Well I am getting an 18" re sx here soon and figured I would ask everybody,
(especially you cynics) what you think of my design...

-The sub displaces .22 ft^3
-the port goes back 30in
-the port itself is 2.08 cubic ft by itself internally
-the port is just a little shy of 3.5" tall

I figure this would sound good... I will be giving it my 1200w amp...

this is my daily driver... I had to give up my comps until I get some more time, because I ship out Aug. 30th for the Navy.

I haven't had an 18 before that's why I ask.

eh i dk i had 9.3 cubes tuned to 28htz....i have lacking midbass so i went smaller with the 6.5...if your running some components up front then 8 should be good for you

yea I write everything out to make sure I don't make mistakes... and go back and check it....

I wrote a page and a half of going through everything from tuning to internal space vs external... ran out to the old blazer and did some measurements came back in...

I like the old school style.
