1.82 cuft sealed enough...

I'm pretty sure the 2cubes that SI recommends is after all displacement. The polyfill tricks the driver into thinking it's a larger box. You'd need a little over a pound and a half for your box of 1.82 cubes. I believe the ratio is 1lb polyfill to 1cube of airspace. I'm making a sealed box for my mag15 @ 2.5cubes and most likely won't be adding any polyfill.

Actually, after a little reading I did, it doesn't make the sub think the box is bigger.. read what Donn had to say on this subject.

its not really that the sub thinks the box is bigger....it changes the acoustical properties of the enclosure.
when you stuff any box full of fiberous material it slows the backwave. in doing so, you create better low-end frequency response. the amount the backwave is slowed is directly proportional to the amount of stuffing used. If your box sounds like crap below 40hz, pack that sucker full. if it gets a little response but not quite enough, just use the suggested 1lb/cuft.

I have a 15D2 as well, why are you going with 2.5 cubes sealed?? I am probably going to build my box closer to the 2 cubes recomended. is there any advantage to going 2.5?

I'm going a bit larger than recommended to provide a little better low end response.

Advantages of large sealed box over small sealed ...
- Less cone distortion

- Better transient response

- More accurate

- Louder low-frequencies

- Smoother roll-off

No problem. The Dayton ultimax is one of the better sounding sealed subs I’ve heard. I kinda want to try the 18 in my ride.

I scrolled thru there trying to find TS specs and must have missed them or they weren't displaying. Anyway, looks like 2cuft tuned to ~35hz was a pretty good guess given those specs.

They have pre-cut wood if you pay extra at the hardware store. Just draw it out. But you'll have to pay extra. Then screw it in yourself. Harder and extra work. But this makes do.
