Well, after my last setup getting jacked, i believe imma build a wall behind my 2nd row seating(3rd row removed). I have most definately never done anything this big. I plan on using 4, 15's, and already have a sundown saz-300d. I also have to get a couple good batteries. I want to keep the amp, and batteries easily accessible from the rear doors(rear of wall area). I would like all 4 subs off centered towards the passenger side, and the port comming out behind the drivers rear seat. How would i start this daring project? should i frame it all in with 2x4's....as i have seen done on alot of builds? wat abou the 2 rear side windows? black them out, and cover them with mdf? as i said, i have never done a build like this, so im most defiantely gonna need alot of help this time around...lol. Or is anyone on here has a walled suburban, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated! thanks, Ed

5% tint on the side rear windows, plus paint the box there black. i can still see some of my wall if the sun hits it right and i look hard, but with tint you should be ok. why only 4 15"s? i mean you have a lot more room even behind those seats. a buddy of mine had a 96 with this wall:

sounded good considering they were L7's, i believe it was tuned in the low 30's, maybe 33hz. not sure on the box size. wasnt anything crazy on the meter, it could do about 150.5-151 on music sealed up on TL, but it could play it ALL day literally at probably 150db. he never burped it, just a daily beater. he was running 3 zx1500.1's, so no crazy power either. he traded it for another burban lifted way up on 49" Irocs :p:

depends how dedicated you are, the what you have said is a great idea, or you could try to build it outside and the slide it, and make a trim panel, to make it a true wall

I do only wanna run the one 30000d thou.....not trying to go TOTALLY balls to the wall here....just want something different, and a tad louder than my past setups......thanks for the POSITIVE input fellaz.....keep it comming!

2 nightshade 18's sound like a perfect match..

if I manage to pick up a suburban off a friend - its definately getting 4 Mach 5 mj 18"s
verry cost effective - and tons of cone area. should be a monster.

i have yet to see an install using the 21" dps.....

makes me sad sometimes.

to the op
design the box first then figure out which would be easier to build it inside the vehicle or to build it outside then slide it in.

you could get another 3000D and strap them. That would open up your sub choices. Or just run 2 D4 subs to each amp.

id really like to keep it using one amp. Im sure it will still be plenty loud for me...daily....with 3-4000 watts, and 4, 18's. just need to get some ideas on how i go about designing this beast...lol
