    Best way to do this?

    I am in the works of getting another 12" Type X and another 1501d. I want to maximize potential while keeping some trunk space. what would be my best option?

    it's a trunk car (94 t bird) and the one i have now is really nice ported at 30hz.

    Re: Best way to do this?

    Does that car have a spare tire hole? or is it deep in the back on the trunk?
    .... Tool box can go on the floor inside the car ( If the seat are to be folded down. )

    Re: Best way to do this?

    the spare is in a "well" but if the box goes over it i can not get to it. and there is no space in the floor between the seats. i might have to re-arrange some things to get it to work, but i have to have the spare

    Re: Best way to do this?

    I was amazed at how well a sealed box sounds

    I was like you and thought that ported was the way to go

    Turns out i like sealed alot better

    Re: Best way to do this?

    yeah, i've always had ported. so i am biased.

    anyone know what the space difference would be ported vs. sealed?

    these subs do sound good sealed. to go ported your gonna double how much room the one takes up

    thats exactly what i was thinking. and i may do it like that. but if sealed will net me a considerable amount of space i'll def consider it. i'd probably have to build the box in the car

    Nope!
    ... that trunk is big enough to slide, push, and kick the box in...

    LOL!

    Re: Best way to do this?

    i know the cougar was. it had a deeper opening. i had to tilt the sledgehammer when it went in. i know this would be way bigger than that.

    i just noticed this... the sub i have now is model (SWX 1242d) and the one i'm getting is (SWX 1243d). i think mine is a year or so older. this shouldnt matter, right?

    Re: Best way to do this?

    I dont think so, unless the specs changed within that year you should be fine.


    BTW, in order to run the (2) 15" box in my trunk, im going to have to omit my spare,

    *****, but its the price you pay for what you enjoy.
