Change of plans, going from aero port now to a slot port due to a variety of factors...
Subs: 2 x Sundown SA-12s dual 4-ohm
Amp: 2 old school Kicker ZR360s bridged @ 2ohm, 1 per subwoofer (~700 watts RMS per sub)
Vehicle: 2008 extended cab Dakota.
I know I want a total volume of 4 cubic feet after displacement and tuned to 32Hz using a slot port in the middle using 3/4" MDF
I'm looking at 24" tall x 14" deep, the width is the variable I can change to get the proper box volume (prob around 38" wide or so). I am wanting a double baffle to sink the subs into as well.
I was going to run subs facing front, port on front and in the middle of the subs, similar to the attached example. This is just an example and I am open to your ideas!
Keeping in mind that the box is going to have to be tall, wide and shallow overall. The subs will be on the front face behind the seats, at the bottom of the box so that they do not hit the back of the seats. This means that the port is prob going to be roughly 2.5" wide but 22.5" tall. Is that going to be a problem at all being that skinny and long?
I would like to keep it stealthy and not visible from the outside unless you think that subs up / port forward will give me better results or a more efficient box. If so, I will change it.
If someone could please give me some ideas, and mock it up in sketch-up or something, maybe even a cut sheet. And please run the design through WinISD or some sort of modeling software to ensure port velocity is low at 32Hz and ~1400 watts at 4 cu. ft. on the pair of SA-12s
Keep in mind, my amplifier power is limited, so I'm trying to make it as efficient as I can.
Thank you all very much, I've learned a ton on this forum!
