THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT FIBERGLASS, SO IM SURE NOT EVERYTHING IS PERFECT, NOTEABLY THE MESS I MADE, HAHA, BUT I WILL CLEAN IT ALL UP AT THE END. SORRY I DONT HAVE PICS OF THE ENTIRE PROJECT, I DIDNT THINK ABOUT IT UNTIL TOO LATE, BUT HERES WHAT I HAVE SO FAR.

i have a jeep grand cherokee, and theres just not much room in the cargo space, i wish i could have fit a huge 12 + cubic foot box back there, and i could have if i took it all the way to the roof, but i didnt want to do that, its already above the window line now, but im not in competitions, so i dont care about that. its 9.0 after port displacement though, seems big enough for now.

yes, they are fifteens, and the external deminsions are 40 w x 21 h x 26 deep, figure it for yourself

you cant just take the external dimensions though cuz you have that giant port running strait through the middle, i still cant see that box being 9 cubes.

It's 12.6 without the port, so perhaps it is with the port. It doesn't look near that though, as if that is 26 deep, then there's 5.5" on either side of the subs and I'm not seeing it.

ok... with fiberglass baffle and all, with no port, its 10.75 cubic feet. after speaker displacment, brace displacement, and port displacement(which in my case is 1.65 cubic feet), its right at 9 cubic feet, at least bb6 tells me so

and its only 12.6 if you dont factor in that the MDF is .75 thick ;) ftw

succes! and that port has to take up more than 1 ft3, cuz after you subtract 1.5 from each side i got ~10

come on man.. u got over 3000 posts, recheck the math. the internal deminsions would be 19.5 x 38.5 x 24.5, which is 10.64 cubic feet

and i actually said the port displacement was 1.65 cubic feet. FTW

~10=10.6 :fyi:

haha, c'mon, just let him build the box....

there's too many guys running around with 15" l7's in 2.0cf prefabs, and myself with my 9.0cf box with 39 square of port area.....

i don't think it's gonna matter much if it's a bit shy of 9....... it's gonna be a lot better than me and the prefabbers :)

thanks man! im just trying to do the best i can, im not a professional like some of these guys, i just love car audio and music, and love it LOUD. and ur 9.0 has 39 sq of port area? that seems small, but an online calculator told me i had to have at least 110 sq on my port, and when building, i forgot that little bit of information :-\, so i wound up with like 95 sq, i jsut hope it doesnt make a big difference

I am just letting him build the box, but I have to play el advocato del diablo just to make sure people get the most of their time ;)

your port should be perfect, actually

kicker recommends 50 square inches per 15" L7

My new box will be 2.5" x 40" port, and yes, 39" is way way way too small, they're not much louder than my 2 12's at this point :(
