Re: kicker 12' l7 box
download the tech manual from Kicker. I made mine to their specs, the largest box they reccomended. It's like 3.25 cubes. Only thing I don't like about it is the port's on the side of the box, facing the d-side wall, but it still sounds **** good in my SUV. Never played around with different facing ports and stuff, so don't know what kind of effect the side-exiting port has.
PAST: 1976 International Scout. JVC head unit, pioneer 6x9's, Focal 5.25 comps, and a Kicker S12L7 in 3.25 cubes at 37hz: Crunch PZI 1500.1 amp at 1 ohm. 1/0 throughout.
Replaced the factory 8 track and single 4x7 speaker behind the dash
PRESENT: 95 325TI. JVC HU, 5.25" PG RSD, Sony Xplod 604EQX 4ch built in EQ, 10" MB Quart Discus in custom molded 'glass enclosure
