    Can anyone design me a sub box for an SA-12D2?

    I live in Malta (EU) so can't ask anyone to build and ship it to me as shipping costs would be too much, but willing to pay for design via Paypal. I will be using a Kenwood KAC-8105D 1000 Watt amp to power the sub and listen to mostly house/rnb/hiphop.

    I have a 2002 Toyota Yaris hatchback. Boot measurements are approx (length x width x height:

    92cm x 52cm x 52 cm - Quite a small trunk.

    Sundown Audio recommended dimensions are here:
    SA Series

    Here is a pic of standard yaris boot (only decent one I could find)

    seeing as how my trunk only allows for a 1.5 ft^3 enclosure, would you buy an SA-10 or 12. I was going for a ported enclosure

    1.5 before displacements? That's small for a 10, I'd go with an SA-8 v.2.

    Im new to car audio so not quite sure what you mean re:displacements, but my trunk measures

    36 x 20.5 x 36 inches (92 x 52 x 92 cm)


    The car is very small. It was called a Toyota Echo in the US

    Where did you get the 1.5 Cube measurement from? By before displacements I mean before subtracting the space that the sub takes up, as well as the space the port takes up. If you are at 1.5 cubes after those, then the SA-10 is a good choice.

    I mean the trunk as a whole measures 36 x 20.5 x 36 inches, im just wondering, based on that size, whether a SA-10 or 12 is the better choice.

    If you have that much space you could do an SA12. Would just be your choice.
