Ok, so I wanted to try an ABC box because I had heard some great things about them and I had just enough room to fit it in the space I was willing to sacrifice in the trunk. I know it looks like a mess but it sounds amazing. Gets super low and accurate. Loud but clean. I'm impressed.

1.3 net tuned to 33/66hz using 3" PVC with some old flared ends I had laying around. Fi BL 10" powered by a Cadence A7HC.

Starting to come together.

Side view. 14" total height, 10.75 deep. The lip on the bottom is 4" total. 2" inside and 1.25" under. Just tall enough to clear the gas tank hump. Fits like a glove and netted me another ~ .4cf over just resting it on the hump. The back seats aren't a 45* angle so I got another 3" on the top side, which was another .5cf.

All buttoned up and ready for a listen. Pre-carpet (obviously). I may still make a false wall which is why I didn't carpet yet.

Ok, well that's it. Like I said, it sounds great. Version 2.0 is going to be a down/forward firing set-up through the ski pass.

what did you use to secure your amp on the top deck like that. I'm thinking about doing that with my 4 channel

It sounds great. It really murders the lows. Overall I am pretty darned pleased with it. Turns out that this box specs out perfectly for a pair of my e8's too so I may make a new baffle and try them in there. This was really just an experimental box but with such great results, I am going to tweak the design and try it with the sub and ports firing through the ski pass.


For now I just have regular ol' sheet metal screws holding it up there with a little rubber grommet in between the amp and the deck. It seems to holding pretty well, but when I pull the deck out to cut my ports in it I am going to use nuts and bolts.
