Looks really good, alot of effort went into the box. For a DD thats going to be crazy seriously. One 12 is loud by itself I cant imagine 4 of them off the proper power.

Mobi, what's the procedure for doing the flush offset for the top baffle. I know about cutting the bottom baffles first and then just using a regular flush bit, but that looks like a lot of wood would be coming off.

Who knows

i think you should be really happy with this, im thinking of changing up sonn but i dont know yet

rockford has me some good deals through employee stuff, ive been thinking of 4 Power T2 15s and a t4000

or i might just change to 4 of some other 15s either AQ or Fi, something and 1 or 2 t4000s, but it would be cramming for space

got a pretty good price on them, and they are secsy

QUICK QUESTION:


I was planning on putting one amp on the ones closest to port and than ones closest to trunk latch......than match them that way

I believe ive seen the ones towards the front/ closest to port in the box move differently than the ones away from it.....i think it would be the best way

Any other thoughts?

bamaboy
02-27-2008, 06:34 PM
should sound really nice, i cant remember my deminisons, but the only thing i would change on mine is the depth, after having it a month, i just pushed the box back, had to let the seats down though, but the low end sounded like 2x better

so i havnt had a back seat in months, id rather be loud and not be the chauffeur for everyone:D

i want to see how big that looks when you get in installed, my 2 MT's were in 8 cubes in my blazer, but it had to be real tall to fit, 8 cubes would be nothing in my X now, id probably do 10 cubes if i changed to 12s, or leave it 12 and cram some 15s

now just need to put in my order for a T40001 or 2 for rockford employee stuff

Im really highly considering just taking my back seat out for a while....be alot easier to fit all i want to right now

It would be bent down always anyways, so might as well
