make a box with a changeable port? Either replaceable or a WIDE slot that you can plug 1 side for daily.

Im guessing your doing an 18"

Im having a dilemma deciding my box specs too but im planing on tuning to 35hz, im trying for 7 cubes net but ive heard they will sound good even on 5.5 cubes, then again ive seen people give them 8-9 cubes each.


I really need to find out because its going to be the deciding factor of whether i take out my other rear seat in the back

It's an MT. Supply it with enough wattage, it will put up good numbers regardless of tuning.
My 2 18's were in the upper 153 area, tuned to 35hz..and got crazy on music(150).

I went from an 18 cube box to a 12 cube box and the 12 cube box was louder..(for 2 MT's)

I just worked out my design, 7.1 ft^3 before port and speaker displacement. So figuring i use 2x 6" aeros+the sub+bracing, after displacement ill be around 6ft^3. This is including the double baffle on top for the sub
