This is the front of it all carpeted. Not to happy with how it came out, i didnt have a proper razor and sissors. had to work with what i had.

What's that tuned to? Looks like a long port with a lot of corners

Curious on how this box will come out to sound in a bolt.

Two sundown e8's ftw!:

Front View of the box, right around 15 square inches of port, 1.1 cubic feet after displacements, tuned to 34 hertz:

My thoughts overall, the two e8's get way louder than the one we had in there obviously. They hit pretty hard. i have them on double the rms at 400 watts a piece and they are taking them like champs. i know its not the cleanest install ever, but he didnt want to cut up his carpet and having the wires running along the side was the best i could do.

That box is so tiny! What happened to original box?

haha that was just for one. the reason the other was so big was because the cubic feet was so little the port had to be real long. so since this box was for two, i could make the port shorter while still getting the same desired tuning.
