    DC Leve 6 m4 15 box size?

    What's the recommend box size for the level 6 15? Word of mouth says 3.5, the site says 3.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    i know people who use large boxes and some swear by smaller boxes. not to mention that the have several suspension options so that may be an issue too.

    I sent my DATS over to a guy here and he tested his level 5s. I've been told and see plenty of installs where they use typical alignments....

    But you at 2ohm it's all good!

    yeah i told wife guy on here pm'ed me wanting to buy my amp she said tell him it not fs (cause she knows i'll spend more $ on new one) and told her i wanted d2 sub for bday next week she said tell ya'll i'm to old to go down to 1ohm lol..

    He's been through 2 boxes so far. We'll see how this one does. He was getting a bunch of rise so we are trying to lower than some. Make the air flow a little better

    yea typical of that design. just grab a pair of dual 1s and run the at 1/4 ohm. it will still rise to around 1.2. seen the exact same thing with the level 5 12s..

    It was in a 6th order, his rear port was too small for the power of these woofers. He was getting too much rise from that I believe.

    What frequency does he burp? Seems to me you could just go with a larger box than 3 cube if you're burping around 50hz you're not going to be hitting x-max unless he has 8-10KW on tap.
