    Box Build for 4 Skar VVX 15's Monster Kerf Port

    Build this box in a couple hours this morning for a local customer from Tulsa, OK. Box is 12.5 cubes with a big kerfed port that's 162 sq. in. tuned to 32 hz for 4 Skar Audio VVX 15's running off an AQ3500 at 0.5 ohms. All of this will be going in a 4 door Chevy Blazer. Guy won't have the last 2 subs for another week or so, so it will be a while before we get numbers/videos. Box is fully resined on the inside with 2x4 bracing. Round overs on all corners, with flush mounts for the subs. Anyway, here's the pics.














    Questions? Comments?

    If I may ask, what is the point of a kerfed port over a standard port?

    Score Update!!!!

    Brain (customer) went to his first show today with the new box. With brand new subs that have maybe 10 minutes play time on them, and no time to tune (box position, gain setting, frequency), he pulled out a 149.2 at 48 hz!! A couple of people at the show will be getting me videos within the next day or 2, so will be showing some nasty flex. Customer is VERY happy with this setup, and i can't wait to get over to his place and play around with it to get that 150. It's in there, just have to find it.

    Videos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just a couple of videos taken at the CarToys show in Tulsa yesterday. Ended up with a 149.2 at 48 hz with absolutely no tuning or testing. This ride is in dyer need of sound deadening on the roof and back hatch. Already broken a few things on the vehicle and it's only been playing a couple of days. Anyway, enjoy the videos. Will hopefully be getting some nice HD videos next weekend.
