    Icon7 New subs and building the enclosure.

    If anyone has a lot of knowledge on building boxes it would be awesome if they could tell me whether my blueprints would work or not. I really want to get these subs in my car and if you guys say this box will work then I will start building. The wait is driving me nutz! I WANT TO START BUILDING!

    Alrighty, I have been reading about ported boxes and asking lots of questions and I think I did it right. Here are the specs for one of the new subs that just came yestarday!

    Kicker 15"
    500Wrms
    7 16/18" mounting depth

    Recomended Enclosure
    5 cu feet + port displacement
    3" + 15.5" port, 22" long

    Based on these specs I think I made the sub enclosure correctly. The picture below is a top view of the enclosure. The HEIGHT of the air space would be 15.5 inches. Did I draw the port correctly? The peach colored space is about 200cu inches under the goal of 5cu feet (if i calculated it right?). Go ahead and don't address all of my questions directly I just want to know if this would work great for my sub or not considering what it would be tuned to and stuff. Would anyone have an idea of what this box would be tuned to?

    REMEMBER - The height of the airspace is 15.5 inches. I did not have the time to make a 3d object and label it all.

    Crud! Don't do the specs on that drawing, I gave the wrong one. The one below is the actual blueprints that I meant to ask about. What would this box be tuned to and how do you guys think it would work for my sub?
