    Need some suggestions for custom Dayton powered sub build

    I have experience with building boxes for cars but not much for houses. I have no idea how much space to give the sub or what to tune it to so any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Equipment:
    15" Dayton Audio Reference HO RSS390HO-4
    500 watt Dayton plate amp
    2 4" Precision aero ports 15.5" max length each

    I will be building this out of 3/4" MDF (already have 2 half sheets). The sub is only going to be used for listening to music (mostly rap). The room is 12' wide 20' long 8' high with cement floor and drywall walls.



    Alpine cda-9886
    AQ2200d
    18" HDC4
    AQ 4x90
    First gen AQ Components in front and rear doors
    Optima 34/78 yellow top up front
    4 runs of 1/0 Knu KLMX Kable and Big 3 done in 2/0 welding wire

    Wow, no replies. This has to be a first. I don't have time to model this for you, but if you just call PE they will give you the size and tuning you need. I'll keep and eye on this thread if you have any questions about what they say. Also don't forget to brace the box.



    HU - Pioneer
    Front Stage - Old school MB Quartz run off a JL e2150
    Rear Stage - Stock - well one works, LOL
    Sub - Tang Band 740C in between the front seats
    Sub Amp - A tiny Kenwood. - because it fits under the seat.
    Total Spent on everything $50.

    Ended up going 3.5ft^3 at 30hz. I tuned it high because it is only for music use. It does much better than I thought it would. Now I just need to build the second one!

    Looks sweet! Is like to see some build pics of the next one. I would also like to hear if you notice a difference with running two vs. one. Not Spl, but in the sound.

    Frontstage Amp: Ecplipse EA2212

    Re: Need some suggestions for custom Dayton powered sub build

    The box is 30"Hx18"Wx22.75"D. 2 4" ports 15.5" long. The box has one "window" style brace right below the sub and a double baffle. The double baffle might not be necessary but I wanted to flush mount the sub.
