    I'll give the 300watts a shot once I get it squared away with a DMM etc etc.

    box is pretty cool though :{|

    Its not going to take much to get that sub moving at full excursion. Not much at all. Just dont want you to bottom it out horribly thinking you can throw 1600 watts to it and it just be ok.

    Just looked over your measurements and assuming you used 3/4", you are just under 8 cubes before ports and sub dispacement, so that will help a little, but that box is still way too big.

    this^ after displacements its probably around 7cubes...which is still double of what you need.

    After calculating the wood+woofer displacement+port displacement, I'm still sitting at about 7.8-7.9cft.

    Re: Skar audio VVX15 8cft box buildness

    If these are external dimensions that you posted: 33" deep x 15" high x 34", it comes to 7.9 before sub or port displacement. What size ports are those and how long btw?

    Proud to see someone actually building a proper sized box.

    Yeah, don't listen to these guys. If you want it to slam like no one around, keep the size, keep it on RMS power, hit play and enjoy. If you end up getting enough power to run two, build another proper box and try to maintain that same size per sub. You'd be amazed at the results.

    Then again, just ask someone local like IonRL. I'm not loud, I wouldn't know what I'm talking about...

    Re: Skar audio VVX15 8cft box buildness

    While I agree that the box seems rather large they perform rediculously if done right... Port area plays a BIG role on boxes this big. I'm thinking of doing 3.5-4ft^3 per 15" on my next build right now they're getting 3ft^3 each D:

    Also I wouldn't out more than 600w to that subwoofer in 8ft^3 I think people on the forums are assuming you'll do almost twice that as SKARS are known to take 1k+. Even with the smallest box possible for that subwoofer I wouldn't put more than 800w to it daily lol. I like SKAR's but they're no SA.
