View Full Version : Box question for 2 Soundqubed SDC2.5 15's

I'm pretty new to this, but I'm pretty solid in wanting to learn how to build my own boxes, I want something for my budget and currently that is far less than the space I'm willing to use. I'm looking at running 2 Soundqubed SDC2.5 15's or 2 HDS215 subs in the back seat of my extended cab silverado using an RE Audio CTX 1600.2. The space I want to work with is 54in wide, 26.5in high, 24in deep ~19 cubic feet, I want both the subs and the port facing the seats, the square port would be 25in high and 8in wide and about 11in deep. I was wondering would utilizing that space for only 2 15's be worthwhile since I'm not using the space for anything else, or will it actually hurt my subs performance in such a big box? If so, how far should I downsize from this box, roughly?

look at the manufactures specs and box sizes they recommend for their particular subs.

I've done those subs in 9cubes net, no reason to go crazy big just because you have the room. What about 3 15's?

Okay, the 3 15's sound like a better plan, thanks for answering my question. :)

Try to make sure all 3 subs are positioned the same over the port, otherwise you might have loading issues...

Heres what I have on Torres for the 3 15's, how feasible is this for 3 hds 315's? it looks pretty stable on WinISD, I haven't drawn up any 3D images yet for the design but they will be spaced as follows, both the subs and the port will face forward, the 2 end 15's will be centered and put fairly close to the ends the middle 15 will be below the port and towards the bottom more so than the 2 end 15's. I want something that will be one of the best budget spl options without walling off my extended cab silverado. I would love to hear any criticism or suggestions, thanks for the help! :D

When you say positioned the same over the port, does what I describe above fit that description? also what do you mean loading issues?

pretty much scrapped the idea since I'm changing vehicles now, but this was the VERY ROUGH idea I was going for.

trust me man. in that EXT cab do fire your subs up, and the port to the side. leave about 6-8"s for the sub to breath. You will be much happier trust me

your design will work, but as suggested subs up/port to the side is normally the way to go...
