    Would an AQ HDC318-A in 14.4 cuft trunk using IB work?

    Would an AQ HDC318-A in 14.4 cuft trunk using Infinite Baffle work?
    I tried this question in the Subwoofer section, but it's not working
    out for me.

    VAS 109 ltr (3.85 cubic feet) trunk is 3.7 times the size.

    QES .5
    QTS .464
    FS 31 Hz

    rest of the specs:

    What would this do to the power handling (should reduce it a lot), I was
    thinking it may handle an AQ 1200d this way?

    Will it work as IB, or will my trunk act like a big leaky
    sealed enclosure?

    The Car is a 2004 nissan Altima, the trunk and rear deck actually
    do not look to bad in terms of IB, it's almost ideal from what I can see.
    Just seal off the 6x9 ports and 2 little holes, and mount some layered
    mdf sheets behind the seats, right against the ledge with some kind
    of gastketing or expandable foam.

    I know, I know try it and see. I just want to make sure the numbers look
    right to people with IB experience.

    I dont think the HDC318's are the best sub for IB but I do know that the mach5audio MJ-18M is a good sub for IB



    subs 1 18" MJ-18
    amps 1 A3000DB
    speakers memphis PR's
    HU some crape pioneer

    Power handling will decrease most likely decrease.

    If you have leaks when going IB, imo, its best to have the leaks leading outside of the trunk and not into the cabin

    Nice low qes and qts and price, but the VAS = 210 litres, or about 7 cubes. Do you think that I have enough trunk for that woofer?

    It can also just be a 'gigantic sealed box'
