First off, I haven't posted on these forums since like january.
Well my friend wanted a ported box for his camaro. I decided it was time to break out the tools and begin work. If anyone wants to the dimensions I can have them posted up later.


And Yes, I know xplod's ****. They are not mine.

This box is ported to 35hz @ 1.9 cubes

This box was surprisingly loud for its small size. Nothing compared to my 5.5 cube box with my 15, but still. This box has some punch. I thought there would be alot of port noise, but there really isn't any port noise at all. Only ~14 Square inches of port.

How hard does your Kicker CompVR pound?

O and if I could get the dimensions of that box it would really be appreciated.

O sorry the camaro box.
where'd u put the amp?

I was just wondering about your subs because I was looking at them earlier.
The guy was telling me I would need 2 of them or 1 18.

Thats just crazy....
my car would fall apart..

I cant imagine there NOT being port noise, except when the subs are turned off :S

I tried my hardest when matching carpet color. lol


The CompVR sounds pretty decent. Not as good as some other speakers but it really pounds hard. Even with an Audiobahn amp. Granite, the box is 5.5 cubes with 60sq inches of port, but still its loud.


Maybe I am going deaf, because I can't hear the port noise. BTW, I used brake caliper paint for the black. haha

I really like the box built. my bro paid some online company to build a seperate chamber dual 12's for his T-back firebird and cost him $285 -_-.

the box looks good. but i realy think there would be port noise. unles you have your subsonic filter set to like 80Hz. i would think theres port noice. lol J/K

how much power are you runing them with?

still looks good. mang

Those wire strippers are the best ones i've used. Those look newer than the ones i've got though.

Does that camaro have T-Tops?

Plans give you the outside dimensions. Plans need to be reworked if your going to cut the pieces. Porting is up to you.

My friend has a 99 camaro with T-Tops. He doesn't want to put a box there (even though its a perfect place) because he'll lose the top storage.
