    What amp do you have? One with a SSF? RE says 2 cubes sealed and 4 cubes ported to 30. You might wanna try looking for fellow SE people...

    If you get the 1200.1, you'll need to get some FMODs....what's your price range for the amp?

    As far as box size....try around 5 cuft after all displacement

    Re: box size for se's??

    Hey, Jmac I am going to get 2 15 inch se's my for my van and basically what I am looking for is 4.0cuft tuned to 30hz. Can you give me a design also?

    The measurements for my trunk is width 45" x height 18" x depth 14". I don't want to remove the back seat so the depth can only be 14". I am looking for a slot port too and a common chamber.

    Jmac, you really need to open a Paypal account and charge people like 3 or 4 bucks for box calculations.

    Thanks Jmac. However doesn't a upward port with the subs facing the back of the car cause cancellation. I always thought that if the port and sub are on different sides cancellation occurs. I going to remeasure my trunk and see what I can do (maybe move rear seat up forward).
