I always thought that your setup decides what class youre in? Not you deciding? You'd be in Street C for DB Drag

well i am pretty sure there are a few different options as far as what my system would fit into, and i was just wondering what they were.... is there a battery size limit for Street C? becasue my battery is HUGE!

Bass race 130.0 dB to 139.9 dB?

the PVC on the baffle is actually to connect two seperate parts of the box.


becasue since it was two peices, i couldnt get the peice in the back in, unless the peice in the spare tire area, was not in yet. SO i tried putting the further back peice in first, then i was going to put the spare tire area peice in, but it was too tall, the only way the spare tire area peice would fit in is if i cut it down, but i had to cut it down so far that there was no way for the air to flow between the two parts of the enclosure (the further back peice was too high up for the spare tire area peice to reach) Thus me having to use those 90 degree bend PVC for the air to flow between the two sections


if that makes sense....

so basically the sub is behind the actual box of ports but all together it touches and you just change the small front baffle of ports to change tuning looks neat weird idea but whatever works.I take it your seats dont come down

for starters take a look at the different organizations and their respective rules and make your decision from there.

if you're really serious about competing then the "very least" you could do it familiarize yourself with the rules...

as for the enclosure it looks like the OP is attempting to connect the wheel well enclosure with the horizontal one via those PVC tubes and then porting out through those 3 PVC tubes on the left... is that correct OP? I cant see it being a good idea mind you...lol

no they do not fold down :(:(

but yea it is definately not the way i was planning on making the box, but since i ran into compications, i decided to make it the way i did, and i like it. :D
