this is a pic i took inside my truck, The dimensions I have are not the exact size of the truck, i left a few inches all around for some slack.

heres kinda what i was thinking, could someone tell me how to port this or something, i want as much SPL as possible.

im using a 12" kicker 2ohm 400rms shallow mount sub.

It would make things easier if you used aero ports but it is possible to slot port a box like that. Are you open to using aero ports?

PM me if you need a design.

i was thinking more along the lines of toilet paper rolls for ports.

are you going to remove the jack, and cover? or relocate it?

Is that a Kicker CVT you have, i would give it as much space as possible, from the setups ive heard in person they sound better/louder in larger boxes. (kinda defeats the purpose of a "shallow mount", but wat ever kicker..)

paper towel rolls :fyi: ... longer


ive actually seen a paper towel roll used for a port, yeah i was like "wtf!". I knew what it was, but i didnt dare ask to save him the embarrassment...


PVC would be your best/cheapest/easiest route IMO

Christmas wrapping paper rolls.

Even LONGER

but i might be getting 2 10" MA's instead of 1 12" kicker, not sure yet.

My JBL GTO's are pretty shallow. I think maybe like 6" or so?

i was looking in another thread, and i like the ported slant idea.
