    DC Audio Spring Build Enclosure Ideas

    I'm going to be running 3 Dc Level 4 12's on a DC 5K in the spring. These are going in a trunk! I can do 6 cubes; however DC recommends 4.5 cubes. I am trying to figure out if subs back port back or subs back port out the side would be best. I really don't want to fire everything into the cabin because I don't want to mess with sealing off the trunk. The seats fold down. Opinions are welcome! I am double baffling, bracing and using fiber glass resin.

    Is that 6 cubes net or gross?

    Damn, that's a big trunk. What car? But sub/port back should do pretty well.

    its an 04 Grand Prix. They are wide cars. I can do 40 wide by 15 high by 36 deep. I like too stay around 14 high because it makes it easier to get the box in and out of the trunk.

    You think 1.5 would be best?

    Re: DC Audio Spring Build Enclosure Ideas

    I was just thinking I can't do sub back port back. I would have to do port out the side! Any opinions?
