    SPL Box

    I need to make a new box,
    my old box is 5^ft and the port is 70 square inches and 13 long and it is tuned to 45hz.

    this box was made for SQ. I am using one 15 and it hits on average 141db in a sq box so I would love to hear it in a spl box.

    the sub is a DD9515e

    any ideas would be awesome

    I would say a box tuned that high is a SPL box. Most SQ boxes are tuned around the high 20's to low 30's.

    6-7 cubes...tuned higher, around 45 - 55hz or so.

    What vehicle are you using for this? And how much room are you willing to give up?

    I am driving a 1989 ford thunderbird and am willing to give up everything behind the driver and passenger seats including the trunk.

    I already have torn everything out and have a 5^ft box(with pics) there but it's just not hitting loud enough.

    i would say if you got room, build around a 9-11cuft box ported to 50-56hz depending on the res. frequency of your car. you will slam out some nice #'s that way. also, how much power you feeding that sucker?

    How much power do you have running yours?

    5.00^ft (1) 15"(2) 12"(3) 10" 75.00 sq" vent x 13" long tunes to 45Hz (is what DD is recommends for a high efficient 15".

    Personally, I would go with something around 7-10 cubes.

    well there is your answer my man your sending that sub around 400 per coil. you spent at least 400 on the pair unless you got a hell of deal am i right??? man that's pathetic no offense but your running a Serious SPL hungry mad as hell wanting more power than most can feed it woofer and your running sony?? the saying goes your system is only as good as 2 things 1) your equipment and 2)your knowledge. i would say get new amps before you re-do the box man. how much do you have to spend i can promise you there is a 1ohm stable amp out there that will better serve your purposes. hell if you can afford 285 get yourself a American Bass Cx 1200D 1ohm 1200watts stackable so you can get a 2nd one and strap em together and give that thing close to 2.5kw or more if you have a 240+alternator.
