    Size and tuning for SX15

    Hey guys, I decided to with something different with a setup. I am going with a single SX15. Hopefully its loud enough for me. Anyway I am going to go ported. Ill tell you all what kind of music I like to listen to first.

    I like around 60% of rap, 30% of rock, and 10% of trance and house.

    Rap is the dirty south music, rock would be like Disturbed, Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Korn, Nickleback, ect...

    What do you all think would be the best mix to tune my box too? Also, how much cubes? I think the max I can do is 4 cubes. I am also making the box to where I can pull it out through my back seats and turn the box around to make the sub facing inside the cab just for the heck of it. It will normaly be facing towards the trunk. If I could find a way to make the ports go inside the cab, I would.

    I say 32 would be perfect, just my opinion... 35 is perfect for me though

    Also, how wide do I need to make my slot port? 4 inches wide?

    The height will be around 15 inches tall.

    Also does anyone have a slot port calculator? Only one I can find is a circular port calculator.

    Nevermind about the slot port calculator, I finally found one.

    I do have another question though, I am suppose to include the enclosure volume without the port included in my equation for the length of the port, but how do figure out my enclosure volume if I dont know how much volume the slot port is going to take?
