...but I have one. I am just trying to build a sealed box with the max enclosure volume (5.2 cu feet) for a 07cvr154 and I cant figure it out. I "found" a copy of bassbox 6 pro but of course my sub isnt listed. I have tried to find all of the specs for it to no avail. Can somebody break down the info that I need potato head style or does anybody have the bassbox file for that sub?

Please help. Before this project I never even installed a HU. Now I installed the HU, comp speakers for all 4 doors, and amp for speakers, and amp for the sub and I am feeling pretty good about it except for the box. Sorry to say, I cheaped out on the box and it is pissing me off. I'm not going to say where I got it, but it rhymes with schmest schmy. I NEED THAT BOX GONE

its a sealed box, u dont need bassbox pro. Its just 6 sides. just play with some internal lengths widths and heights and divide them by 1728 until you get your desired volume

Who doesn't like Kicker? But sealed boxes are fairly simple, and they have the box recommendations on the website.

The box reqs that I saw on the site were for the compact box. I was looking for the max

I always see threads that are bashing kicker subs. Just figured that it was the red headed step child of subs around here

no that title belongs to JL because they cost too much for people around here. I likes kicker, have had almost all of their newer lines of subs

Im almost positive it shows the recommended size besides the compact, atleast it was for my older cvr. There is a list, which only shows compact and right above that if you read it, it should tell you the recommended sizes.

I was looking for the panel dimensions. It does show those for the compact but I am looking for it for the max. Maybe I am missing it. Here is the link to what I found.

Nevermind.. You already had this info haha.. You will have to figure out the panel sizes for youreslf.. I would go to the12volt.com and use the box calculator on there and play with some sizes to get your volume.

THANK YOU. Couple more questions though. If I got the calc to come out to 5.248 is that close enough to 5.2 or does it need to be exact? Also the kicker site says that it is 5.2 including the sub displacement so do I need to go a little bigger for the box?

So....what I have come up with so far is a box with the dimensions of 35 wide, 20 high, and 16 deep. Should come out to 5.20045 cu feet.

yep internal will be 5.20 using .75 thick MDF. Dont forget about the displacement of the subw. You will be right at 5.0 cu ft.

He says sealed in the first 10 words.

Hope you only gonna throw around 100-200 watts at it with a box that big sealed.

eus090474

Yes, I want it sealed. So I would need to add about .2 cubic feet to account for the sub in order to keep it at 5.2?

Amp is only gonna be giving it around 400

Kicker's recommended sized already include the displacement of the sub. I went through a whole long spiel with Kicker about this over the phone. If it says 5.2 cubes, build a box that's 5.2 cubes before the displacement of the sub.

It says that right near the bottom of page 4. It's the second paragraph to the last on the left side.

One last post...

By the way, I love my Kicker CVXs. They're almost as loud as the L7s, but a little cleaner.

Last dumb question. Do I put the carpet on after the box is put together?

I lied, I have yet another beginner question. Does it need a baffle?

I just figured that it might look bad if you could see the cuts on the fabric, wasnt sure if somehow it needed to be tucked in somewhere. Sorry

Go to elementaldesigns.com for a carpeting tutorial video.
Very helpful.
You will probably have to measure the outside of the box once assembled to figure how much carpet. Thats what I do anyway.
And be sure and get some extra to make sure you have enough.
And partsexpress.com for your next question.
Where to buy the carpet. :D
