View Full Version : Important... Need Help

11-03-2008, 11:41 AM
Ok guys, one of the guys on this forum is going to build me an enclosure, and I need help coming up with a quick design so that I can tell him what I want. I have 2 15'' L7's that I am going to put in a 2000 Jetta (LOL, I know). So here is the problem. I wanted to port them at about 34-35 hz so they can get real loud. I spoke to a kicker rep today and read kicker's site and the rep told me that for the ported enclosure to work well it would have to be around 7 cub. ft. Kicker's site says minimum 6 cub. ft. I can only fit about 4.5 cub. ft. in my trunk. I was told that a sealed box built with the proper specs would give a higher output than a ported box which is too small... I read on the kicker site also that a sealed box will likely get real low (20-30hz)... and now I am starting to wonder how hard these bad boys can hit in such an enclosure. I know L7's are meant to get loud and dont have much SQ... so what do I do? I can only fit 4.5 cub. ft. in my trunk.... Can you guys please help me come up with a design that will give me the most output possible with the limited space... I need to get back to the person who is building the enclosure for me... Thanks.

i traded my 2 12's for these... (too good a deal)... So I'm holding on to these.

x2. I'd do one 15 ported. It should be real loud in a golf.

Just use 1 of them, or take out your rear seat and make a ported box to the correct dimensions lol

Also what kind of amp are you going to be using, with 2 L7s you better plan a spot for a 2nd battery.

Wall that b^tch, only way to use both of them to their potential. But id use one and sell the other!

I have a yellowtop battery... ****... So should I get rid of them and get my L7 12's again?

Having a lot of woofers doesn't help if you don't have the space. Go with a single 15", you'll be happy. If you need a design, PM me.
