    looks cool but fail on the small *** ports man! all that work for what? it doesnt even look like there is nearly enough port length u have there! looks like 5" per!

    does it even hit below 45hz????

    all im saying is great job on the box bad on the port diameter choice...

    is that before displacement ?? wow you fit more back there than i was told i ever could you have given me hope was it hard to work there ?? i looking to fit 4 before displacement tuned to 36htz
    4.3 before displacement. It was a pain to get it all taped off and get the first layer of fiberglass down, that's why I quit after one layer and let it dry, took it out and then added more layers for strength. If I were to do it again I would tough it out and do all the layers at once in the car. The way I did it caused it to warp a little from the heat of all the added layers on the thin mold.


    I molded around the studs.

    Ports are 3in, not 2. Thought they were 2 but just measured. I really didn't know it would make that big of a difference if I went with a smaller diameter. I'm not that experienced with that sort of thing. As for how it sounds, I don't have any complaints. Hits the lows well, sounds deep. If it would really be worth while I could change to bigger ports without too much trouble.

    should of done some research...you do realize that the length of the port effects how the sub sounds to you?

    I can't really say that I knew exactly what I was doing on the ports. I really did cheap out on not using aeros, I know, but was trying to get by without much money. I talked to the guys at DD about ported vs sealed given my volume, and they suggested ported and gave me the specs for the ports if I were to use 3in diameter.

    What would I gain by using larger ports?

    you have to be able to hear the air getting "forced" out of those ports. Like a chuffing sound...

    Re: 98 Trans Am full install with DD, Boston, Kicker and fiberglass

    I was worried I would have some noise, since I kinda rigged them up instead of using aeros, but I didn't consider having them too small would do it, well, having them 3in anyway. I don't hear it if they do, but I could be wrong. I will take a good listen and let you know.

    No, not for comp. Never meant for it to be for comp. Just wanted to try and give myself a system and install that was a few steps up from the basic wooden speaker box covered in carpet.
