    ext cab help...

    Ok, Ive been look at a few different box designs (mainly http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=137804), and Im sort of at a loss on what I should go for.

    Equipment-
    Subs: Memphis PR12D4 x2
    Amp: PA BB1250.1
    Vehicle: 95 Chevy S-10 ext cab

    This is what I have to work with for room, and still be able to have some seat room.


    Mainly what Im looking for is good bass for everyday listening, mainly rap, and some rock. What would anyone recommend? I have all the materials & tools to build the box, mostly just need to figure out specs on it.




    Current Project, Chevy S-10:
    Pioneer DEH-P2900MP, Sub Amp: Planet Audio BB1250.1, Sub's: 2x SA-12's, Box: 5.5 cubes tuned @ 32hz, Alpine SPR-17S door speakers, Infinity Kappa 693.9i rear speakers
    More coming soon!

    Re: ext cab help...

    I can't find **** for specs on memphis stuff..

    Pretty much found that they are 250w RMS, and "sound great in any enclosure" haha..

    So I don't know.. Maybe do 2 cubes per sub and tune it at 30-2hz

    Maybe a down firing box? hide the subs an port? Can the box be any taller? So you want it to be the full 41"??

    I just looked on google and a lot of people said they sound horrible in sealed. I've been thinking ported anyhow. I'll throw a e-mail to Memphis to see if I can get some specs.

    you could do this. ported, and downfired.

    remove the seat and a battery will fit perfect back there.

    I think it will look much better, and then stuff won't fall on the subs or in the port.
