    single cab s10 ported box

    anyone have ideas on how to configure a ported box in a regular cab s10?

    this will be for a single 12" kicker cvr, so i'm shooting for 2ft^3 @ 32hz w/25in^2 of port.

    if anyone has pics of setups they've done, or measurements of what will fit that would be great in trying to design this box.

    right now i'm thinking of keeping it simple with a wedge going almost all the way across the back that will fit behind the center console.

    any idea on how much airspace that would end up being?

    and where should i fire the port? right now i'm thinking that out the side would be bets.

    yeah, my buddy is on there all time, and has showed me some boxes that he liked, but i don't think they know all that much about designing enclosures.

    one i saw had a 2" x 4" (approx) square port

    wasn't that just done with someones BTL, and it didn't work out that well.

    i was also thinking that, but the outer diameter on the 4" aero is over 7", which would require the seat to be slid up to fit two of them vertically aligned (i think).

    i did run some numbers and it seem that getting 2ft^3 ported is nearly impossible, but i'll have to keep thinking.

    buckets, any info/pics about taking the center console out?

    i'll have to run that idea past him. sure would make the design easier.

    Re: single cab s10 ported box

    what im doin with my S-10 is im probably going to build up the front of the enclosure in the front of the cab with wood, glass over it, have external port shooting towards the rear, and then making a console to flow into the box

    but i only need 1.25 cu ft 2.5" ports x 16" long

    Yeah I heard there's this n00b there who has 1,600 posts who drives a Ford Ranger




    It's been years since I have been really active in car audio forums. I posted a ton about 10 years ago here on caraudio.com, termpro.com, sounddomain.com, caraudioforum.com, and a whole bunch more that I no longer remember. You may remember me. If not, you're probably just young haha. Because of the many years since I've done any selling / buying, the only person I can remember for my references is Team PSI (David Moore).

    when i did some calculations i based my numbers off this:

    assuming that's about the max dimensions that will fit behind the center console (ie. easy design).

    and with dimensions similar to those there's no way to get a single 12 ported back there.

    well, he's already got a kicker cvr and amp from his last car, so he'd like to work with those.

    Re: single cab s10 ported box

    well, he gave me some measurements and this is what i came up with:

    (side view):



    and 48" wide.

    that shows the passenger side of the box with the 3" x 7" port opening, which will be 18" long.

    that comes out to about 1.85ft^3 @ 35Hz w/21in^2 of port area.

    not ideal, but the best i could come up with for the measurements he gave me.

    here's the winisd plot of the transfer function vs. a 1ft^3 sealed box:



    as you can see, a pretty good gain in max amplitude and a considerably (>10dB) lower peak and f3.

    i was a little worried about the small(ish) port, but winisd only shows it being a possible issue with a full 400W between the frequencies of 23 - 36Hz.

    on music i don't think that should be too much of a problem.
