Why do you want a comp box?

I have the feeling you just want it to hit hard, comp boxes will sound like **** on music.

No this box will just be in the car for comps only. i plan on building another box for every day use.

L5 for comp...??

let me switch computers and i'll show pics of my build i finished yesterday for my 15" L7

dimensions are 36x24x14 external, with the port at 7 wide, then 6" on the bottom L inside the box

which is like 3.9+- internal volume and tuned a little above 38 hz, don't know bout comp boxes to much but tune it high mid-high 40's maybe

hits ******* hard but kinda sounds like poop




also, if you're going to be going for comp you're gonna need waay more power, hook it up to the zx1000 or something, i'm running mine with the zx1500 and it'll handle the power but i'm keeping it continously around 1,200 watts



sorry for the post, i just got unbanned!!! and i've been here to help people the whole time...

ya for sure, i'd say more power as i stated above though, but sounds good, something to get out and do

well at first i didn't plan on going to comps anymore. but once i got it installed i wanted to see what i was hitting and i ended up hitting a 141. that was in a sealed box that only has 1.5 cu ft. so i thought with a better box i might be able to get a little more out of it and just go to the local shops when they have there comps and have fun

do it mang, and just keep it in your car for your daily... ha

good luck with whatever you end up doing though, and build your box... saved me so much **** money, built it to my specs what i had room for, and only takes a day or two, with letting glues dry, glue/silicone one day, screw the next, capishe you're off bumpin harder than ever and know you built the box

ha, idk, blabbin alot, i think the local car audio place opens at 10 so i'm waitin around bored
