This is probably my 3rd setup Ive had to make a new box for, but Ive never done a complete MDF one myself, Ive always done custom sealed fiberglass boxes.
I need some help building and designing a box for some Audioque SDC 2.5 15" wangers.
First let check the work area:
Not a pic of my car but the same vehicle :P
My first dilemna is box placement, I see 3 options.
1- Plain jane square box, made to fit between the wheelwells and probably pretty tall to get the volume
2- Square box, but I would like it to go OVER the 2 wheel wells on both sides of the vehicle, you know kind of build square indents in the box where those wells are so the box can sit ontop of it and use that wasted area Id be losing with option 1. This would obviously change the inside shape of the box though, dont know if that matters. And the complexity would increase a bit I guess. I like this box because I wouldnt have to make it as tall to get the volume and Id still have some trunk...
3- Box built to one side, built to rest overtop of one wheel well and REALLY tall, like to the ceiling...? Just an idea
As for dimensions, what u see is not what you get, my car comes with a thing called lounge seating, basically the front seats fold into the rears, the rears recline back, and youve got a couple beds, I want to retain that.... so the dimensions Im giving are based on KEEPING that area needed for reclinability.
These are rough number, but I believe I had about 36" between wheel wells. 48" from left to right ONTOP of the wheels wells, 26" depth from front to back and it was 17" in height to the top of my back seat.
I dont know if I want to go ABOVE my rear seat, and lose my rear view visibility, but it can always be an option....
So can you guys give me some general pointers until I get some hard numbers. Like I cant even find the recommended box volume for a ported box for these subs not even from Audioque, havent got a reply to my email.
I'll also need a tune frequency to I guess, this is going to be mainly a daily SQL box, I listen to a lot of metal, mostly 3 days grace and such. But when I want to listen to Dre/biggie etc and the hard hitting bass tracks. I want this **** to SLAM.
BTW- these will be powered by a txa 1000D, giving them full recmonded wattage.
More info later
