Wondering what you guys are doin airspace wise for your 18" nightshades. I'm thinking between 8 and 9 cubes ported. Tuning around 32ish. Anybody have any input?

I dont think they need nearly 8 or 9 cubes.Dont quote me on this but i think someone has put one in like 4 cubes. I'm sure jacob will show up soon and answer completely for you

4-5 cubes per driver for 18s... if he has TWO then 8-9 is fine.

Many other 18s suggest larger boxes - we do not.

wow only 4 cubes, i was gettin ready to stuff 2 15's in 7cubes, if i can run 18's i will FIND the extra cubic foot... 2 18's on 3k in a standard cab truck with no blow through would beat

I hope you're ready to give up some leg room. The 12'' nightshade is 8.5'' deep and I had it behind my seat in my reg cab for a week...it just wasn't practical. I can't imagine a pair of 18s back there, no matter what your seat will be touching part of the cone.

Hmmm...should be interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing it. If it turns out right it will be sick.

Yeah, after port, sub, and bracing displacement. You're looking at at least 10 cubes before all that (for the pair).
