    Cut through help

    I am doing a cut through in my 89 ford. It is a ported enclosure, for 2 15's. If I make the cut through hole fairly big, will i run into trouble with the back glass flexing, possibly breaking? just because there wont be as much metal below it.


    Thanks.

    Well, obviously the bigger it is, the less structural integrity that back wall is going have.

    However, if you are doing a ported enclosure, the cutout will need to be pretty large, and i would reccomend doing some kind of bracing or incorporating the front structure of your box into that cutout.

    If you did a bandpass enclosure, you could get away with a smaller cutout (just enough area for a port rather than the whole face of a ported box.

    Re: Cut through help

    Hey Zier do you design those boxes as a regular ported design or does the front area make it like a bandpass?

    Sorry I was referring to the bottom picture with the baffles in a V and the port in the back. Does the size of the area in front of the subs kind of create a 6th order bandpass effect?
