    a camaro....? wow, good luck.....

    i would say a huge box and tune low, at least 30hz, that should get you those low lows and hit ya hard in the chest.

    Re: bass that you feel

    since "sq is not a factor" he could be able to tune it up to 35hz, to "feel" the low rumble and deafen himself with the higher freq's

    Re: bass that you feel

    yea im probaly going to use the backseat area cause the backseat folds down. so i should tune low to get the bass you can really feel?

    Re: bass that you feel

    35hz is a happy medium...

    and with around 1500 watts and a port thats 54 in^2 or bigger, you'll even be able to feel the high notes...

    Re: bass that you feel

    You shouldn't go for low deep bass with L7s man. I've tried and it's a no go. L7s are geared for higher, SPL application. I mean, you could try aiming your system toward low end with L7s, but the L7s will shine much brighter in a higher tuned application. If you want Lows from L7s, the 15s are known to get you there.

    right now i've only got ~350 watts and one L7 (somehow the other one blew with no signal conencted )

    hair on the back of my neck is moving.

    i can feel that dangly thing in the back of my throat moving on certain notes.

    My L7's are in 2.75 cubes per sub. They hit very low and hard. When the kick drum hits you feel it in your throat and chest. Very cool feeling. Heavy Metal Baby!!!
