looks nice one thing most people dont realize about these subs is they were designed to work in low space applications could have gotten away with a smaller box

We want our space man. We have two of the 15's in a small 6 cubic foot box and the low end is chocked on it severely (box wasn't designed for those woofers). It'll pick up the notes for sure but doesn't have that full volume that I want starting around the low 30's. If you can't play in the mid to low 20's on full power then we don't want it.

I have mine in a 4.36cube box still hits down to 30hz and its tuned to 38hz main reason why I had to have the box so small is cause my trunk wouldn't allow for a bigger box but still works great and hit a 136.2 on music with the seats up granted yes bigger box will make it louder just saying you can get away with a smaller box

Vids coming soon. I just can't explain to you how two "400" watt 18's sound in a box like this. 13 cubes works well if you listen to rap and heavy bass dubstep for these woofers.
