...I need some help getting it sketched up and planned out so i can start cutting. You guys are way better at this than I, hence this thread.

this is what i want to build:


.75" mdf

16"h X 35"w X 17.75"d

three 3" (inside diameter) areo ports 13.4" deep each

4 cubes net tuned to 30hz

I'd do 4"s. 3" ports are tiny and have jack for port area.

You have 13,000 posts on a car audio forum and you don't know how to design a box?

this is correct. this is the 2nd box i've dealt with. i don't change it much, which is why i don't have this down already

Are you just wanting a visual sketchup of the box to see where everything will go? Also the three 3" wont be enough port area for that box. If you need help pm me and I will design you something.

ps. Im not far from you

i'm down for whatever will work w/o taking my ENTIRE trunk space. that was the point of the smallish box with aeros vs a slot. if you can get me REALLY close to those dimensions, i'm 100% willing to let you...

btw, just curious... how much to have you design/build it, and i just come with an empty trunk to pick it up? (just to see if it's cost effective)

Let me play around with some designs and I will get back to you with a price. I currently don't charge for designs though.

sweet. just an :fyi:... the height CAN NOT be more than 16" and NOT wider than 35"

actually, if it's much deeper than where it is now, it'll probably need to be 15" high to clear the opening
