i have a 1998 chevy corvette. i have a glass hatchback and im debating. i dont know what i want to do or what would be better. if i ran ported i would have to run very compact at prolly 1.5-2.0 cubes and sealed i can deffanantly run. i want to be loud as fuh.but i want it to sound good too. im thinking about running 1300 to both subs. what you thing pix coming soon

hey rashaddd do u do custom boxes either with plexi windows or fiberglass?

You don't have the room for ported mx 15's. Just go sealed
and drop an aq3500 or there abouts on them. Ported would be
louder, but you can't realistically do it.

ya thats what i figured and so since im running to 15's with a decent amount of wattage i figured a good fiberglass box would do nicely. and i was also thinking of doing reverse mounted subs

Plexi or reverse. That RE MX *** end is too sweet to hide.

I can think of a very nice way to do a box there, i can't build it for you though, but I know there are people on here who can do glassing and you could probably get 6-7 cubes + that way

try to find someone local who can fiberglass

do them sealed, i tried my four mx 12's in a smallish ported box since i only have an rsx hatch to work with and i think if i would have sealed the thing it would have sounded a whole lot better, and this was with two Orioin 2500d's @ .5ohm each in the mix.
You dont have enough power for two I can tell you that, they are super inefficient.
Good luck though and show pix!

ok sealed it is...rashadd can sketch a box design or send me one that ur thinking of?

11-14-2008, 06:24 PM
gotta love that mx ace

11-14-2008, 06:31 PM
i take that as a no? lol

MXs reversed would sound like azz. They have a horrible mechanical noise when inverted, if thats what you were talking about. They are pretty though. I've heard a 12 inverted, and it was a beautiful install, but the noise it made was just too much of a distraction imo. Good luck and please show us the outcome

11-14-2008, 06:43 PM
ya i have ran it reversed for a little while u can deff hear the motor working.

but i want to run some kind of custom box eith with plexi glass windows or fiberglass.

it's not that hard to do an mdf box, with a plexi window. just make 1 full panel 3/4 plexi or lexan. i would guess that this could be a good time to get plexi. i'm no expert on plastics, but i think when oil prices go up, plexi and plastics go up as well. might not make a bit of difference. just a thought.
