the plan as it stands is to run 4 dc lvl 4 18's. allready ordered on of the 18s. now i'm at the point wheir i'm ready to make another order but realy like the idea of more cone area. so i'm intertainning the idea of 8 lvl 3 15s ported or seal , wall or no wall. so help out on what type of box would beat hardest for the 15s?

my van build

I would go buck-wild doing a build in an astro...try and get a design together that people simply havent seen ;)

And I like the idea of more cone area too

that what i thought you were talkin about. so two per side. think that would be louder than a crx style box?

I think in a van, there's nothing like a wall but that's just me.

10 is an odd number but to each his own.

in his case, i think all that mattered was the ohm load going to his one sub amp. and iirc he had issues and plan on adding another amp.

Diamond wall as suggested above, but a clam shell design works well too.

Either design would be louder than CRX style in the van, and with all those subs, push a shitload of air.
