    mixture of both. but from what i see i dont think a box tuned to facoty specs will fit in my trunk i would like to leave the trunk as is. i play all kinds of music from rap/country/metal.

    Re: Need enclosure ideas.

    rough measured estimates are 33x18x30. i would like to go ported with the xxx15, but i think with these parameters sealed would have to be the better option. what do you guru's think.

    Re: Need enclosure ideas.

    you have a good 8.572cu ft of internal volume. i would say that's plenty for a ported box.
    split that volume between the port, driver displacement and the air volume required by the sub and you have a sweet sounding enclosure.

    Wood: 3/4" MDF / 1" dowels for internal bracing
    Adhesive: Wood Glue and 1 1/2" coarse Drywall screws
    Wiring: 12Ga Speaker cable
    Terminals: your preference on terminal cups

    Tuning is what you do on the ports to get a certain frequency. I recommend using Precision ports (2 x 4" precision ports) you cut them to a certain length based on box size to get the tuning

    Re: Need enclosure ideas.

    that is un-visable by the human eye.

    try opening it in paint, saving it as a JPEG, than uploading it whereever you upload it to, if you upload a BMP <default paint format> into most online hosting things, they go crazy making it smaller into a jpg.

    good luck with that.
