    Is this even possible?

    OK guys I've thought about gettting a 15L5 gettting 600watts rms and my only problem is the box. Now I can go a max of 28inches wide 14inches high and 24inches deep. How can I slant the box to where a 15 will fit in 14" high trunk? Will slanting the box to where the 15 points up going to drop my SQ or SPL? How would I figure out the Cu Ft of a slanted box? How could I slant port it? (possibly like kicker does with a port out of the back side of the box?) And my last is 600watts going to be suffiecient to push this thing or am I fooling myself and causing more problems than to just get a 12L5 and build a much easier box. Is it worth it?

    I swear

    I swear if you guys just answer this question so I can order either a 12L5 or 15L5 I will never ask another question about a kicker. (EVER) You guys have probly also noticed that most of my posts are questions, but I've learned a hell of a lot of stuff on here and I want to thank all you guys a lot.

    Did you think about firing the sub upwards? That would be the best bet.

    I think 600 watts should be fine for that sub in that enslosure.

    Yes, it is possible to slant the box... just create the box 13 or 14" high and slant the side where the sub is going to be mounted to fit the height of your trunk. It shouldn't effect your Sq or Spl as long as everything is calculated correctly. I think if you're going to calculate the internal air space, you take the slanted side and the side opposite of it and add it together, then divide by 2 and take the average and that should be the length you multiply...
    someone help me, I think that's correct

    Thanks guys

    Would I just slightly curve the port then if its slot ported and build like a bracing for it to curve? If you understand what I just said. What is the recommended tuning of a 15L5 for max SPL something like 37Hz?

    Cool

    I figured that it put out something like that at 14V. That I would say is efficient enough to push a 15L5.
