    What size box for 15" TC-3000?

    Well I ordered one of the very last TC Sounds TC-3000's last week. I did a search and still couldn't really find a recommended box size for this thing. I'm going to port it and run it off a Sundown SAZ-1500d. What size should I go with? I'm looking for a nice SQL blend. I'm thinking 4.0 after displacement tuned to 32 hz. Sound good? Any 3000 owners want to chime in?



    Setup in progress:
    Subs: 2 15 inch Ascendant Audio Avalanches in a 7^3 box tuned to 30hz
    Amps: 2 DEI 1500d's for subs, DEI 500/2 for components
    HU: ?
    Components: ?

    4.0ft^3 @32hz was too boomy for me. Building a new 3.5@32 now. IMO Id stay between 3-3.5

    Re: What size box for 15" TC-3000?

    What about my old box from my single Ava setup? It's 3.2 ft^3 (after dispalcement for the 15" ava). Would this box work, or should I have bjfish build me another box along the lines of 3.5 ft^3 after displacement for my 3000?

    Subs: 2 15 inch Ascendant Audio Avalanches in a 7^3 box tuned to 30hz

    Cool, i'll give the 3.2 ft^3 box I have a try, it's tuned to 32 hz. What's the displacement for a 15" 3000 anyway?

    not sure on the displacement... im sure its a good bit with that beefy ferrite motor but i dont have to worry about it since mine has a small neo proto motor (6 times stronger than the regular ferrite)

    you think it's way bigger than my ava 15? I want my 3000 to have at least 3 ft^3 after displacement, and like I said my box is 3.2 after displacement for the ava I had in it.

    if that box was after displacement then you should be fine... thorw it in and see if you like it, if not then you can go from there
