View Full Version : tryin to fix oversize box problem

12-09-2003, 11:13 PM
a lil carried away and built it too big, I got 4 kenwood 10" kdc-x1025db in a sealed enclosure, they share the same air space. the box came to 5.28ft'(internal) kenwoods sealed recomendations are .6-1.25 and ported .75-1.5.
know can I fix this by adding a port or two?sizes? the subs are firing up, would the ports go on top or on the side against the back seat?(extended cab pkup)
Or do I need to build another?

Stick a brink in it ;) (Now ask yourself, "Is he joking?")

I would say first.. Just try the setup out. If you have the room in your truck, and you have the subs and you have the amps... Just hook everything up.

I think you will be surprised as to how it sounds.

Yea try it out and see. I used to have my subs in a 1.6 cu ft box for each sub when they are only recommended to have a 1.2 cu ft. box for each.

sounds like crap, tried porting it and it still sounds like crap.
Time for a new box

I did the same thing cept the box fits in my trunk.. just not the way i want it too.... turns out there is a metal thing that is messing up the clearance i need.... If i remove it i can slide it up agianst the rear seats.. problem is i dont know how to remove the metal things....

if its ported and you have too much airspace, heres an idea :idea: go to wal mart and buy a crapload of those under the seat air fresheners and put them in your box to take up space. it will be like a air freshener shooter when the bass hits

Porting it, ony made the problem worse...

Really no matter what you did to fix it it woulda been kinda Rigged, but you could have screwed and glued in blocks of MDF or something to eat up excessive air space, maybe even used expandafoam...

Or you could try stuffing phone books, midgets, toy cars, anything to take up air space inside the box. :P ;)
