    4.618cf gross, what to do?

    I have a total of 4.618 cf (1in mdf) or 5 cf (.75in mdf). I am looking to compete semi-seriously. I will start at more local shows and if I do well, I will invest more time and effort. I am looking at USACi as it has more shows in my general area. I will use the 40.1 so I will be in the 301-900 class. They don't have basic stock anymore (atleast from the 2006 rulebook)

    Anyways, my question is this, with such limited airspace, what is my best option? It seems I could do 1 15, 2 12s, or 2 10s (and what type). I am not really concerned with price as I understand such financial commitments are necessary,

    Re: 4.618cf gross, what to do?

    im not really familiar w/ USACi rules or competitors or anything, but...

    1 - 15'' AQ HD3
    1 - 15'' RE MT
    1 - 15'' TC4hp
    1 - 15'' DD9515

    i think a 40.1 would be kind of overkill for all those setups though.

    Thanks,

    I wasn't sure which was better, more cone area or more box space.

    So...which is better, 1 15 or 1 12? The 12 will more than likely be the solo-x carlton is selling.

    Since carlton sold all his 12s, it is now between two 10s or two 12s, any tips?

    Most 15s I see like 4-5cf each, I guess it is a joke I do not get.

    Usually for SPL...boxes tend to be smaller. Of course that depends on the sub, vehicle, and applications. I know when I had an SX my numbers were alot higher in a box that was 1.5 cubes as oposed to a 2.3 cub Daily box.

    when designing a vehicle specificly for SPL use... you usually make LOTS of boxes to see what type of numbers you get from those said box

    I see...and to think I was considering 10s...thanks for the suggestion!

    It's a trunk car, but I can make the 15s fit ported, it will be a b*tch and they will have to be slot ported to the side, but I can make it work.
