    box for re 8s

    I'm getting 2 re 8s. I have a regular cab 1989 pickup, and was wondering what kind and size box i should make, which way i should point them. What material to use. And all you guys talk about tuning your boxes, how do you do that?

    1cube tuned to 35hz

    Its going in a truck, so i'd make the box tall to fit behind the seat. Fire the subs forward and use 2 2" round ports about 13" long firing up.......i think.........don't have a box program on this computer....

    No, I'd make the box as shallow as possible and this would allow the ports to be fired up ward and retain as much legroom as possible.

    I only have about 11 inches between the wall and the seat, and I only have about 18" wide on each side. What should i do know, and should i fire them?

    forget porting, the subs are going to be ao close to you sq will over ride spl. A sealed enclosure will take up less room. I would have 1 pointing at the driver and 1 at the passenger.
