    Re: Ranger ext. cab design

    from my calculation it looks like it needs to be
    h 8
    w 2
    d 9.8

    d= depth

    but dont count me to be right on

    I hope that's not the case when I build my box in my Ranger. I was planning on going subs up, port up.

    Re: Ranger ext. cab design

    ive always done subs slanted with the back of the seat.. but have never gone ported :/
    my next box will be slanted with seats and ported to passenger side, or a semi wall with 4 15's tuned to 30 hz
    and im pretty sure you need more port area wich means bigger box if you want to stay with 1.4ft^3 per sub
    and fyi you can go alot wide than 40
    since you cant use the jumpseats with the box you have planned. why not take em out?
    boom, instant 10+ inches

    Re: Ranger ext. cab design

    alright so i have the final design painted an all on sketchup with a rough sketch of the back of the truck as you can c i have moved the port to fire down. it is in the middle of the subs 33 hz. im going to hopefully start the build this sat. putting in two cerwin-fega HED 12.4 ran off of a fusion PPam2000.1 wired to 1 ohm

    heres a view of the bottom with the port



    and with the seat and amp rack on top didnt feel like making the passenger seat

    Subs up is a full dB quieter than subs forward.

    Re: Ranger ext. cab design

    I really hope that little slit in the box isn't the port

    you need at LEAST about double that port area, really you should have 3 or 4 times as much
