    Hey, Im glad you got the chance to get a demo of it. I have been talking to Visualhype during the entire process and I am very glad he had the chance to finally get some info for you guys. Hopefully it will put some things into perspective for a few people on here.......
    As long as voltage is not exceeded, it will do just fine as it is.

    No, gradually work them up to the same voltage level as the limits of the design as it should be done. Sine sweeps and tones are usually a higher level recording than music records, so it may need to be lowered a bit on volume for those. Again, increase it gradually until peak voltage is hit. Anyone should be doing this, not just you. If you do sine signals on full tilt, you may end up distorting or damaging some things if it is not meant to handle it. Depends on the equipment and design all together.

    BTW, the box for my two 12 inch Type R's you designed for me turned out great I messed up on a couple aspects of the build such as the port supports and the second layer of MDF on the top (because I didn't have enough room in my trunk for two layers) but I am super satisfied with how it turned out and how much better the lows sound vs. using the prefabricated box I had before. Unfortunately my amp fried so I will have to wait a bit longer to pick up a new one :/ Anyways thanks alot Jason for the design! I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know that is in need of a box/design.

    Would truck bed liner help like "stiffen" up the box like a form of bracing (not fully using it as a brace) but if I sprayed it on the box would it make it more solid?

    I was just wondering for the fact of when I have it on full tilt looking into the trunk I get an odd wood sound, but theres no air leaking, maybe I need to screw it in some more with more screws. Once I get the second if etc etc ill pole brace it between the woofers.

    Just to kind of update, im going to be looking into getting some expanding foam or related to seal my trunk from cabin, any recommendations would be cool too.

    Re: Skar audio VVX15 8cft box buildness

    So I've sealed most of the cracks with expanding foam so far so good (minus filling the rear deck yet and the side with my power wires running through) The spare tire well I forgot to put the tire and top back on when building the box in my trunk, would not covering this with wood/plastic/foam etc hurt any output?

    Just kind of showing the foam idea, the boxes face is really ugly (right now) once it all cures etc I'll shave it off and paint the box all black again.
