i have about 2.8 cubes to work with without sub and port displacement. i used the calculator on the12volt.com and it said i needed 1 3 inch wide aero about 6 inches long, does that sound right? seems aweful short?

because its 2 subs do i need to use 2 of them?

otherwise it said do a slot port 7.5 inches high 2 inches wide and about 12 inches long. either sound right?

What kind of tuning does Kicker recommend? I'd try a pair of full length 4" aeros. A single 3" isn't nearly enough port.

Too small of port area and not enough room for those 2 subs.

Ok so would that much airspace be to much to go sealed?

do 1 ported and it will get louder and lower than 2 sealed.

i would like to but the max dims are 39x21x9 which is really odd and going with 2 sealed will be easier. but would 3 cubes for the pair sealed be about right?

i believe its an eagle talon or one of those DSM cars. but where he wants the box thats the MAX dims.

So he box mostly made. It's 2.9 cubes before displacement. Kicker recommends 1 cube each. Is that to much air space? Also I'd I went ported, would a 2x7.5 inch tall port 13 inches long work for 1 ported or is that to much airspace/wrong port area/length?



Thanks so much!!!!!!

Need help quick may just brace the middle and make it separate chambers to give em 1.3 each and call it close enough.

Ive got a box i bought for my 10" l7's you can have it for very cheap as its just sitting in my garage and you pay shipping via whatever method you want it shipped. Ill get you some pictures if you are interested. Im 60 miles SE of Chicago (46360 zip) if you want to price shipping also.

Its custom built for kicker subs and it is good - great shape.

Atrend 10" DUAL VENTED SPL KICKER SPL-10DVK

It worked well for my 10"s L7's, but i upgraded to a 15".

Already building one thanks anyways.

How does a port 4.5 wide 7.5 tall and 40 inches long sound? At 1.7 cubes. On the 12volt.com it says it would be tuned to about 33hz. What do y'all think?

Are you trying to put 2 subs or 1 sub in that box?

If you can, I would do 2 3in or 1 4in round/aero port if its 1 sub

it has to be slot port and no if i go ported it will only be one sub

Then what you have should work ok. That 40inch long port is going to eat up a lot of space, thats why I was saying go with the round ports, because they would only need to be 15 or 16in long to get the tune you wanted.

right but with the port i said the sub would see 1.8 cubes that thats enough i think. is my port area and lenth ok? i just havent designed my own before and dont wanna F this up and at one time someone had said that the calculator on the12volt isnt that accurate.

the calc on the 12v is pretty accurate, the re calc is the one that is not accurate. The port area and length you have are fine. I've never messed with a square Kicker so I don't know exactly how well it will work, but it will work.

i think it will work fine, its gonna be on RMS power only so it should be ok

Id do 1.25ft^3 and tune it to 34hz. using a single 4" aeroport.

I can't use an aero at this point. Just want a second opinion on if my port area and length seem ok.
