    help please =)

    Ok, here's what i got to work with....

    12" Audiobahn Flame Q 1206T (Dual 4 Ohms)
    1200 Watt SPL Class a/b amp (dont remember if the class is right)(2 Ohm Stable)

    i need to know what kind of box i should build taht the sub will sound best in. I have a custom built box right now and its really small... basically it is the size of the subwoofer face on all 6 sides... and its sealed .... ewwwww.... (box was free i didnt build it). And the best way to fire the sub... ie. towards the backseat, towards the back of the trunk, angled facing the trunk lid.
    If anyone has any suggestions or can help me with getting plans for it It'd be greatly appreciated.



    back at it...

    If you bought the sub new there should be some info on the recomended sealed and ported enclosures. If you dont have it let me know and I will see what I can find out.

    Re: help please =)

    naw i bought this sub off one of my friends and he didnt tell me what the specs on it and shyt were. I'm sure i could go get 'em somewhere but i'm too lazy to look. oh i gotta weird little question.

    I am thinking about dynamatting my car so the trunk doesnt rattle so dam bad. but i dont know if it is just a waste of money and i should get peel 'n seal or i should go to the car audio store we have here and have them install it for me.

    It mainly depends on the kinda money your willing to spend, it is a good investment though. From what Ive heard dynamat can lower the road noise by 6db. Thats almost like doubling your system.

    Thanks Jmac now i just need to actually get blueprints set up for it. which of course i dont know how to do.... now comes the even tougher choice

    Everyday Bass Performer or Ultimate SPL.... I will build either one but i have no idea which one will sound the best....

    On the Ultimate SPL Box it says i need (2) 4 x 12 inch ports are they serious?
    4 inch wide by 12 inch tall.... holy hell.. but the 15" only needs 4 x 8.75... i dont get it?

    ok i think i got it now.... I know dam well the box cant be 19.75 inches tall because that would not fit, so it has to be shorter.....which in turn i am thinking it would have to either be longer or wider.... i have about 2.5 feet i can mess with right to left, and like 4 feet total from front to back...

    Re: help please =)

    Alright i measured my trunk.....

    maximum size space to work with


    17 inches tall
    27 inches wide
    up to about 3 feet deep.

    so the box plans with the 19.75^3 wont work.... Is there anyway you can help me modify it so it will fix exactly?..... well not exactly but however close to the 3.5 cube's
