Anyone have experience (refs please) designing transmision-line enclosures? I' wanted to try to cram one into a Festiva :laugh: This sounds silly ofcourse but I'm dead serious about doing this

This T-Line would have to be MASSIVE. Just wondering but what makes you want to do a T-line in the first place?

Want something completely unique and challenging. I was also considering a horn enclosure but idk if i would have room for either in the car. The whole interior will be stripped to bare-bones. I will put in a metal bomberseat on the driverside and the rest of the space will be for the enclosure, amps and batts. I want the port on my passenger side. Custom driverside MDF dash , sound deadening etc.

A horn is a SQ enclosure if Im not mistaken

Ya the t-line wouldn't work just because the box would have to be HUGE. You think about 4th order or 6th order bandpass?

yea, i thought about all of that. the thing is, i know next to nothing about all of these enclosures. I just want something loud, big and unique

well 6th order would be good for you imo. Just get someone to design you a box and you should be set because building them is not usually TOO difficult. Also, what are your max dimensions of the box?

There is no way to fit a t-line box into that little car. That box has to be at least 20-30 cubes

Would be pretty sweet to see one though

They've been tried before with disappointing results.

I havent purchased the vehicle yet. The Festivas I've come across in the area are trashed. I want to find one in decent condition. Next time i find one local for sale I'll go measure it so I can get better results with my threads lol

So how does 4th order bp compare to 6th? and what are the pros and cons of the two? how would they compare to ported and sealed in this giant walled style enclosure?

i've never really considered BP in the past because i hear they only perform in a very narrow frequency range (which im sure is perfect for spl) but will it sound terrible with music? (obviously not shootin for the worlds best SQ with this build lol but I still want to be able to jam once in a while

Build a T-Line around your car and it might work out for you.

I built a T-line for my 18" BTL and it actually wasn't much bigger then the 8cuft ported box. Do the math you could probably do it. Probably won't be easy, but what fun is that.

I'll probably just to a ported or bandpass for now. If I can save money, I'll get the dodge ext. cargo van i want and we'll do something nuts in there :P
