Hmm, thats a toughy especially if you want all the subs to have the same airspace. You could always mount two subs facing forwards and one subs facing up, but i don't know if that will have an adverse effect on how the subs will sound. :confused:

i thought of that..im going to share airspace i think. i dont know how it would sound with two firing back and one firing up..

That would simplify things up ALOT......

Actually, i just thought of something. Make the box angled so you can fit all three subs facing forwards like this..

I'm not sure if you could get that with the dimensions you have, but its another idea.

What size of mounting holes do you need? I wonder If you could fit three in a triangle style layout on the top.

Is that 30 inches outside or inside length?

im gonna take some pics of this kids box/install i did for him, i ended up firing two subs towards taillights and one sub into the car itself. pretty loud for being cheap rf subs, the box made a huge difference than what he had before.

Your going to get cancellation if you mount the subs on different plains like that...A crx style does not mean subs up BTW...

build the box so its 30x20 on top, and stagger the subs. they will fit if you stagger them. build it however tall you need for the airspace the subs need.
