    Looks like im getting a Solo X 18, need box help.

    Ok...My max dimensions with the rear seat in is 49" wide...26" high...& 20 deep.. I can remove my rear seat if I need to but I think this is enough room for atleast 11 cubes.. This is in a 99 Caravan btw..I went on Kickers site and found NO box recommendation sizes..So I have no clue what size to shoot for or at what hz range..help please..

    10 cf @ 35hz for daily.

    10 cf @ 56hz for competition.

    That's what says in the manual.

    What do you mean? From the sub or from this post? From this post im trying to get info like these guys are giving me.. A good idea of how big my box should be and what it should be tuned to because I couldn't find info on it anywhere. Once I get straightened out how many cubes it needs to be and at what hz range then I will have my guy whip out a box design and cut sheet for me...btw my guy is "iDesignBoxes".. If you mean what am I trying to get from this sub the answer is BASS...For a weekend warrior kind of deal..entering into a few little home town competitions, scaring the wife and kids and small animals..you know that kinda thing...

    Well....I have not actually got "the power" yet..I was looking at a DD z1 or 2 kicker ZX2500's.. I for sure will run no less then 4000 rms but I want as close to 5000 as I can get.. maybe even a bd40001 Fosgate...or something...open to suggestions..

    Well people find my opinion to be bias but in all truth the ZX is the choice i would make. I have tested many amps and the ZX came out on top for me.

    I can design you a box if you want, hit me up on aim (SundownAudioNY)

    It all depends on how much power you are gonna run and what your looking for in results. That will determine the box specs.

    cool, another Indianaian and I see you're from Washington. I played basketball with Luke Zeller Anywho, I don't think a huge 10 cubic foot enclosure would be necessary, especially if you are going to give that sub a lot of power.
