My nephew and I just bought a CRX that we want to use to compete with in some local meets this year. We want to go with a wall but we have yet to figure out how much cubic feet of air space we can get out of a wall box in that small of a car. Any CRX guys on here? Any guess's?

Please tell me more! Will it fit with a "CRX" style box?

I'd say at least around 20 cubes. There was another thread in here where someone had a wall in a civic coupe that was around 19 or 20 subes.

at MOST you would see maybe like...15 cubes if your lucky. I wouldnt wall, theres more loud under the window line.

Well I for sure wont go with a wall if I can do a CRX style box with about 8-10 cubes.

First of all, it would depend on whether he removed the rear seats or not. In the example I spoke of, the owner had the wall end around 4"-6" behind the font seats(I'm guessing from the pictures here). He and the person who helped him build the wall stated that they had around 18-20 cubes.

Second of all, seeing as you are nineteen years old and still can't grasp the proper use of basic grammar, I would say that YOU'RE retarded. Go back to your Hooked on Phonics tapes kid.

Cool, thats about 8.3 cubic feet. I wonder how much that monster will displace out of the 8.3?

I'm not all that worried about being "e-cool". I do however find it ammusing that a person who seems unable to pass a sixth grade english class is calling anyone retarded. Unless you are simply a petty little boy with no self-esteem who makes himself feel better by insulting others, I see no reason for you to start berating people just because you disagree with them. As for the seecond half of your post, I don't think he asked what was louder. I believe he asked how much space he could get from walling off a CRX. Since he stated that he and his nephew bought the car for the sole purpose of competing , I naturally assumed that he planned on removing the rear seats. As such, the figures I posted and the evidence to which I referred were for walls that did not encounter the limitation of a rear seat.

Kicker's recommended enclosure for SPL applications is 10 cubes with 300 sq.in. of port area tuned to 56hz.

First of all an 18 in a rex is overkill. A good box design and 2 10s can get you well into the 50s. If you wall a CRX, you should be shot and killed.

pwnage.

explore the makers before you commit to a solox 18. not to down them, they are a strong woofer. but overall i was disappointed with my solox12. if thats what you want by all means go for it, but there are better subs out there with both better spl and sq that you could get for equivelent or less $$ than a solox. personally i just think kicker is a bit overrated. but thats me.

Get 4 Fi BTL 15s, and then wall it. I would think the enclosure would be a bit more proportional then.

Have you ever been in a CRX? There is no way you can fit 4 15s into a wall in one. Unless I'm smoking crack, there is no way it's possible. Also, there are no rear seats in a CRX.

Using big words makes you less cool on the internet, so you just lost a notch :fyi:. Now, if you knew much about CRX's you would have helped him by saying "no point in walling, you will be louder with a properly built CRX style box" but you didn't, therefore, not helping him at all really in the long run. Why let someone build a wall when you know they can easily get louder by not walling. So technically speaking, I answered his question, and then some. You won't get loud if you wall with whatever room given, compared to others, so don't wall. CRX style boxes are called that for a reason. They are what gets loudest in a CRX

No, I have not been in a CRX. But I was in the market for one at a time, and I looked at what must have been hundreds of pictures. While you're technically right, there are no rear seats, there is a sort of rear barricade that looks like it takes up a fair bit of room. 4 15s takes up less than a 3'x3' area. If the wall extends to the font seats and the woofers faced into the cabin, there should be room to at least fit the subs there. Whether or not he could get the amount of enclosure volume needed is another story. Granted, I'm going off of pictures, so my assumptions may be totally inaccurate.

Correct me anywhere I'm wrong. Just don't be a **** like "SayWhat?" The point of this forum is to help other enthusiasts out, not to flame on anyone who has a different opinion than you.

i have a crx with a back seat.
but it cost me over $400 on e-bay with seat belts
it's from a jdm car from japan.
but to the point i think you could do 4 15's in a wall.
as for a crx style box i'm still lost.
woffers up ports back.
but in my case i can't do ports back becayse there is no room, back of my box is right aginst the back of the car, so my port would be blocked.
is it OK to fire port out the driver side of the box?

must be behind b pillars, and no....4 15's will not fit. the fact something can be shoved in a space, doesnt make it correct. I can put 2 18's in a miata if i wanted to. Not going to loud though, its the box thats gets you loud.

You still dont need a wall though.. I guess I kinda answered my own question some what.

OMG, please do not take anything away from that car other than the fact that its HIDEOUS and the owner should be shot.

But on topic, Just because you can fit a wall with 4 15"s doesnt mean its going to be best in that sitation. Check out the numbers crx's put up. some CRX's in db drag rip 158's off single and dual 15's. Build it properly, not to simply get the wow factor...

I will indeed agree that the crx in the second link is hideous. Take away the 4-ft wing and the 10in. exhaust tips and it wouldn't be THAT bad. Not to mention the ****** LA Bolt equipment. I am diggin the CRX logo in the center of the enclosure.
