it'll make a difference. what do you mean fitting it in the car is an issue.

37Hz will require a longer port/bigger box...

well my trunk is weird. it dips down so i cant really get a box that has any kind of hight in there. i had a box that was tune to 32 it was a nice *** box but it would not fit and i sold it on the cheap. so i got this box and it fits so nice but it might be tune to high. it ***** cuz im waiting on my amp and subs to come and its like i feel as if im geting no were. i would love to build a box but i can right now and nor can i pay 300 dollers to have one built and shipped to me. i might go with the the one that tune to 37 it should hit the lower notes alot better what u guys think. im just kinda geting alittle pissed with the hole box fiting thing and tuning . The Fi subs like low tune boxs

ls2poweredgoat had a thread a while back. he'll build you one for cost of materials and shipping. the tuning doesn't neccesarily make a box bigger or smaller. port size changes dramatically with box size, number of ports, etc.

see i dont know anything about tuning . I did send him a pm about a box and i asked if he can help me out. trunk specs = 34 w X 15 h X 21 d the hight will be pushing it cuz my rear deck dips down. i will go mesaure up my box for the specs of that box cuz it fits nicw

you can tune as low as you want, but you have to sacrifice chamber space. that box is over 4 cubes, so that may be an option

how would i go about doing anything to this box as far messing with tuning ? if i did go with the 37 box that i can get it might be a little better Dimensions: 14.5"H X 32"W X 15.25"D
the only thing it 1.5 cubic per sub and the Fi like 1.8 +. see this whats geting me all messed up cuz i dont have much room but i need a box that will be tune low and not be big as all hell

it may sound good tuned low in a little less space. i'd personally go with smaller space tuned lower. with that space, i'd go with 3 subs sealed, or 2 10's ported. too late for that now. too bad you can't have someone build a box with aero ports. you may get some more space to work with.

i do thank you for your help today. i just gota like keep trying to get this **** done but in the right way. man this stuff cost so much money and for me to be f u c k ing up so much is like costing me a arm and leg lol. i might get the box tune to 37 to just have it. see im looking for loud that what im going for. i think i can go with this box for the break in period what u think about that.

a box built with aero ports would fit and be closer to what you want in tuning and volume. yet more money though.

your inbox is full btw.
