    I Need a Box

    I've got two 12W3v3-4's being held from their full potential due to my bad decision of choosing a bypass prefab box. Looks like I'm going to need a new box.

    Here are the specs


    Preferred Box Size:

    W:32" D:16" H: 14"

    Looking at the JL site, these specs are very unrealistic but I thought I'd throw it out there. It's the size of the box i have now and it fits perfect. I have small amounts of trunk room

    here's a idea of how big my trunk is


    I'd prefer it to have someone close to me make it. that would be ideal but unrealistic. i'll pay for $hipping if need be tho. if nothing else, some how to's and some box plans would be nice. all responses welcome..

    Re: I Need a Box

    You only have 3.2ft^3 before any port or sub displacement...not enough for a pair of your 12's, but good for a single one. I highly recommend trying to fit more room somehow.

    You're going to have to have a little bit bigger box for those 12's.

    34w x 14h x 18d

    Re: I Need a Box

    I live in springfield a good 20 mins away. i'll have to see if i can get a hold of this Pioneersaturn guy. I might be able to work those 34w x 14h x 18d specs. only concern is the width but we'll see.. if nothing else i'll go with one. i'd rather have one running properly then two running like sh*t.

    Re: I Need a Box
