    help

    I was about to start making the design for my 15's and i was wondering how much wood had to be on the top and bottom of the sub. Since i only have like 16" of clearence im not sure if i can make it work.

    If that made any sense.

    Re: help

    you mean how thick of MDF should you use?
    -For (2) 15's, 3/4" at least. Thicker = stronger = better.
    If you have 16" clearance in box, you're fine.
    If you have 16" in the car, you're fine. 16" - 1.5" = 14.5". Most 15's need a cutout of 14 - 14 1/8".



    What the f00k happened to this place?

    Re: help

    Ok i designed the box below, but im not sure if my calculations are right, and i dont know if it is ok that the sub goes 8.5" back and there is only 9" inside. Please let me know what i did wrong, or if it is good? This is the first box ive ever designed and i know close to nothing about it.

    I planned on using 3/4" MDF.


    I dont know how to make it bigger i think that is the biggest photobucket will allow me, if anyone else knows another free pic host let me know.

    EDIT: didnt realize it was that small, im looking for another host right now...sorry about that..

    Check that link out, you will see what a " wedge" is and be able to figure out your cubic feet.
    Im not 100% shure about magnet to wall measurements but its prob around 3-5"

    Re: help

    Hmm because i was going by the recomended design from ed, and just modifing it alittle to fit my trunk. And they only have 9" depth and the sub is 8.5.

    http://www.edesignaudio.com/im/main/...REV5.10.04.pdf

    But when i saw that i thought maybe i was reading the plans wrong? because i thought .5" was pretty close.
