    Icon32 18 xxx in a 6 cu ft box in caddy trunk.

    I plan to run a single 18 xxx in my 92 caddilac deville. RE says that I will need at least 6 cu ft box tuned to 30 hertz.

    I need to know if I will have enough room in my trunk for this box?

    Is it possible to get a 7 cu ft box in my trunk. The trunk in my car is huge but RE seems to think that it will not work and that the 18's will only work in SUV's. Can anyone help...

    Could build the box in your trunk ...

    Fiberglass also works wonders ...

    Re: 18 xxx in a 6 cu ft box in caddy trunk.

    Ok, go to your trunk with a tape measure. Measure your lenght, width and height (shortest part in your trunk, like from the speakers magnet since its usually the shortest part). And make sure you make a square thats even, dont angle the measurements. Then with your L, W and H multiply them (LxWxH) then take that number and devide it by 1728 and theres the largest cubic feet.

    Review...
    LxWxH = _____ / 1728 = ______cuft

    I got 8.06 cu ft

    43x18x18=13932

    /1728=8.06

    sound right?

    I drive a 93 coupe deville you can get well over the amount needed but you will have to face it towrds the trunk lid and in my opinion that is a waste.

    Re: 18 xxx in a 6 cu ft box in caddy trunk.

    I noticed that when I did the measurements.

    Will facing the sub upward torwards the trunk lid make that big of a difference compared to facing the sub out?

    Re: 18 xxx in a 6 cu ft box in caddy trunk.

    Should I go with the 15xxx or the 18xxx. With the 18xxx I will have to face the sub to the trunk lid.
