    What's it take...db

    Anybody have pictures of a trunk setup that does 145+ on music @ around 34hz??

    I'd like to get an idea of what kind of power/box(walled, ported, 4th)/setup I'd need to hit the higher numbers on the low bass notes.

    When you say music, do you mean just peak hold (which has nothing to do with music) or do you mean an actual average of at least 30 seconds (which would mean "on music)?

    A 145 on peak hold or burp is rather easy and won't take much. However, if you are talking of some kind of average then that is a different story.

    Like a full on 30 sec. avg.. assuming I have the right alt, batteries, and power to run proper electrical... what kind of box is going to give the best output from a trunk? Is 145+ avg. on 30 sec. of music a little optimistic out of a trunk?

    It is very possible, but it will come down to build...test...rebuild...test....rebuild....test.. .... and keep doing this until you get there.

    How much is it going to cost to get several different enclosure designs from you to test...rebuild..test...rebuild? Lol...

    How much power do you think I'll need, and optimally what can I fit into the trunk? 03 sonata.. fairly good sized trunk. I can get exact measurements too.

    I wouldn't do sub up and port back when you are chasing numbers. If you do a bit of research you will find a few guys doing rather well and each have their own ideas on what works best.

    A few use tons of power on a pair of subs others shoot for effeciency..... that has been the every ongoing battle of SPL for many many years...which is the right answer?....well which ever option you are personally better with..... lol

    Sorry man, but with SPL there is never any "good" or "right" answers really.

    Forward firing with sealed off trunk usually helps with numbers too

    That would be a peak hold not average, which average is what OP is asking about. In order to get an average around 145-146 he will need to be around a 150 on peak hold.
