I just got mine in the mail :D . I was curious as to what size box I should put it in..i was thinkin something around 5cuft tuned to 36 hz. Its going in an extended cab s10 (tight fit i know) .I went to AQ(nothing pertaining to 18) and also searched and majority of threads relate to 15's. Here's pic http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w8/mwhite111884/hdc3.jpg

How much room do you have to work with? Will you be using a slot port or aeroport? If you have enough room, I'd do 6-7ft^3 tuned to 35-37hz.

dj recommends 6cubes at 38hz with 96" of port area.

6.5 to seven cubes tuned to 36 hz would be best for it in my opinion!

I think you'd be really happy with a 6.5ft^3 box with a couple of 15" long 6" aeroports, which would give you a tune between 35-36hz.

Depends on the power, but id say as big as possible if your thinkin 5 cubes, at least 6.

how much power and what style of music? You can go down to 5.25cubes if you have a lot of power. Tune to 35Hz if you mostly play C&S stuff.

Otherwise I 2nd what DJ recommended for a good all around daily box...

although i have mine in a 5 cube box tuned to 41...seems to do well...and new box i designed will be 4.08 cubes tuned to 38 & 45 with interchangable aero ports.

Two 8" aeros = 96 inches port area

iirc when using aero ports there isnt a need to use the 16 sq in of port area per cube rule.

Thanks for the help. Right now i will be using a hifonics bxi 1200 watt :( until i get something around the 1600/1900 range . Forgot to mention i only have copper coils. I mainly listen to rap, R*B, and 90s grunge lol

I'd do around 6cubes net @ 36-38Hz. 2 6" aero's would be fine...

6.5cubes @ 36hz...w/ a 10" Sonotube :crazy:
