    need help with a wall

    OK I am going to build a wall for 4 shocker ss 15s should I make 4 different boxes each ported or just one big box with hell of a port and is there such a thing as to big of a box? I was thinking 5 ft³ for each sub so thats not that big. I am up in the air on the tuning also I was thinking 45??

    Make one big box....one huge box lol.

    LOTS of port.

    Too big of a box? Yes...there is.

    I've always had the notion that big SPL numbers could be had with huge boxes and one port so large that it can swallow little people. I also think that the tuning frequency would depend on what resonance your cabin will produce after the wall is in place.

    I dont care about any comp titles or any thing I just want to be the loudest in my little town but it would be nice if I could pull in to the local comps and pull some big #s I just want to hit that 150 mark thats when I stop spending all of my $ on this car audio stuff

    They way I'm thinking of right now would be too time consuming and will waste a perfectly good MDF board.

    It might be a better option to get the help of bigbassman (Loyd) who seem to build these things for fun.
