Box needs to be somewhere between 2.5cuft and 2.75cuft tuned to 30hz ported

15" IDQ v2
Spec sheet here
http://www.imagedynamicsusa.com/pdf/IDQ15%20D2%20V2.pdf

I have a rough sketch of the dimensions I have available in my trunk.
Can I get a quote how much for just the design (with measurements of how cut size of each piece),
and
a quote for how much built + shipped to oakland, ca

Here's what I have available in my trunk space
Measurements aren't exact at the moment (+ or - a few cm/inchs, but they're pretty close numbers as to how much space is available), its just to give you builders an idea what you'll be working with.

Leave a message here or send me a pm with your quote, thanks

I dont know thats what people whos got a 15" IDQ been recommending,as well as the spec sheet...


As for your box, I think that you should stick to what they recommend. 2 cubes sound a little small. I would try to fit 2.5 cubes in there.

Im sure they can go in it but that dont mean they will b as loud or sound as good.

shavenblazer go tell the manufature that recomends 2.25-2.75 for IDQ 15 ported that there wrong... i guess u must have designed and built the IDQ and not them huh

just another example the Elemental design ov19 will go in 3.5 ported and thats a 18" woofer

Just cuase it can go in it means nothing my bl can go in 2.5 if i wonted it to. But im not gonna put it in it. Why give it the least it can go in and not what it needs or more??:confused:

Do you have any idea what parameters dictate optimum enclosure size? Would you then care to tell me how none of them matter except Sd?

I know of a 15" that would sound horrible in 4-5 cubes and would sound amazing in over 100+ cubic feet of airspace per driver.

It's all in the design of the woofer and not the cone area.

And yes, 2.5-3.0 cubes would be about perfect for the IDQ. Tune it close to 30hz and things should be very nice.

wong05tsx, you have mail.

Well, I'm going to pipe up here because I myself have built more than enough enclosure's for customers to know that ID subwoofers regardless whether sealed or ported sound like complete azz in anything larger than their stated spec's for volume.

Putting a IDQ 15 in 3.5 cu.ft. ported tuned at 30 hz is and will lower the bass extension response so d@mn low it will sound like a wet fart.

That sub in 2.5 - 2.75 cu.ft. will tighten up and smooth the bass response not to mention the spl output will not kill the overall response performance.

Thanks all who have PM'd me with a quote, I'm gonna give this another day or two, on this forum and others to try to decide who will be the best for me. Thanks again =)

My IDQ 12 sounded just fine in 3 cubes @ 28hz. It's transient response was lacking a little bit and it did lose a little top end but in NO way did it sound like a wet fart. Does it sound better in 1.5 @ 30, yes. Did it sound horrible in 3 cubes? No. I almost think the low end is a little lacking with the 1.5 @ 30hz enclosure and almost want to put it in about 2.2 cubes tuned to 25hz.

TTT. If i can get a few more quotes on design + cut sheet only, kind of feel like going at this box build myself to improve on my skills :D

Well, I got the design already done in sketch up and won't charge a dime for the design/cut sheet.

All I need to know from you is what manner do you intend or want the parts cuts list to be done or I could just give the parts/cut list in the manner I would build this enclosure.

Also, how are you going to be cutting these parts - tablesaw or circular saw?

Oh.. sorry for having you go through the trouble.. i'll donate you a few bucks on paypal. The measurements i provided on the first page are also not exact, I was gonna take a pic and get exact measurements of how much space I have in my trunk. So i was htikning give ya a few bucks for making a few measurement changes in the sketch? I definately want the cut list too.

I will be having my uncle do the cuts a few cities a way on his table saw, i definately wont make the mistake of letting HD cut it this time :verymad:

Hey, it was not trouble calculating the spec's for the enclosure and doing the design in sketch up, took all of a half hour to do.

No problem, get pic's of the trunk area, actually take some pic's that show the complete area of the trunk space as well and post them up. Get the exact measurements for the area the enclosure is going to fit and post them.

Then all I need to do is modified the calculated spec's and the design, then do up the parts/cut list along with a design plan with all the dimensions.

Keep the money, use it for yourself or make a donation to a worth while cause.

Phil, need a build done for my trunk. I want the rear side (side that will sit deepest in the trunk against the back seats) to be angled to sit flush against it. You did a fantastic job on my last enclosure. Lemme know when's best to stop by so you can take some measurements.

I have a Bosch table saw but not the energy or time to build this myself right now :crap:

Much appreciate your time :cool:

Here's a pic of the trunk with a sketch of the space I have
http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d200/izsumthinwong/P1010339.jpg

The ones with ##-##, I prefer the smaller number, since there is a bar near the rear seats that is lower than the trunk height, if you make it the lower number, I can have the box go under that bar, if it is higher, i will just have to make it in front of that bar, therefore the box sitting farther out away from the rear seats. Hope this is clear enough :\ wasn't too sure how to do this, if you need any more pics just lemme know
