I ran my solo x on a kicker kx2500 in 4.75^3 an it was doing pretty well. What are you wanting out of it??

more SPL

If you want more SPL, you need more port area. I'm running mine (daily) in 5.25 each after displacement (roughly what you are) and I have 4x24 slot ports on each one. 18in deep. Try 5x16 18in deep and don't do an L. You should see impressive gains getting that L out of your port and increases port opening. You might want to tune a bit higher too, Xs love 34-36. You are also running a ton of power for 5.5 cu. tuned to 32. It may be quiet because it isn't cooling properly. I tried running 5k to mine and they hated it. Get much louder on 3k for the both.

With that kind of power, just rebuild for 4.5cu after displacement and for and do a 4x20 slot port, depth will be per the tuning you want to get to. Problem solved.

Do that then. Also pay attention to box aiming and position in your car. Just the physical layout and direction you aim sub and port can be a huge difference (like 5 or 6 db)

Post pics of your trunk and current setup you may get some good ideas from guys with experience with whatever you're driving.

26 L x 20 D x 17.5 H

Double face the top, slot port on back 4 H x 20 W x ? D per your tuning. Use winisd w/ those dimensions to get port depth for 34-36hz tuning. I would but don't have it at work.

I don't have that program if you get at me when you get home that would be great

can anyone help me figure out the depth for it to be tuned to 34-36hz

just google it, it's freeware (free to dl). However:

First, port took up more displacement than I thought. Build 26x20x20. That's 6cu gross and 4.6cu after displacement.

Winisd hates slot ports I found out by trying to play with these dimensions for you. Do a 3in tall port 20in wide and 18in deep. Should put you right at 35hz. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I really think winisd is off. Box

I can do a design for you if you like. Let me know if you would be interested in doing that. :D
