Re: ***1999 Tracer Sealed Off Enclosure Build***
Everything comes down to install! You get the haters Endofdays, because you do act like a durr, durr kid a lot of the time. I am only trying to shed light on your install and help you out. Maybe take you own as my pet project to help you see the light!
Also to anybody says the X's can't get loud, you have never heard them! In sealed applications, they sound wonderful and I have seen 1 12" do a 143 on a TL and was one of the nicer sounding subs I have heard.........in a trunked vehichle facing back. That was on 800rms to boot.
I will say they don't like much more power than 1000rms each though. The R's do seem to take the power better for some reason.
Endofdays, just do your thing and build your thang up. I am interested to see how it comes out and what kind of numbers you will get. And just to clear things up, you will never get rid of all the rattles, unless you want to spend a **** ton of money. Yeah, it won't rattle as much sealing it off from the trunk, but they will find new spots to rattle, trust me. When I sealed off my cavalier, it rattled the rear deck like crazy, then the doors and everywhere else. Trunk, not so much. I was going to invest in some deadener for the inside of the cabin and rear deck, but ended up switching it back and dealing with it for a couple months till I sold the car and bought my Focus ST. I now have my subs facing back and invested in about 400 dollars in sound deadener in fatmat and Second skin and it still rattles, but not nearly as much. Is now tolerable and people don't notice it much and even helped with the sound some. If you are not happy with how this setup goes, that is what I would try to do. Take it all out and put in around 70sqft in the entire trunk, rear deck upper and lower and then hit up the doors and floors with the rest. I have used about 150sqft of deadener in doing that so far. I have about 70sqft left and this coming summer doing the floors and then the roof and getting some LL for the floors, deflex pad and sealing the doors better with some roof flashing.
