c'mon now, if i was shooting an 8 year old, it wouldnt be MY 8 year old.
i recently got a Pyle PL1590BL and i was building an enclosure for it tuned to 25 hz. i didn't have any tools to cut a circle so i hit it with a big hammer.

You could really get that into a box about 1/2 the size and probably won't lose very much SPL. But, you end up gaining a huge amount of frequency bandwidth.

That's why they don't deliver.
Yer ass better go sit along the side of the road and wait.
You can't expect them to travel up some dirt road in a hick / back woods town. Thats how horror movies start
I explain things very simply and use analogies in terms of Pickles, and grape drink, pool noodles and jackhammers...if you can't put 2 and 2 together there man, There simply is not much more I can do.

He never said if that's 10cubes before or after displacement...
Yeah, I guess. I just always assume that is what they want after displacment since almost all enclosure modeling software does not caluclate for it.

If you're not going to run 5kw id recommend 6-8 cubes tuned to 32-35 hz. Every solo x i've heard murders low notes
I have heard 2 18" SoloX's.. tuned to 35hz.. that tuning is the recommened way to go, you wont be disappointed on those higher notes, but IMO not that great on the low end.

did Dr. Subwoofer tell you to tune to 35 hz? And i'm pretty sure 10 cubes is pretty damn big for an 18...but i've never ran a solo x...what power do you have going to it
You're from Lexington, KY? That is awesome, man. Because that's exactly where I live. What system you got, if you don't mind me asking. I got two tens (L7 kicker) powered by KX1200.1. Planning to upgrade next year or so.

So i have been reading up on the forum and it seams no one is going by kicker specs on there boxes? The reason I wanted to do 10cuft was because thats on the manuel. I had 2 kicker l7 15s in 6cuft each and I liked them, wich is what they recomend. but Im new and dont realy have.anything to compare too. So thats why I wanted to go by the manuel. So what would you guys recomend? Im still waning to go 49inches long by 20-21 inches high to cover up all the space in my.avalanche midagate, if it can be done that is?
Ps I have seen those m
Since I had it handy - I checked the Kicker U Lite app on my phone.
Min Ported is 5.048cf NET airspace ( after displacement )
Max Ported is 10.002cf NET
Both say tune to 35hz for best performance.
Id put it between 6.5-8.5cf after displacement @ 35hz tuning !
Also says "Slot Port Dimensions: 60 sq. in. x 15" long" if that helps any with building box.
Doesnt give me any form of dimensions for ported box, but it gives me the panel dimensions for sealed.
Doubt you wanna go with sealed for this build but Ill throw it out there anyways since the app provides it.
Min Sealed is 6.038cf
Max Sealed is 12.024
1/0 Power Wire All Around + Big 3 - $140
Rockford Fosgate T2500-1BD - MSRP $1800
(4) Memphis M3 10" Subwoofers 1600watts $300ea. = $1200
XS D6500 $245.65
PIONEER AVH-P5200DVD 7" Head Unit = $430
Soundstream SC-6T Component 6.5" FRONT $60
Pioneer TS-A1673R 6.5" REAR $85
A Bangin system! = PRICELESS!
