okay guys, so i ask alot of ?s but ive got some done now im getting to harder stuff. ive decided the exact shape of my box and have all the set dimensions for the height.width, and back of the box, but i need someone with box building skill to help me figure out the depth i need on the corners, as well as the center of the box to make the box equal about 6.5-6.7 cubic feet if neone can help me it will be so greatly appreciated. heres a sketch of what i have so far

once i get this issue resolved the only thing i need to design is the port. what tuning do you think would be the best for 3 12 in ported drivers in a everyday listening enviorment? 32hz-35hz???

n like i said there is no measurement for the depth anywhere because it is adjustable to whatever i need to help me reach about 6.5-6.7 cubic ft up to 26in deep on the corners, but hopefully i wont need it that deep. Thanks again!

if someone can design the box with the correct dimensions to make it about 6.6 or 6.7 ft then i will happily pay $$$

what kind of car is this going in? personally i think thats a wasted idea for the front and it'll just be better to keep the subs all on the same plane.

give some more info and we'll see if we can figure something out, car subs etc

its goin in a srt8 jeep and im doin the front like that because i want it to look good and im mounting the amp under in front of the center section.

as for the subs they will be 3 kicker cvx 12s powered by a kicker vx1500.1

personally, instead of doing that design setting them back, i'd just be doing sub up port back.

1. to keep it simple
2. its an suv, its proven to work.
3. i would not put the amp there, i just think it would cause problems.

i know you're thinking you'll impress your friend because it looks cool:laugh:

hows this, make it function properly first, then make it look nice.

he probably doesnt have the width to do that.

i read the thread.

nothing wring w doing it like that

it wont be THE most efficient, but it will work.

Well you guys give me some ideas. To make it more efficient. The only things I'm set on is 44in width and 18in ht.

everythings to spec might have to make a change or two, but providing i get some funding, i will gladly send over the dimensions.

i just dont understand y if two boxes are the same cubic ft and have the same port systme y it would sound better if the speakers were on the top or front? because i wanted to be able to stack stuff on the top of the box if needed

because sub and port orientation does play an important part in how the subs will sound.

If the the box is built PROPERLY, there can be a tremendous difference in the way it sounds.

and considering the way you were intended on making will effectively choke off the subs, i can promise that much. you will lose output as opposed to using the amount of space you have available.

i just really didnt want to put the subs facing upwards because wehn i put long stuff in, snowboard etc... it would sit on top of the box. and if the subs are there i couldnt do that. if you want to help me come up with a functional box that will use the same cubic ft etc and look good as well i will happily pay you to design it. i just dont wanna open my hatch and see a big rectangle lol!

well i was trying to go over one like you had wanted

HOWEVER, you cant do it without inverting the woofers except for the center one because the mounting depth doesnt permit it.

if it was to be made into a flat face its doable.

I would actually rather it be inverted if it won't hurt sound performance. N the center doesn't haft be as deep as my sketch shows. I'm open to change as long as of performs great and looks good also

it can and will, because you're clearly more concerned about how it looks moreso than it functions.

and with it being like that, its going to have to be sealed, theres not enough airspace for ported.

I should have enough space to make your design 3 have over 6 cubic ft. N I had first thought bout doin sealed but everyonoe said sealed would sound much better. With 44 in width I could prob invert all three subs if I needed and do tv corners 26 in deep and the. Center like 20 in deep. Would that not be big enough?

no, you dont have enough space with the dimensions you gave me to get over 6 cubes.

with the design #2 having the rear separated from the rest makes it 5.4 cubes, just for the sake of factoring in cubic airspace. but yields roughly 6 cubic feet if together.

#3 takes away roughly 2.5 cubes with having the sub recessed, so you're only going have have at best 4 cubes with the subs inverted. so your only option is sealed in that application.
