    I run a pair of Skar 15"s in 8.25 cubes and I was told it was on the big side... Is there physically enough room on the baffle to mount a second one?

    Once I actually get the vvx from Kevin I'll measure a second 15 and make sure before hand if not I'll experiment a little.

    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.
    Yes, it isn't really a smart thing to take woofers and go over their RMS rating when using boxes this big. That's the great thing about large enclosures, though. They get stupid loud, have a huge response window, and do it on less power than recommended boxes that are usually in the 3-4 cu. range.



    Stupid Loud.

    Since its being built in my trunk, any recommendatiobs on gluing/caulking the lid on? And something heavy enough to apply decent pressure.

    Even though its only a 1500.1 but I should be ordering my Dual +/- inputs from Toolmaker in the next week, and ordered (regardless of it being half CCA/OFC) 2 Cadence 1/0 amp kits. I have 1 more thing planned nothing fancy but it will be mounted to the box, can't say if I'm getting it or not still talking to Toolmaker about it.

    Got my 2 runs wired up, I LOST 2 of my last ring terminals to finish the Fuse>Battery wire so I had to wait which is why thats empty.


    also ordered my VVX15 once they come in stock monday I'll get it asap and get this shiztnat banging.

    Edit: and no the fuse boxes are not JUST ziptied, thats just to keep the cover more secure, its screwed and likely locktighted to the fuse box cover.
