    Icon31 For my friend that wants bass...

    So a buddy of mine wants to buy my HDC 18" which is fine cause I'll just buy another new one but I'm trying to convince him that the trunk of his Honda accord will not suffice.


    He's watched some vids and has it in his head that an 18 is the only way to move some air and shake the ground. I keep telling him we can achieve this with a beefy 10, 12, 15 but he's convinced.

    Ima have him sit down and read this thread so he knows what we can do with a good power source, nice 1k amp and 1k rms sub.

    I told him, big 3, batt, decent HU, proper box(everything!!!) and a decent amp. Nice clean wiring ++



    Please elaborate for him...

    @pro-rabbit ; and friends...

    I have put a single 18 with precision ports into the back of a newer malibu and it work just fine lol..



    Best idea is to get some measurements of the trunk. Then we can see what will work...make sure the enclosure will slide through as well...I have some clients that forget you have to slide the enclosure through the opening it won't magically just be in the trunk after it is built haha.



    BTW- I should have some pics for you by mid afternoon or so...

    No go there sir. Tell him to stick with smaller subs.

    He only has 4.7ft3 gross volume. Pretty small actually, Should be more then that back there.

    Yeah that seems way too small...espically for an accord.

    My small azz saturn that I had was bigger than that..

    What year is the accord? sedan or coupe?

    Re: For my friend that wants bass...

    are those dimensions the max that can fit? you need to allow adequate room around the box for airflow, thats barely enough room for a pair of 12s, probably better suited to 10s or a single 15

    There is, but the problem lies in sliding the box in. maybe an extra 2-3 inches in length but then the edges need to be shaved down and its tight as fawk.

    he's never even had on nice eight so I think I'd like to teach him a lesson on what one good sub/box/amp/power can really do. then he can get hooked like us crackheads and jump on the forums

    Just do a single 15 in a 3cube box with 2 4inch aero's or pvc's tuned around 30-33hz. Most 15's will work well in that and it leaves plenty of room around the box for adequate airflow.
