywhere from 140- mid 140's.

TheSpeakerMan
04-06-2006, 12:39 AM
it would be really tite. I measured earlier and it was like 16 1 time and 17 another. But i dont have my donut in that space. So i just measured on the side of it where it is level with the board when the donut is in there. So it could be like 17 1/2 16 any where around there. But 2 bimma why would i sell my 15 and get a 12 i want the most bang for my buck!!!

Why sell the 15? The 12 wouldnt be near as loud. And i would want 2 12's if i did get and the 06 models is like 400 pair. I can get 1 15 for 250 and sound just as hard and i no excatly wut amp to get with 1 15. I cant find a good reliable amp for the 2 12's.

Honestly I havent really checked out the new ones, but the older ones like a pretty good sized box.

i have 21inch height 18 length and 24 width how big of a box do i need for 1 15 to have a right sized box i aint no genuis when it comes to boxes but i have a 15inch sub and atleast 18 inches in every way to make a box. Plus i did that cubic ft equasion thing and i got 5.25 cubic ft and on the kicker website it said u need something like 3.75. I think i got enough im just sacrificing my donut's.

nah...probably should have though...but anyways they are right...do a single 12" L7....in the right size box it will do just as good as the 15 in a too small box.

I most say your works isnt up there among the best I've seen but the improvement in such a little time has been excellent. I'll definately give ya props for that :D.

wut exactly is tuning?
Tuning and box size will help create the desired sound. For the most part tuning lower will give you a flatter response while tuning higher will give you a lil more spl and more of peak.

U no wut ima get the 1 12"L7 ported only cuz i no wut amp to get. The xtr pro orion amp would be great for the 12"l7 right even tho its bout 250-350 rms higher. ANother ? if i wanted to add later on and get another 12 i could get like a 500rms amp and add 2 and it would work right?
