    Beginning my Mojo Build- First attempt ever

    Ok well last night mobeious came up with the box design

    It's gonna hold my 2- 15" Memphis Mojo M3 subs. As far as the amp is going I'm gonna be running an Autotek Mean Machine 4000. Also, electric I'm gonna do the Big 3 (upgrading the wire from the alternator to the battery, the batteries ground wire, and the wire from the engine to the alternator all to 0/1 awg gauge). Also, I'm gonna be running 2 Odyssey PC2250 batteries with probably 2 Stinger SR200 amp relays. Of course, everything will be wired in 0/1 awg wiring and the size of the box is roughly ~ 8.7 cubic feet with a port size of (hopefully if everything goes right) 4.5 width by 16 height. I may carpet it I'm not sure, if I don't I'm thinking maybe fiberglass the outside and paint it to give it a shiny look. I plan on building the box Friday (just purchased wood and a jigsaw) So if all goes according to my plan I should have it completed by June.

    Items still needed-
    About $500 worth of sound deadening material (second skin, I'm gonna go all out)
    0/1 gauge wiring
    Carpet/Fiberglass material
    4 Channel amp
    6.5" component speakers with crossovers
    A bigger trunk LOL

    well I'm gonna brace the middle between the subs. Where else should I brace?
    Thanks, I'm hoping to be up in the 150's. Oh by the way it's going into a 2007 Hyundai Sonata

    sweet guess

    GL with the subs and hitting your goal....I see 150 as an obtainable goal, but 150 is always tough in a car.....

    once again where will the box be facing?

    Yeah, don't see that doing 150, but mid to upper 140's. Buddy has 2 15 Mojo's off the 4k Memphis amp and hits right at 150 off the tl.................in an expedition, lol!

    Yes they are

    Yeah but most of the wood is already cut (thanks to home depot)

    but 150 is always tough in a car.....
    Why is it harder in a car?

    Usually in most cases it is harder in a trunked car. If you have a hatch, then you would probably be over 150, but trunks hold a lot of bass in, even if your seats go down.

    Re: Beginning my Mojo Build- First attempt ever

    What's it tuned to? It'll be hard getting to 150 without an spl oriented box. If this box it tuned below 35hz for a dialy setup, don't count on a 150, although it is possible.
