View Full Version : Need Help With Sub Box SPL only

05-03-2004, 12:21 AM
Alright this is my first post, ive never built a box before, or pretty much anything at all. Im looking into getting two 15" 600/1200 watt Volfenhang subs, these are the subs stats:
Continuous Power RMS: 600W
Peak Power: 1200W
Sensitivity (1W/1m): 91 dB
Impedance: 4 ohms
Fs: 30 Hz
Qts: 0.526
Vas: 1.98 cu. ft.
Qes: 0.614
Qms: 7.698
Mounting Depth: 6-5/16''
I want my subs to be as loud as i can get 'em to be, SQ doesnt matter
From what i've gathered from just reading around, to get the loudest most obnoxious sounding speakers, i should get the biggest box i can (within reason) and to get it ported. Im putting this box in the back of a 98 ford eXplorer, i have plenty of room; 40 width X 25 depth X 17 height. If building a ported box would be too difficult, i can always just buy one, i just need to know which one.
Thanks in advance to anyone who wasted their time reading all of this, and to anyone with ADD, thanks for trying ! :)
or i could get these if they are worth the extra money
this is the amp im looking at http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=2475588381&category=38638#ebayphotohosting

I can design or build a box for you if you're interested. "loudest most obnoxious sounding" isn't usually my domain, however I'm sure I can come up with something :)

Well, before you get a box, you better pick out some different equipment. The stuff you picked out is bottom of the barrell flea market stuff.

Tell us your budget and we can come up with something much better for you.
