    What's a good sub that will fit my custom box?

    I made my own custom box that fits between rear seats in my wagon....

    Currently have some terrible 10" DUAL 300W subs. They just ****, but worked fine for a number of years when I didn't really need much bass.

    Whats some good subs that will fit this box? Something under 300W RMS will be plenty fine. I don't need much power, just enough.

    The inside has two separate sealed chambers for each 10" sub.





    Odd shape I know....but it fits so, so perfectly. It allows my 3rd row of seats to be fully functional -- I made the box this dimension specifically for this, so not changing it. I know I should be able to get the bass I want from this size sealed box.

    Tell me a better sub with 150RMS.. There gear has a place and for a 50 sub not bad. Better then a Hifonics, or Pyle or any other sub in that price range.
    I ran these a while back and for a low wattage set-up I WILL RECOMMEND!

    Re: What's a good sub that will fit my custom box?

    Thanks for input guys....

    How can I find the volume of each chamber?

    I know volume of triangle is 1/2 B*H, so the height according to my calculations is 13.25"

    38.95125 = A of triangle * 21 length = 818^3 inches / 12 = 68^3 ft.

    Does that sound right?

    .8 cf per side? Contact that guy who were selling two 10" old school Solo-Barics recently in the classified and see if he still wants to sell it. Can't go wrong with those.

    About 1.5 after material displacements (assuming 3/4" MDF). So after subs around 1.2-1.3, about .6-.65 a side would be about right. Would work fine for 2 10's; poly-fill is an option, if desired.



    System Layout help available via PM.

    My system:
    Sounds good.
