i am gonna run 1 solox 18 in my trailblazer. right now i have it in 10cubes with an atomic 3000.1 wired at .5ohm its loud but not where i want it to be. so i am gonna try a differ box. has anyone ever heard this sub in a fourth order. i am thinking about 2.5 cubes sealed shooting into 12 cubes ported powered by a memphis 4kw. wired @ 2ohms daily and .5 for burps. electrical i got 150 amp alt. and five orange tops in the back it supports my atomic at .5 daily so it should be suffiencent for the memphis for burps. any suggestions on the build would be greatly appreciated

build the outer shell as strong as you can,,and dont go full power at first you can kill a sub quick in a bandpass :) do you know what your gonna tune the ported chamber at?

i'd go on termpro and check out some of the bandpass threads to give ya some idea's,honestly im just starting to mess with them too and i dont want to put ya on the wrong track. a big ported chamber makes it more peaky and efficient,but also more dangerous for the subs.Im not sure about your dual tuning idea.It works with standard ported boxes but when i tryed it with my band pass the subs allmost destroyed them selves at low power. 80 inches on here does alot of BP's maybe he will chime in.I can keep ya posted on any thing i find out:)

ok someone told me to make the port as big as possible and it still will play music pretty good

The bigger ported chamber won't hurt the sub :)

just curious... not doubting you or anything so dont think im trying to insult your inteligence. haha. but what kind of electrical you got going on besides the alt and 5 other batteries? i mean... basically if you only have 1 or 2 runs of power ( or ground ) from front to back you may need more.. you could just simply not have enough juice... You probably have that taken care of anyways. but if not, that might be a db problem. lol..

peep the thread in my sig.

if you need advice talk to 80 inches, and if you need it sketched up, let me know, and we can work something out.
