someone mentioned a kicker l7 15 required 7 cuft before any displacement . so around 6.0 -6.5cu ft net
i think realistically 3.5 cu ft net tuned to 32 with 3in wide slot port would be ideal.
anyone have a idea of size this sub preforms well in ??
the enclosure is going in a ford fusion 2007 iirc

i also think that 7.0 cu box for a l7 15 would it not lower rms rateing by more then half?
maybe for spl but not music.



thanks in advance

The L7 wants a big box. No smaller than 5 cf. I think what was recommended to you is about right. If you want a smaller box go with a different sub.
