I have 26.63 cubes after disp for one layer of mdf 55x48x20 blow through F-150

If i have to go with 2 layers it will only be 23 cubes, but with bracing I can get away with 1 layer right??

So with 26 cubes before any displacment what would you go with??

4 18's?
4 15's?
6 15's?

Would do 8 12's but too many subs to worry bout

Have you even measured the inside of your truck yet to see how big your cut can be?

The more I install the more I learn

dont put a 15 in a 12 box

put a 12 in a 12 box and sometimes a 10 in a 12 box :)

Also consider the amount of proper airspace per sub

an enclosure that big needs to be double walled AND braced...

Exactly. I've been telling you SWFL that you need to just go with 4-15s or 8-12s. That will allow you to use multiple baffles and bracing and not have to worry about cutting it close on the volume.

not doing 8 12's

its either 4 or 6 15's

18's are prob gonna need much more than 5 cubes a piece

6 15's is more cone area than 8 12's and less mounting room

45 inches on each side compared to 48" i only have 55" depth. Also its cost less and 15's everyone says is the way to go will play low as hell

its either 4 or 6 15's I would like to do 18's but idk if i have the room for 18's and idk if i have the room for 6 15's. I know I do for 4 15's

But a builder knows more than me so they would know what I have room for(reason for the thread)

you could do 3 18's

SWFL

wouldnt 4 15's be more cone area?? nope just more with the 18's only a small difference

3 18s sound good. funky wiring to ohm load but w/e

I couldnt fit 21's lol way too big i only have 48" wide

thats 42 plus the 3? for MDF thats 45" leaves a 3" port???

could only do sealed, unless i did sometype of weird box with subs facing up?

idk how is it possible

Whats the prices of the 21" subs?

Also 4 15's will have more cone area

They're **** near the same....

I'd go with 4 15's... double walled and braced...

To do 8 12's in 48" you would have to stager them to get a fit in the dem's you provided.Plce once you account for bracing and corners your probably better off going with 4 15's IMO.

SWFL
07-06-2009, 11:25 PM
yea 4 15's with tons of port area and 4-4.5 cubes each or 6 15's with 3-3.5 cubes and not a lot of port area

Bracing > double layers of MDF. Adding bracing in strategic locations throughout the box not only occupies less internal volume, but is actually stronger than just a normal box with doubled up walls. It also uses less material and will weight less while still retaining more rigidity. Get yourself a router and a pen and paper and start coming up with some creative looking window braces that would look nice in the blowthrough :D

8 12's may be in the works or 4 15's??
