    2 Obsidian Audio 12"s 4.3cft box~33hz

    *Edit* OA12 plan fell through, snagged myself a Sundown Audio 15" Zv2 for $250.00, it's missing the sundown logo, 100% working Dual 2ohm.

    Sundown 15" Zv2 off an SK1500.1 @1ohm
    Box:

    Wood at the time, I cut some more and got the bottom, side and back glued:


    Port colored red:


    I plan on doing a dark stain on the box /drool. Stay tuned.

    looks good. you should flare that sonotube tho. cut every half inch about an inch downward and glass/tape over the holes.

    Wilk do, anyone have 2 12s for trade since this deal most likely fell through? I'll trade a ppi art series (worth 150-200)+my vvx15 (135-150).

    Fits like a glove, I'll play around with box position IE. back of trunk firing forward closer to back seats (right now) firing forward etc etc.

    4.3 seems a little large for the zv2... I would put it n about 3.2 cu ft with 18sq inches of port per cube, tuned to 34

    I had already had it half made by the time it was said and done, obviously 1.3cft won't hurt the woofer since I had a VVX15 in 8.5cubes.
