i got 2 06' 12" L7's i want to have HARD DEEP BASS that you can feel it in your chest when it hits. what should i tune my box to and how big should i make it . ill be running them at 1ohm off a PowerAcoustik 3000db. also theses will be in a camaro. Sq is not a factor at all i want some crazy bass thats hurts when ur in the car .:crazy:

a camaro....? wow, good luck.....

i would say a huge box and tune low, at least 30hz, that should get you those low lows and hit ya hard in the chest.

yea big box tuned low, but idont think you'll fit too much ina camaro, but what do i know, i own a truck..

Yeah dude.
I used to have a 98 camaro and the trunk space is really limited :crap:
Unless you are willing to remove the back seat:naughty:

A friend of mine removed his back seat.. diff reason though.. Kept the box in the trunk...

since "sq is not a factor" he could be able to tune it up to 35hz, to "feel" the low rumble and deafen himself with the higher freq's

yea im probaly going to use the backseat area cause the backseat folds down. so i should tune low to get the bass you can really feel?

35hz is a happy medium...

and with around 1500 watts and a port thats 54 in^2 or bigger, you'll even be able to feel the high notes...

2 Kicker Solo X 12"
4-8 kicker 2500 amps
as big a box as possible tune in the low to mid 30's

You shouldn't go for low deep bass with L7s man. I've tried and it's a no go. L7s are geared for higher, SPL application. I mean, you could try aiming your system toward low end with L7s, but the L7s will shine much brighter in a higher tuned application. If you want Lows from L7s, the 15s are known to get you there.

i have yet to hear the 12, or 10 in a vehicle, but the 15(which i own) gets loww, its in 6cubes at 30hz

thatkidbob so you have L7s tuned to 35hz and sounds pretty good ?i'll put it like this...

right now i've only got ~350 watts and one L7 (somehow the other one blew with no signal conencted :crap: )

hair on the back of my neck is moving.

i can feel that dangly thing in the back of my throat moving on certain notes.

i feel it lol...

My L7's are in 2.75 cubes per sub. They hit very low and hard. When the kick drum hits you feel it in your throat and chest. Very cool feeling. Heavy Metal Baby!!!
