    I say real world testing is the best way to find out.

    Re: Alex's Silverado

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking.

    If it doesn't do what I want, I'll just keep adding port length until the hair gets

    I doubt you will have that much trouble pulling a hair trick

    I really hope not, lol

    I finally did it with the Z's after changing the amp and headunit level ratios. Such a small detail made a huge difference

    However, I got to thinking. If I just make the baffle 4" thick and don't add anything extra for more port length, I'm tuned to ~30hz. I think that would meter really well, but would I still be able to do crazy hairtricks with a 30hz tuning and next to no port length? My last box was tuned to 27hz and had like 42" of length, which is why I ask. I don't care if it's a stupid question, because I guess this build log is kinda wrecked already



    EDIT: Or, is real world testing the best way to find out? I could easily add length to the port later on if it doesn't work out well

    I like low tuned big box. My truck is tuned to 30hz and my next wall will be tuned to 25hz or lower... You don't loose output tuned low if you do it right, prime example is the Hhr, it's tuned to 25hz and does 155db at 23hz and 160.5db at 35hz. ur pretty close to Michigan you should come hear the Hhr one of these days.

    Those are 2x4's turned sideways. The side is 3" of solid wood. Glued and screwed, plus will be covered with resin inside and out. Very sturdy to say the least

    Thats a lot of work, very good.

    At that stage it looked like your truck was having a sauna installed!

    Alex's Silverado

    So are you screwing the 2x4's together and are you using any glue ? No criticism from it's a serious question. Anyway, the concept seems legit , let us know how it turns out.

    Yeah, true. I do like the idea of having a short port so you can look in and see the motors easily though

    I drove half way to Tennesse and back on Friday without my mom knowing, but Michigan is much further, lol. I'd definitely have to have her approval

    Just use the thickness of the baffle as the port. Lengthen if necessary. 30 cubes at 30hz with your power would be nasty.
