    4 12" kicker comp design help

    I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado, Ext. cab. I want to put all 4 under the back seat, face down. I have a 1000 watt ssl evolution monoblock amp to power it.

    Questions:

    Sealed or Ported?
    would 4 be possible? if not two?
    8 g.a or 4 g.a wire?

    Let me know if anyone can help me sketch up a design for my truck. THANKS!!

    All 4 sealed with 4 gauge and you will be banging. Not enough room ported unless u build a wall. 2 ported will work.



    2 smd fifteens on 2 b2 m1s. 8 crossfire mids and 4 aq tweets on 3 b2 qautros. 270 mechman. 10 c and d batts. Busting windshields like its my job.

    You can do two sealed down firing. I don't think you will have the room to go ported at all, or to fit 4.

    In theory you can, but you will likely run into issues with attempting to get the settings right on the amplifier. The reason being that each set of subs will be reacting different do to the difference in enclosures.

    However, if you match the volume in the console and down fire the console sub(s) the same distance from the floor as the under seat enclosure you might be able to make it work.
