Who is using one?
Why?
What kind of applications benefit most (if this question can even be answered lol)?
how does one go about deciding on dimensions, etc?

i'm interested in trying one for my setup...
Fi Q 12" w/BP
2.24cuft@34hz
hifonics 1600d (putting out 12-1300w rms)
sub back/port back

I did a search and came up with a few threads, but i would really just like to be able to ask my own qeustions regarding the loading walls.

TIA!

Read much?

To the OP:
All I know about loading walls is that they help control excursion.

No, a "loading wall" is not a "wall" I hope:laugh:
It's a piece of board or plexi mounted a few inches
in front of the subs. The subs are supposed to
sound deeper and louder to the ear.

It helps control excursion. Just face the sub back in your trunk and keep it close to the back of the trunk.

i thought the farther from the trunk the better for overall? gives the sound more time to reproduce..

Any idea how far to space it? a formula? Or just trial and error?

I think trial and error is all your going to get. There was a manufacturer
(maybe DD) that recommended them on a certain woofer. If you can figure
out who that was and what the recommendations were, that would be a place
to start.

I messed with something like it in my trunk, my idea was an angled 3/4" board to
sit in front of the rear wall and redirect the VBA up towards my 6x9 holes. I thought
it would lessen the vibration of my license plate too.

Well it did make the bass deeper and louder to the ear and also INCREASED my
license plate vibration:crazy:

It was big and ugly, mostly a fun experiment. I wanted my little bit of trunk
back. I never metered it, I got no backup other than my ears.
