Also if someone can build it put it all together and take it back a part and label it I could put it back together. I would have to any way as it would be to wide.

I have one person that said they could do it on a CNC and ship me the parts all labeled. So I am open to this ideas.

here to buy

Why have someone non local build it?
There are several guys in ORL who can build it.

Yea I know, but I am looking for a great design since the space is so TIGHT. If someone local wants to chime in thats cool as well. :)

I could have some one build it here or some one can ship the parts to me. I can work with either it's the design I need the most as it needs to be very efficient and I need it to get loud.

The placement of subs and port seem to make a huge difference in my truck.

I just **** at designing it and cutting it.. Putting it together is the easy part and if done on a CNC it's all counter sunk, pre drilled and all.

You want your net to be 1.5 or 1.5 each, even each that seems small. Goodluck home slice.

1.5 each after displacement is the min I have seen for 12 nightshades more the better for sure..

This is what jacob sent me for these as "specs"

They have 3 prototype spiders (little lower Fs than the current models, these are slightly softer), plus double leads, new aluminum pole plugs, and the newest D1 coil with collar vents.

You have not offered.. ;)

I love the old box, but this one will have to be built in the truck as I can't get anything wider then 19" in the door with it on. Maybe 24" with it off so it kind of needs to be built in there as I really don't want to remove the door.. lol

If you want to build it pm me or im me.. :)

Its not so much the box as a design that I need some ideas on. Lots of locals that can build it and might be able to design it but I would like to get a few design ideas even if i need to pay for them..

lol

Yea I still go it, trying to figure out a design with in my space I have first.

Maybe if I offer $5 or $10 for some designs someone can at least come up with one that will work. LoL

I would most likely have you build it or check the design any way.. lol If you want to take a stab at the design let me know I can shoot you some $$. Everyone is saying don't tune the nightshades so low do more like 38 rather then 32, do 4th order, don't do 4th order, so I am open to ideas from someone like your self for sure. :)

I really don't like 4th order much in m truck due to limited space, can't get easy access to the sub, so I think I would want ported but how to put the subs and port seems to be EVERYONES issue.. :)

I would even be ok with saying screw bass boxing as thats where my height limit comes from and just do bass race if the box can be made to sound more like yours and could get me close to 149.9, I want it loud and to hit hard like yours but I don't have a wall or 2 21's.. lol

ported ftw in this case

RetroAudioinc

ported ftw in this case

If you can come up with a design you can have the build. As long as you don't break the bank.. haha

I don't mind driving to Tampa to have you do it right for me. :)

what were you hitting in the old box?

RetroAudioinc
11-21-2009, 03:33 PM
143.7 with my current setup 1 xxx-6500D 2 x nightshades.

Going to 4 nightshades and 2 xxx's strapped.. So double power and subs and better box = big numbers I hope.. lol

I got subs and amps.. I can run the 4 off the one xxx until I get more batteries.. So any time really.. Just depends on $$$

That works.. I was going to do 6 batteries in the bed. I might have to hold off on those for a little bit, kind of have to go in steps due to $$$.. :(

If I can sell my nightshade 18" and 15" I could most likely grab the batteries as well.
