But there was a big problem the box was realy hard to fit in the boot and when i did get it to fit it was to big to fit a pushchair in so it had to go.:mad:

So now what to do with this box :whatever: hmmm ok ill make a new box out of it :beam:.

So i go with this box

As you can see the port is now the same side as the sub and there is now a 2 inch lip to stop the sub hitting the back seat's.

Horrible idea to have the port 180degrees from woofer. Also, WAY too small port area. For the first box.

Second one looks much better.

The first box the port was going to be 3 inch wide i used that back to show where the port was going to be.


It sound's realy nice and it's loud and lot's of wobble to i have just brought a
Hifonics Zeus ZX7500 to try on the sub.

I do have a orion 2500D but i love the class A/B sound better 600wrms from the A/B sound's just as loud as the orion but i know its just a trick of the ear becouse its much more SQ

lol.... :crap:

At what ohm is this 600 watts being pushed??

Also.... maybe it's more "SQ" because it's pounding.... less due to the lower power??? So technically.... you'r not really comprehending whats going on.

600wrms @ 4 ohm but i got the sub showing the amp a 2ohm load no problem's at all.

As i say it sound's nice and loud and the bass is musical. I know it's not going to be as loud as on the orion as i was using the orion on the xxx first. The A/B amp just sound's a lot better :D

No, it's not.

You're blind. It says ZX7500.


an to the OP, get a bigger amp. completely pointless to have that sub an not use it to its full potential....

If it is loud enough for what he wants, it's making enough of its potential. Not everyone has the same goal for their subs as you. I for one ran my XXX 12 on 400w for quite awhile and was pleased with the results. Output isn't everything to everyone.
