    Box designers?

    Having one hell of a time trying to come up with a slot ported design for the Xcon 15 to go in the trunk of my Forte Koup. I know that im gonna need a wedge type enclosure to pull off the height i need. If anyone Knows any good designers that are good with slot ported wedge enclosures. Would like them to design a box to the specs i need at a reasonable price.

    Do sub up and port to the side. Will work great in your car.

    Sub up in a trunk though? You dont think it would be better sub/port back or forward?

    You will need to deaden your trunk lid, but it will work very very well in your car. Have built several for locals here and a few back in Missouri with great success with that setup.

    Ahh you have worked with forte koups? I don't see many on the road, so i didn't figure many people had done much work with them. The only Koup i have seen with a decent system had subs/port forward sealed off at back deck.

    We normally do port to the passenger side in those, putting batteries to driver side.

    Not really, but I would try to keep it from being very long and skinny. It would be easy to just to a vertical port out the side using the back wall as part of the port.
