i have 4 12s in a 7cube box before all displacement and i have talked to a few people since i bought the box. i asked when it was made to add bracing in the center but they left that out. and the port didnt have mny screws on the front peice of the port. my box is clacking like mad when i turn it up. i was also told that after displaceement and port and all that ... that my subs are seeing ~1 cube each all said and done. 7 cubes is basically like being knocked down to 4 cubes there.
im wondering if theres anyway to have a ported box strong enough to fit in my trunk thats not unreasonably expensive or hard to do. the current one is 30" wide, 35" deep, and 12" tall. subs facing upwards, port facing the rear, tuned to 35hz. modifying the box i have now is the obvious choice .... but this thing literally wont come out in one peice *tried* and disassembling the box in the trunk, which cant fit a drill for the last 56 or so screws, with a hammer+screwdriver to pry thru liquid nails, then setting something underneath the 2 rear subs inside the box to give pull-ability to the top of the box would be another 6pm-2am job :P
im wondering ... should i just go sealed? i could face all subs up, and it would give them more space, and i could even make 2 different boxes each holding 2 subs. the box was originally gonna be 32hz ... but iw as alked into 35 and im mising ym low ends and the quality flies away when the box flexes.
ehhh any suggestions? here are some pics
