already built a enclosure for my 18"fi btl..walled in my cherokee(actually created more room)..ive went to 2 different tunings so far..2 6" tubes and 2 8"tubeshttp://i874.photobucket.com/albums/ab309/riggerchaser/2009-10-13074214-1.jpg

so take out of the equation the 2 ports that are installed and i need what is the correct one or ones...with the 6in it hit real low but no high notes..with 8in hits hard but no lows..6in were at 9 in and 8in were at 12.75...

dimensions are all inside dimensions..38.5 width,height in front is 31 in and depth is 16.5 at bottom and 9 at tophttp://i874.photobucket.com/albums/ab309/riggerchaser/2009-10-19162454.jpg

i got a good deal thats why i used the particle(free) but as u see in finished pic i didnt want to have to pull down the back seat to let ports show so i mounted everything at top..its got the shorter top because of an internal brace on roof..so mounting longer ports will not work at top cause its shallower..i tried to figure out cf but just went with what i had to work with and threw in some 6"ports,worked before but not this time...ive been thinking about rebuilding if i had too but money is tight..i only had too buy a peice of carpet for 10 bucks and wood was free and everything else i had at home

your planning is full of fail
your materials are full of fail
your workmanship is full of fail

what is the subs displacement? find that then deduct that from the gross volume then go here and do the port:

sub is actually loud. hit a 148.7 with the old 6" tubes in there. car sealed up and termlab on the windsheild. played snoopdans barney remix. so the sub does sound good and gets loud. don't see the problem with someone just offering to help out a little. he is not the only guy using the tubes instead of aeros. and I believe its right around 9 cubes before displacment.
