I measure my trunk its 5 feet x 2.5 feet x 1.5 + feet, (rough estement)
I calculated that a box at 3.5 ft x 1.5 ft x 1.25 ft= 6.56 cu ft. would this
box fit in my trunk, i believe so. I'm savin up for a 15" brahma, i have my eclipse amp 800 watts for it and i was reading on adire's site that on guy put up some serious numbers w/ a 6.6 cu ft box w/ 1 15" brahma tuned at 55 htz w/ an 800 watt amp.
And if I make it myself it souldnt be hard cuz its gonna be rectangle?
Should i have the sub fire up tward the trunk?
Thanx

thats just from your drivers seat.....but it really depends on the car, the box, the sub and many other factors. you just have to move it around and see whats best.

as far as comps go, it depends on where the mic is placed.

yes face the speakers to the back and you will get a few more dB out of it

yeah, faceing the sub towards the the back of the trunk allows the waves to bounce off the back of the trunck and back towards the front windsheild as to where bass is meausered.. facein the subs upwards, send the waves up towards the trunk, then back down then back up and s on..loosen alot of bass b4 it does reach the front winsheild... thats my opinion anyways

Im gonna build a box like this same 6.6 cu ft w/ that port but mine will be slanted more. The front is gonna be 5 " slanted up to 16".
