    Box build

    I have a 05 honda del sol not alot of room in the trunk.
    Measurments:
    29.5" Width
    12.5" height
    12" depth

    Any one know how many cubes that would be?

    it's for a 12 kicker l5 will be ported

    Re: Box build

    I'm assuming those are typos and you mean 12.6" width, not 12 feet 6 inches.
    And the last measurement.. 12"... deep?

    If you use 3/4" wood your internal volume will be .74 cubic feet (gross, once you add in port displacement and stuff, it's gonna be less. I seriously doubt you have enough room for a ported box if that's all the space you can use for a box.

    Yeah you are not going to be able to fit much in that space. That's not even enough for a 12 sealed. More like an 8 or 10.

    Re: Box build

    With that small of a car, and limited space, why not a pair of 8s sealed or a single 10 ported? Should still have a nice knock to it and would be able to fit and be just as loud as that 12 L5.

    Re: Box build

    I think what everyone means by "will it fit into the trunk" is will you actually be able to slide it into the trunk, if you build it to the max dimensions your trunk can fit, you may not be able to slide it in on account of it being too tall or deep.. cardboard mock ups are you friend.

    Just something to consider.

    Edit: Unless you're planning on assembling it in the trunk
