you should go 2.5 ft3 for each sub if you have the space.

can you find a box plan with dimentions for 2.5 cubes per sub?

would 5 cubes tuned to 34 be a good match for 2 12 inch type r's?

measure twice/more, cut once, make sure you have the right measurements or itll turn out like crap.

it would be very good, how many watts do you plan on feeding them?

bang hard
04-16-2006, 04:59 PM
900 rms @ 2ohm's
so they would be getting 450 each

i have them in a huge box now, its one of my friends i dont know the cubes or what its tuned to but ints in my back seat b/c it wont fit in my trunk and it hits so hard, if i turn it up half way i cant see if i drive! my ears hurt so bad after like 5 min. lol i'll get a pic

why at 2 ohms, is your amp not stable at 1? and 450 each is lower than their rms and they have been know to be able to handle 1000watts + each, so i would go at least 500 or 600 watts. and im guessing your subs are dual 2 ohm?

it would need to be stable at .5ohm not 1ohm....

bang hard

yes they are dual 2 ohm. i dont have the money for a bigger amp yet but thats whats next on the list. that pic is in my gallery if you want to see.

What kind of car is this going in? If it was me I would just run one of them in the proper enclosure off of that amp.

Everythings perfect accept the power, 450rms a piece isnt anything.

Everything is perfect Mike, and everything will be perfect after he builds this box. Then he's going to try to fit a 5 cube box through the trunk of a GP and go FUJDS<:emb:

Yeah the enclosure and everything is great, he just won't get near the performance out of them as he would if he was giving them a lot more power.

edit- If the box won't fit in the trunk opening then think about making two separate boxes, that way you can slide each in separately.

UNless you have 5ft in your trunk, i would just put that amp on one sub@ 1 ohm with a 2.7ft box and make sure theres no cancellation in your trunk.
