    Help with SX 15 plans

    Well I gotta build a new box so I am needing box and panel plans. I am going to make a wedge style enslosure for my trunk. In the future, maybe next week or next month, I am going to cut out a hole for my back seat so I can have my SX poking out. Back seat passengers will still be able to sit there, because I will have a sub grill. Anyway, my max demensions for the rectangular part of the box are 26W X 15H. I dont want to go beyond 28 inches deep. I am wanting it tuned to 33 hrtz. As for the wedge part of the box, My bottom depth is 5 inches so I get a volume of .34 ft3 before sub displacement. Can anyone help me?

    Oh and should I try and find a way to fire the port in the cab or just leave it to firing in the trunk?

    Or should I just run an IB setup?

    The back part of the backseats are removable. I can take each side out in 3 seconds. I am talking to a guy right now who totalled his Grand Am so I can get his and have another set for when I want to put it back to stock

    why not a crx style box, hella easier to build than a wedge. plus it'd probably be louder in a grandam trunk as well. If you really want to see the sub, make the front panel with 1" plexi. just my $.02

    Yeah I was thinking of about 2 MDF rings... That should do the trick. I am going to staple the fabric back around my hole into the seats so the seat fabric comes in.

    If I need more rings, I can always add more. No biggy, that isnt my concern right now.
