Got this box for my two kicker Solo-baric S15 L7's. I know it could be bigger, but this is my first box, It leaves me room to upgrade later. Dimensions (W x H x D): 40.5" x 17" x 17.5" , Port Tuned to 38Hz, 3/4" MDF.

what I think is that it looks like a prefab and it's tuned way too high. $.02

does look like a typical pre-fab. You could surely get allot more output from those 15's with another enclosure.. but if you just want some sound... it will do that. Could get allot better performance out of them though with a bigger box tuned between 32-38.. which ever suits you the best.

I know it isn't near "show quality" but I needed an enclosure that would be here when my subs got in. And of course with my luck, they sent me the wrong subs on thursday, so UPS has to come pick them up and ship them back on monday. They sent me L5's instead of the L7's I ordered. But I'm not planning on running any competitions with this box. Maybe in another 6 months I'll go with a custom box. I'm just hoping that with the big 3 and a yellow top optima, I won't have any dimming with a KX2500.1 .

so it is a prefab. :p: If anything you should've went w/ a sealed box until you got one custom made...IMO. I've heard someone w/ two 12" L7s in a prefab that looked just like taht and they were just loud... mostly punchy bass.

Not only is it a prefab, it is an Ebay Prefab! :naughty: I know, not the wisest, and not the best for sound, but my dad did kinda spring it upon me and said, "You're Welcome" so I kinda had no say. I was intending on having a custom box made by the guy I'm having install it all. But then all of that happened. (this is where i got it from http://cgi.ebay.com/DUAL-15-PORTED-KICKER-SOLOBARIC-L5-L7-ENCLOSURE-BOX_W0QQitemZ9718283852QQcategoryZ14945QQrdZ1QQcmd ZViewItem)

Port Tuned to 38Hz (Gets LOUD while retaining sound quality!)
I found that funny. I'm also surprised they knew what it was tuned to.

I'm deffinately not expecting to much from this box. Any one want to help give me ideas for a custom box? :D

if you have a huge trunk, I have a plan for. Dual slot port (seperate chamber), 3 cubes per chamber tuned to 32hz.

I have a SuperCab F-150, I have plenty of room to work with as I'm taking out the back seats. I had planned on at least 3 Cubes per sub, until this was thrust upon me.

it all depends what kind of sound hes after...

it also depends what port lenght calculator was to calculate the tuneing... if you were to use winisd and tune it to 38hz it will effectivly play down to about 32 before the driver starts to unload..

Well, this is my first system, so it isn't like I'm going to be too picky, I just want something that will match my setup nicely.

What did I give for what? If you mean for the box I think it was like $110 shipped.

I'm also starting to doubt if the subs will actually fit...

I'm building a box right now for a friend with 2 15" L7s. Not the most graceful design ever but I think it will get the job done. ;)
