    Idea on subwoofer placement

    If I were to put my two 15" avalanches on the rear deck, with the port in between them, facing up and a little bit out on an angle like a normal rear deck, would I suffer any SQ/SPL problems due to this? Or any other problems, for that matter?

    Id use a sawzall to make enough room, and yes i would tint the windows for protection from theft.

    Thanks
    Brian

    I was just thinking how would 2 15" avalanches react so close to the rear window? SPL would probably be better in the cab than if the port and full speaker were in the trunk. Wouldnt you think? Your rear deck would become like a suv rear in a sense.

    I really wonder the same thing! Makes me want to try it

    I'll do some more measuring tomorrow and see if I have the guts to do it

    subs usually work best in a box, you could even try the "trunk" of your car

    Re: Idea on subwoofer placement

    There's only one problem with that... If I was going to port, I was looking to tune to 26hz. that's a HUGE port... and I was also going with 7 cubes NET. so if I make a plug, that turns out being somewhere around 9.5 cubes if I plug the port...

    Anyway, Audiolife, what do you think about the whole mounting on the rear deck idea?

    Thanks

    Re: Idea on subwoofer placement

    lol you can still do it (the plug) although with what you have and want to do i would question to why.... you have excellent speakers and you want to turn it into a street humper only car. when you get everything going ill put 20 bucks up that you wont like a low tuned vented box mated up with the rest of your system lol i dont care "how sq" the woofer with any mid output level or above it will get muddy UNLIKE the rest of the system. those woofers can go large sealed so why not do it (you will get a substantial gain off the rear deck glass if its shaped like i think) and do a ported box tuned a little higher..say mid to high 30's should net you a mid to high 140 score at least while still being able to sound like it should when you want.

    Re: Idea on subwoofer placement

    Yeah it's a standard rear glass... 1995 Toyota Camry.

    I might as well try 5 cubes sealed. Just to see how I like it. Not do anything fancy, just make the box out of unfinished MDF and throw it up on the rear deck like I want to.

    If that's not loud enough for me I'll do something crazy like 8 cubes or whatever tuned low.

    (...i cant believe someone made me change my mind that quickly...)

    But I guess it's either do that or let these subs sit here on my bedroom floor all beautiful-like

    Let me know what you think I should do!

    THX!!!

    Re: Idea on subwoofer placement

    in it since 89, first car was done by a local that took 3rd in usac sq world finals, second car by a local shopfound a new shop re did that car (94ish) loved it went to college for eet (electronics engineering technologies) redid that car again see pic. got in a head on crash totaled that so i bought the car in the thread http://forums.caraudio.com/vb/showthread.php?t=97234. took 4th at sbn 2nd at midwest regionals. after that i worked in sales at a place called lehmans. was doing good there but me and pat (same one from kinetik) started a 12 volt distributorship. we then became reps for kove audio art us amps....didnt make too much money (at the time we needed kicker or rf to make bank) so i went back into retail. worked with chris norris for a year quit that took a long vacation and started at best buy (lol) stayed there for 3 years quit because i got tired of driving 96 miles a day (was mecp certified installer lol) the place that did those 2 cars of mine were the people who had the "perfect 40" oz backseat driver car kirk was also won 1 or 2 national installer of the year awards (way cool guy and you wouldnt know what he did if you met him) i started my own shop reluctantly with 1 guy i knew from bby that feel through because they wanted to get paid before the store had product lol so we just quit while we were almost even (i also had 0 control of $) i also worked for pat at his shop well before this...as a rep i worked for a guy you may know as steve stern of meca. besides ditzy women (only reason i ever got out of car audio for any time only kept me out for maybe 6 months at a time lol) i been doing it for a while been to ces and iasca and usac finals... alot of stuff i dont have room nor time to mention and would probably take me a few hours to remember anyhow lol
