    kicker l7 15 7.0 cuft ported enclosure

    someone mentioned a kicker l7 15 required 7 cuft before any displacement . so around 6.0 -6.5cu ft net
    i think realistically 3.5 cu ft net tuned to 32 with 3in wide slot port would be ideal.
    anyone have a idea of size this sub preforms well in ??
    the enclosure is going in a ford fusion 2007 iirc

    i also think that 7.0 cu box for a l7 15 would it not lower rms rateing by more then half?
    maybe for spl but not music.



    thanks in advance

    The L7 wants a big box. No smaller than 5 cf. I think what was recommended to you is about right. If you want a smaller box go with a different sub.



    HU - Pioneer
    Front Stage - Old school MB Quartz run off a JL e2150
    Rear Stage - Stock - well one works, LOL
    Sub - Tang Band 740C in between the front seats
    Sub Amp - A tiny Kenwood. - because it fits under the seat.
    Total Spent on everything $50.

    pdf manual . specs for the kicker l7 15 in question

    Recommended Enclosure Specifications
    Recommended Enclosure Type Ported / Vented
    Sealed
    Minimum Sealed Box Volume 2.00 cubic feet
    Maximum Sealed Box Volume 6.00 cubic feet
