    Icon32 Is this port too big for 2 15" SX?

    The place where I bought my subs from helped me out with the box dimentions for my 2 15" RE SX's. The box is 8.9ft^3 (44" wide x 17" high x 25" deep)

    I was told to make the port 20" deep and then 150 sq. inches. So I came up with a port that is (15.5" high x 20" deep x 9.75" wide)

    Is 9.75" too wide for a port?

    I hope so because I just built it to the specs that I posted above. Still need to pick up another amp tommarow and finish off the box. Think this is capable of 150+dbs with 1,100 watts on each sub?

    Yeah, He gave me an awsome deal on it. I'm buying some new door speakers and probably a Kinetic battery off of him as soon as people start paying me the money they owe me.

    Hell draw you up some plans.

    Maybe a fee, but small. Ask him.

    Heres the pics of it

    Finally got it in, a little dissapointed only 147.3 on a new TL. Need to tidy up the wiring more, build a trim piece for the port and such. But let me know what you think.
