View Full Version : having a box built today, quick question

06-21-2006, 01:18 PM
Found a new, very knowledgable sound shop in town, who since talking to them 3 weeks ago, has opened up their garage, and is now building boxes.

I'm heading over there today after work, gotta go make a pickup in 'Bolivar' ohio???? :crying:

But here's my plans so far.

2 2006 Kicker L7 15's.

4.5 Net each driver.

Tuned to 33hz.... rather than 42hz on my last box (yuck)

Subs firing UP!!! Old box was toward the back, and was real close to the hatch, and vibrated like a mofo.

Wanted to get some opinions about which direction to fire the ports..... Up? Toward the rear? Toward the front isn't an option, unobstructed seating capacity is a definite priority with this box, don't want to have to fold my rear seats down for maximum performance.

So which way should i fire the port?

I made a poll, so you don't have to do a full response.

Car is an audi a6 stationwagon, so i would imagine what sounds good in an SUV will sound good in my car.

Subs up, port back...

will the ports toward the back create as much vibration as the subs did when everything was toward the back?

i mean, it was audible IN the car, even tuned high

Ok, just got home from the shop, we did some measurements, i talked to the guy for half an hour or so, about what i wanted, and this is what he's making:

Both 15's on top firing up, centered on the box, port horizontal along the bottom of the box, facing toward the rear, tuned @ 33hz, net cf 4.0~4.5.....

How'd i do?

sounds like it should wang :up2somet:
How much is he charging you?

$200 even.

It's $40 more than my last one, but that place went out of business. That, and this guy at least seems like he knows what he's doing, and is gonna have it done friday.

I can't wait.
