Hey guys just a 19 year old kid looking to increase my knowledge in car audio and get some advice. My current set up is a 2008 Police Interceptor crown victoria with Hfi Hifonics 2000d mono amp, cvx 15 4 ohm kicker, stock speakers, 2 gauge wire. Im looking into doing 2 cvx 15s and i need some box ideas lol

Welcome, you will get some good ideas alright ..lol...

On a serious note, list your goal and your budget, you will get some good advice.

For the extra kicker probably around 230 plus i gotta get a custom box thatl cost around 300 probably. My goal is to be able to do hair tricks with two 15s in my vehicle. My budget right now is about 800-1000 more to put into everything. If i WERE to sell my existing set up i could maybe get 500 for it probably not even that. Idk if my goal is possible with this budget but I know the box is the main thing. I've looked into maybe getting a quote from Dave the box guy but itl probably b to much

so roughly 1400 max with your budget? and a hair trick, very interesting, you want ALOT of air moving now, how much space do you have, with that budget i'd go overkill myself with 2 18's but that would require a very large enclosure

Yeah around there would b right if i did decide to sell my setup which idk if i will. And correct on the Air movement. My one cvx is hitting pretty decent right now and sounds good but i would like it to b way louder. I can measure my trunk within the next few days here to let you know the space available thanks for the input and what not. I am looking to keep everything in the trunk obviously without removing seats. I've heard and seen people porting a 4th order threw the rear deck but idk if this is necessary for what i want since the price to have someone build one is rediculously expensive. I have built one box before but trying to build a 4th order will b a challenge and a half

does your back seat have the arm rest that comes down and can see into the trunk?

03-21-2013, 02:44 AM
That's the problem it does not have that

wall build in your backseat?? :naughty:
jk man you could cut into your rear deck, I did that with a Lincoln town car... the top deck I cut through the foam and stuff to get air flowing into the cabin... im not sure if that would be a option for you...

juanmgarza26
03-21-2013, 02:50 AM
oh and your estimated 1400 would be just for your substage? or your wanting to upgrade all around?

hey man im in minneapolis so if you ever need a box let me know. usually pretty cheap

Yeah i would do a wall if i didn't have a budget plus I'd rather have a back seat lol and yeah all around. I planned on getting a kinetik bettery some second skin for the trunk and as for speakers ill just do those later on. But yeah budget for another sub, box, battery, deadner, and the big 3 thats all i can think of the top if my head. As for alternators i have a 200 amp alternator which im sure ill b fine with but if i can figure out a good alternator that has 250 plus or figure out i need more than the 200 ill consider the alternator as well but id rather b able to stick with the 200

cool cool, to get some air moving i'd go with 15's or 18's that take 1000+ rms bro

Alright for sure thanks man. Do you build them or help people build em? Just looking for the cheapest most effective box i can get. I just sold my car so (not the Vick haha) im going to possibly b ordering another 15 soon and will be interested in getting a box in the near future

03-21-2013, 03:04 AM
Yeah for sure i mean the cvx's say they do 1000 rms so that was my plan to hook two up to my 2000 mono hifonics at 1ohm but if anything ive heard getting a 2500 or 3000 is possible to use for these it will push them harder but idk if thats a great idea

juanmgarza26
03-21-2013, 03:07 AM
build a couple boxes here in my house when I have friends who want a install, I wont ship because of funds and I wouldn't want to go overkill with pricing so yeah, if you do a ported and cut open the deck you can get air into your cabin without going with a crazy a$$ box, subs look into the aq 3.0, sundown z series, or skar zvx series, look in the used classifieds on here you can score a pair from some guys on here, look around a bit more before you spend your money man, also incriminator death penalty's, fi, ssa, its all good stuff man

yeah a lot of the brands I listed are rated conservatively, the z series theres a neighbor of mine who runs 2 with 4000 rms, but your power will have to be CLEAN if you want to go above their rated

Ok cool cool so your saying I should try and sell the cvx? And good point ill be sure to not go to fast

Xp71
03-21-2013, 03:15 AM
Yeah true that and anything over 2000 I'd probably need to look into the alternator for sure and i guess my car and all the other cars r a ***** for the alternators belt slipping at least mechman said that

juanmgarza26
03-21-2013, 03:20 AM
Ok cool cool so your saying I should try and sell the cvx? And good point ill be sure to not go to fast

look at the price difference of a cvx and a aq 3.0 then try and see the size comparison of the two subs both rated for 1000 rms see if one can take more than 1000...

How much for that battery? How long has it been sitting and what's it's resting voltage?


Also if you we're talkin to me before me and my buddy build boxes now and again for people. Haven't done anything to crazy just simple slot ports.
