I'm going a start a blowthrough project on my singlecab s10. Im going to be using 2 hdc3 subs and can't decide between 12s or 15s. I'm going for spl obv given the subs I'm using. Someone help me out here on deciding sub size. Also I'm torn between a 4th order (confused as hll on how to build one that will sound good) or a regular slot ported box... I'm leaning towards ported. Should I make 2 chambers w 2 ports. Or a single chamber w one port? Helllp.lol

I'd do 15's if they'll fit. Seems silly to cut up a vehicle for 2 12's.

 

HDC's are not 4th order friendly. Do a reg ported box, single chamber and center port. Also depending upon where the box ends up and if you have to use panels to seal it off into the cabin that might lower tuning...

What do u mean panels? I planned on sinking the face of the box in about 2 inches so there's a lip on the front of the box. I've never owned 15s. Are they alot different then 12s sound and knock? Thanks for the info on the box tho.

15's no question. I would go with different subs and do a 4th order.. Tantric would be my pic for a blow through

Do a series 6th order. I can design on for you. Those subs will be nasty in one.

      Item(s) for Sale:
      1) 94-up s10 smooth rollpan
      2) 94-up s10 3rd brakelight filler plate ext cab
      3) 94-up s10 tailgate handle relocator and filler plate
      4) steel license plate box 1.5" deep w/ light
       
       
      Item(s) Description/Condition:
      All of this stuff is brand new,I bought this stuff b/c I had big plans for my little S10 but not everything goes as planned lol. Ive been hanging on to this stuff for around 5 years in hopes that I would someday get it all installed but I realize that its not going to happen so time to sell it finally! If someone wants to buy all of it,I can work out some kind of deal. The rollpan is pretty long so that kinda worries me on the shipping but hopefully it wont be too much. Everything will be shipped in the original packaging it was sent to me. I have a suicidedoors.com windsheild sticker that is about 14" long and 5" wide I will throw in with whatever sells first. I also have a suicidedoors/Thorbecke Bros Mini Truckin calander from Im guessing 07? Ill throw that in with the second thing that sells. Im sure someone would like to collect it lol. And also I have 2 suicidedoors.com catalogs from 06-07 Ill throw in if someone wants them. I still have all the original receipts so Im gonna base my prices off of those b/c all this stuff is still the same price now as it was back in 06-07 when I bought them. Of course Im not going to charge full retail though.
       
       
       
      1) Bought from suicidedoors.com /Thorbecke Brothers back in Jan of 07,has been sitting in the box ever since. As you can see it has some surface rust but thats as far as it goes,all it needs is a little sanding and it'll be ready for prime/paint. Thats just whats happens to raw steel after sitting untreated for so long. Will fit 94-up s10s probably wont fit stepside models but Im not sure. I have an 01 fleetside ext cab so I know for sure it will fit those.
       
      2) Bought from suicidedoors.com /Thorbecke Brothers same time as the roll pan. Has been sitting ever since. It doesnt have any surface rust and is in perfect condition. Im pretty sure this will only work with the ext cab models,94-up s10s
       
      3)Again bought from suicidedoors.com /Thorbecke Brothers. This was bought in Oct. of 06 and been sitting in the box since. Has some slight surface rust but it will clean up just fine and be ready for prime/paint. It is made to relocate your tailgate handle so it opens from the inside so you will have a smoothed tailgate but still have a functioning tailgate. Comes with a filler plate to cover the original handle location.
       
      4)This was bought from Fender Bender International or FBIRides.com. It was purchased in Oct. of 06 and been unused along with everything else. It has some suface rust but again all it takes is a little sanding and it'll be good to go. It is 1.5" deep and comes with the light for you plate,it has a cut-out for the light.
       
       
       
      Price:
      1)msrp-$59.99 +s/h My price $40+shipping. Shipping will vary from zip to zip and Ill have to give individual s/h estimates due to the size.
       
      2)msrp-$12.99 +s/h My price $10 shipped
       
      3)msrp $29.99 + s/h My price $25 shipped
       
      4)msrp $29.95 + s/h My price $25 shipped
       
       
      I can probably budge on prices based on where you live. Post your zip and what you're interested in and Ill PM you a shipped price.

      okay so first off sorry if this happens to be in the wrong forum, im new here, this is actually my first post. But anywho, I have been wanting to do a blowthrough in my S10 extended cab but I have a few questions. Is it better to have the subs facing inward towards the cab or facing towards the rear of the truck? Also, is it better to have the blowthrough be the actual subs or just have it ported into the cab? How big should the box be?
      I apologize if some of these are ignorant questions, I'm somewhat new to the audio side of automotive customizing!
