Not bad..Where did you get the laptop DB down load???Ive been wanting to get one.Id put some kind of Deadner in the truck to keep it from moving so much, and you should always cover your lisc,plate for safety measures(attemptive Thieves) But pretty cool.I like it,,Nicely done, and the art work on the box is Deff.Original:santa:

Nice, but I thought you'd be higher score wise with all tht power and electrical. What frequency? If in the lower 30s that'd make sense then

I'm kind of the same, I just finished my VVX15 box which is almost 9.8cft and it does awesome on the lows but if I were to meter it I'm not sure what I'd score.

No i meant at what frequency did you peak at? what you tune at and what you peak at are usually two different numbers...

I think he meant what Frequency did you burp at?
And I'd suggest tuning a little higher like... 31 or 32, you'll still be able to hit the lows just fine.
And I think you'll see a definite improvement with a better amp, something more efficient at making power, even though you've got solid electrical. And some deadener always helps, it's one of the best investments you can make.

If you burped at 41hz an did that number I'd honestly expect a little more with the power but not bad since you're tuned low.

I would love to have zero flex forreal.
But not to much to do

There is..... but it's been proven time and time again to work terribly, and have poor effects, and much more if it is needed to achieve similar results... so much so, that it typically costs more expensive than the right stuff in the first place. You can get a roll of AudioTechnix B-stock for like $60 shipped and it will be more than enough for what you need.

^This 'roux has B-Stock AudioTechnix in his and hes pleased with it.

Deadener will certainly help that flex and the rattles I am sure you're having. And it's almost always a gain when metering sealed. You'd be surprised how much good one roll of 60mil will do in your trunk.

Also, as far you losing when your buddy was holding down on the trunk; that is almost a sure sign that your pressure is getting trapped back there. With your port back and that box being so big, the pressure is bouncing around in the trunk and not getting into the cabin. When the trunk flexes, it lets a little of the pressure out, and therefore some of the cancellation. If you are so inclined, I would rebuild and try to make the box a little shorter (if you have the room) and do port to the side.

If you want to chase numbers, get that sub and port forward and utilize having seats that fold down.
