This is in my ext cab f150 sub/port facing the rear of the cab.
As for power. Right now all I have is a bb2400 running at 1ohm.
Stock for the next few weeks. Gonna be getting my big 3 done and a xs d3100 under the hood

Box is 3.9ft^3 tuned to 32hz
Port 15.5x3.25
I didn't do the 45s in it tho.

I don't really listen to decaf music. Mostly a lot of techn9ne,e-40,juicy j, yelawolf, tyga just whatever new is out.

Wanting to get this thing going louder. So far it's actually a bit quieter then my rockford t1 that was tuned to 33hz.

Should I tune higher?
More port?

Real question is, of your not looking to play decaf and stupid lows. Why are you looking at an X series instead of an SA or a Z?? Sundown has different levels of subs, you cant just pick one because it sounds cool.

I got it because a friend wasn't happy with it and gave it to me for cheap. So I'm trying to make the best out of it until I can sell it for a sub that suits me best.

I wish I had the money so I could do that.

Hey not to be negative Sky, but I've been waiting for threads to start popping up where people are unhappy with the X series. I personally think it's a capable, badass sub in the RIGHT enclosure. Do your know the details of why your buddy wasn't happy with his? I've been telling guys to feed these damn things a lot of port and a decent amount of airspace, but they aren't choosing to do that. This is why I believe guys will be unhappy, because they are cheating the sub from what it needs to perform WELL.

Sorry for the rant dude, it's just upsetting that someone drops $300+ and doesn't build a good enclosure. I'm hoping enough word gets out and that guys start building appropriately. If you know the details of your friend's box he had this in, I'd be happy to know them.


Im not the one you want to try to troll. Just a fyi for you.

Btw, I'd run more port than you have planned for that sub. Like in the 70" range. That would require you to make the box wider, like 8" wider with another 1" width on port. Double baffle as well, without question.

As CleanSierra has pointed out, not all subs are created equal.
Based on some boxes I have done in my GM ext cab. Sub up/port back (box as center console) and sub up/port side (box on ext cab bench). sub up/port up didnt sound as good.

What did you use to come up with your box size and numbers?

He had the box I posted. Had it made at ram designs. Its in my truck right now bumping but not like I figured this beast of a sub to. It's very sq right now and the dust cap gets warm after a good 10-15min of playing. He also had a rockford t1 15 just like me and he said his t1 was out doing the x so he gave it to me.

I'm in the same boat it's barely competing with the t1. Sq wise is great but pure loudness nothing special.

The box for the t1 is basically the same thing as this except 6inches shorter.

Just from the looks of this thing I know it should be on a whole other level. But getting there is my question.
