No vid's yet, but Im contemplating to keep this design or try something else before I invest the time into creating a templete to completly wall it off and wrap it with black pleather.

Right now only songs that are screwed/chopped up really hit hard, the amount of flex I get with Late Night Tip by 36 screwed and chopped is quite ridiculous. It moves my shirt and pants about 4-5 feet away from the vehicle.

I'm thinking about trying out something like this...

45"x37"x19"
Port is 6"x35.5
213sq.in. of port area
12cuft without subs or bracing
33hz

The port would face up toward the roof of the rear hatch, If I want to tun higher to about 36hz I would remove the 6" (2nd port piece) "L" section of the port, turning it into a straight port.

Why the 33hz? I like this tuning, but you think your 28 is too low or what?

I think I may have messed up on calculating the tuning. I never took into effect all the resin I put in the box nor all the window bracing. It's probably closer to 26.5-27hz.

The Pros:
*Moves Hella Air
*Sounds very clean when listening to music at medium volumes, blends well wth mids/highs

The Cons:
*It doesn't "hurt" like bass in the 33-36hz range does.
*There's not that many songs that bump real well on that frequency.

I've been told the MT's can play a little under tuning better than other woofers (kind of like the dd's). 33hz might be a good change :)

I'm using Kenwood 800watt to some Boston Acoustic Pro door speakers and a Rockford T30001bd thats rated at 3800rms on the birth sheet.

I'm thinking of ditching the wall and going with a long short box which will be below the window line. This box will go from back of front seats all the way back to the rear hatch.

56x36.5x16
Port is 6x35 and is 33" long
210 sq.in. of port area
12cuft
33hz

Port would be at rear of vehicle, I stager the subs because the distance between my fender wells is 36" and it's easier to fit the subs in when stagering them...

Totally correct, one T30001 and one 12" TRF. They did a 153.7 and a 153.8 with it, street A ;) i would say this amp does its power...



We also measure and list the power output of the amplifier via CEA-2006 specifications. again, i would think it will do the 3kw

usually you want to stick with the ports width. i know snoopdan though has said in the jeep that the closer you get, up to about 2", the louder he is on the mic.

I was checking out Meade's (2) 18" RE MT install, he did both subs and port up, he is using 15sq.in. of port area per cuft of box volume. I plan to use 16.5sq.in. of port area for every cuft of box volume....

Not unless I raise the box 2", the mounting depth of the MT is 10.75, with the double baffle I only have 10".

This is why I'm kinda leaning to the design with the big square port.

Will the subs placed where they are on the slot port design not work out that well?

http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/5373/corner12cubeszl2.jpg

I only have 37.5" between my fender wells and the out mounting dimensions of the subs are 18.5" X 2 subs = 37". My 1st design that is shown in the original post was a ***** to make the cutouts just right. I'd rather have them stagered to get better bracing.

Where would you guys place the subs on the box's? Farther away from the port? Closer?

ContourSPL
03-07-2008, 02:26 PM
The sub closest to the port will unload faster than the one in the front. Yeah, it's still going to be loud, there MT's but if there is some way you can get both subs to load into the port evenly, it'll be louder. I hate designing enclosures with space limitations.

I have a single 12" box that I use to determine port direction and sub loading. I have no experience with your year of Blazer, but my 87 liked port to the driver side subs facing up. I gained 1.3 db with the side port vs sub up port back. Also was .4 db louder than subs back and port back. I suggest building a scaled down test box before building a new box under the window line.

Yep, I know exactly what your talking about, that rear windows gonna flex like crazy. Thats why in the past I've ran both sub and port forward....

Not unless I raise the box 2", the mounting depth of the MT is 10.75, with the double baffle I only have 10".

This is why I'm kinda leaning to the design with the big square port.

Will the subs placed where they are on the slot port design not work out that well?

not so much. the airspace above the port will not be pressurized correctly, and you run the risk of unloading the drivers because of it.

coinsider raising it just one inch...MT's dont need any room behind the motor as there is no vent pole, so a quarter inch should be just fine.\


staggering them is fine though...

either that or lower the port 1 inch...

or just build the same wall you have and tune it higher. 35hz would be a good place to start................

1st thing I'm going to do this weekend before I do the new build is chop off about 5-6" of port out of my current box/wall which will give me 33-35hz tuning. I will see how it sounds, if it's what I'm looking for I'll keep it. If it doesnt work out well I'll build one of the box's I've posted in this thread and I will make sure the subs are side by side loaded evenly with the port.

sigh, guess you could always go sealed........

Anyway, have you thought about instead of chopping down the port maybe add some stuff inside the box to take up enclosure volume? That way you still raise the tuning and IF you decide to run more power in the future, your subs will be able to handle the power better in the smaller enclosure and it's always easier to take out the stuff you add instead of vice versa. I say throw in some large 45's in the corner to take up the space.

dont completely limit yourself to a crx style box or any other box. this setup is in an explorer. this user has tried a crx style box and he lost 2.3db by going that route.

this is how he is loudest on the mic for his particular setup. scored a 151.7 (i think in the kick, but i could be wrong) off 1 sundown 3000d. just by looking at it, you wouldnt think it would score louder than a crx style box, but obviously it can at least in this particular setup

Yes i have tried different positioning and subs forward / Ports up along the back window line yield the highist SPL !
if i lay the box on its back and fire the subs up & port to the rear i lose 2.3db

I'll either take 5" of port off or put a big 45 in the top rear corner.... this was my original plan so I could slid the box back to fit snug agains the rear hatch and match the slop of the window....

No updates on the system...

My blazer was stolen out of my garage a few weeks ago. They found it, but it was pretty much totaled.

I turned in hella receipts to cover everything in the vehicle and even make a small profit out of this event. Lets just say I've got enough to rebuild and upgrade to 22's and (4) 18's :D

Just trying to decide on what to get or to rebuild the blazer better then what it was before and still have money to spare.

Here's my options that I've been looking at..

Black Infinity FX35 on 24's with a single 18"(maybe SSA SPL series)...

http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/1502/fx35rq7.jpg


Black Dodge Charger on 24's with (4) 10's in a 4th order bandpass ported through arm rest...

http://img366.imageshack.us/img366/814/newcharger2xa5.jpg


Regardless of what happens the future ride is gonna be tight.

Oh and BTW, I'm in the process of purchasing and customizing a really nice Model 1300 Defender 8-Shot with Pistol Grip Stock and lazer/flashlight attachment so the next time this happens I will be ready....

wow..that ***** man..that blazer was bad *** to..

SHiZNiLTi
03-31-2008, 06:35 PM
Ya, it *****.

I actually took the the giant dual 18" 15cuft box out of the blazer a few days before the jacking and put just a single 18 back into it in my 7cuft box. That weekend I was going to modifiy the box to raise the tuning and angle the top corner so it will slide back flush against the window. I even borrowed my friends HD camcorder to make videos, but I was 1 day too late :(

I put hella time into that ride, which is why I'm thinking about keeping it and rebuilding it with the cash that I'm getting back. But I kinda want to start fresh with a new ride.

I'm really diggin the Inifiniti fx35, its interior is amazing and it sounds just like a 350z and when supercharged its just fast as fck...

No pics, just some cruddy quality phone pics, its really not that bad. When they drove it off into the desert on crap/wheels and tires one fell off causing damage to the front end. I'm pretty sure the insurance is going to total it out and pay my 6-7k for the blazer then another 5k for the rims and system which was insured.

I'm meeting up with a guy in 10 minutes after work to check out this chevy truck on 24's, it's a hella good deal IMO and would be a nice setup for a blow through with (6) 12's :D

SHiZNiLTi
04-03-2008, 04:33 PM
*UPDATE* That Chevy truck posted above was clean outside, but the inside was wack.. no leather, roll up windows, dirty as hell. I decided it's not what I'm looking for. Plus I may get the blazer back...

Scenario 1:
If the insurance decides that it isn't fixable they will call it totaled and keep the blazer and give me a total of $12,000 to cover the blazer, wheels and system. I would probably have the option of buying it back at auction, but I'm not sure how that would work out since I havnt asked yet.

Scenario 2
If they decide to fix the blazer. I will get fresh paint, new front right disc brake rotor that was damaged when the wheel fell off when they went to dump it, a new front valance, new dash and center console that was cracked, new front carpet that was ripped, new intereor rear panel that was fcked up and cracked when I put the 14cuft box in it, all fluids flushed, free oil change, etc. etc.

So pretty much it will be like getting a brand new blazer.... My firend is the service manager at the chevy dealership the blazer will go to to get these repairs done so he will go all out on it.

Then after it's fixed I get a check for $5000 to buy some 22's and get a new system....

Keep in mind I still have a 18" RE MT.....At the time my Blazer got jacked I just had a single 18 RE MT in it a T30001bd, a couple yellow tops and a cheap pioneer 6800 headunit which all in all I spent about $1200 total on.

After I get these Sevas 22x10.5 and 22x8.5 staggared wheels with 295/25/22 | 265/30/22 tires I will still have $3500 left to put towards building a new system...

http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showpost.php?p=4348322&postcount=43

I probably will end up selling the 18" RE MT I still have and start fresh.

What kinda system would you guys put together for $3500?

thanks for comments and info.

(2) 18" Fi BTL's Fully Loaded
(2) Kicker ZX2500's or Sundown SAZ-3000's

Alpine CDA-9885

That would come out pretty close to my $3500 budget.

Ya, I still have the 15cuft box for (2) 18's in my garage. I even cut the port down 5 inches to raise the tuning to 33-34hz from the 28hz that it was tuned at. If it sounds good I would wall it off.
