    5 cubes to work with.

    Just picked up a 97 jimmy and lookin to run a single 18" on a little over 2k. I have roughly 5 cu ft to work with before displacement. Any suggestions? Looking for a lot of output for daily.

    Re: 5 cubes to work with.

    Are there any 18s that will perform well here? Or should I just start lookin into a single 15?

    You may be able to find an 18 that will work well in that but a ported 15 would be better IMO...

    If you put even the Sundown or OA into that small of an enclosure they will "work" but you are limiting the output you will get from them. Another words, you will not be getting the most from what you purchased and you would better off just getting something smaller.
