  1. okay so could anyone help me with a six order for this sub. It’s 1 12 so I don’t think size should be an issue I have a whole trunk Hey guys so I have 1 sundown nsv3 12 on a crescendo 3k in a 2008 Acura TL type s. I was wanting to get some help in building a design for it. I’m currently running my 3ft^3 box at 27hz slot port but I’ve noticed all the 150+ db builds have aero ports in the drivers side of the box and subs facing forwards or backwards. Kinda want to see want you guys think and I’m very open to trying 6th orders as well they just seem complicated Still need to get my 370amp alternator and 48 ah headway hooked up with 2 runs of 0 gauge so don’t mind the 4 gauge splitter lol
  2. Hello everyone I’m looking for help making a enclosure design for a single x15v1 My max dimensions are 36wide 19 tall and 17 deep with port and sub up
  3. I am about to build this box in 2 hours with a friend, so any quick input would be nice, I did a lot of calculation, tried to keep port bends as low as possible, only 1 bend, port area I think is good, especially since im putting these 2 subs on 2.5x power daily, a kicker zx2500.1 for 2 Sundown SA-12's Let me know if you would change anything quick, from what I can see its setup well, but when you been working on something for the last 6 hours you sometimes miss stuff in torres calc it wasn't calculating the port area correctly, so I found the box internal volume after all displacements and then acted like the port was external to the box, winISD and torres gave me the same tuning when calculating it that way, I am going for 34hz with 3.22 cubes inside, I would have went bigger with the box but with the extra power I need a bit smaller airspace for sub control, I measured the Port Length right down the middle which is what your supposed to do I believe Just let me know if I messed up on anything, even if you look at it quick, at least say yea or no or something, THANKS A BUNCH GUYS!!!
  4. custom 3.8 net cubes with 2x 2.5 inch round ports at 5 inches long with to SA 12's rear baffle lined with fleece.Decent sq but prefab Q slot port sounded better WTF?
  5. I would like someone to design a box for a zvx 15 that is ported at @32hz and is 3 ft^3, the cut out is 13.9, sub woofer displacement is 0.17 ft^3 , and the mounting depth is 9.3. It will be a trunk box so port back sub back and would like it to be double baffled, willing to pay for a good design thanks!!!! Will be running an aq2200 in a 1995 toyota avalon xl 30x18x17
  6. Hey SMD, Been a crazy few days over here in Marina Del Rey just kick ass and taking names on some car audio builds. I have been getting more calls for 911 audio work these days than the Cops. Here is a sweet old school Porsche Turbo 930 that we install a full custom audio system. We went with the pioneer DEH-80PRS deck to get a stron source unit that does iPod, Bluetooth, and 24 bit DAC and has a pro mode so we can run High MID LOW instead of Front Rear and SUB. We chose Focal P165V30 30th Anniversary edition Front Components, PC130 for the rears We powered the system with a JL Audio XD700.5 and used a Kenwood eXcelon 10" shallow sub! Hope you enjoy! Here's some photos of the build
  7. I picked up an AQ HDC3 15" dual 2 (copper coil) and need to build an enclosure. The tricky part is getting it between the bucket seats in my 1994 regular cab chevy pickup truck. I plan to do a slot port enclosure, but have no idea what frequency I should tune to or how many cubes I should shoot for. I couldn't find the info on audioque's website. I planned to mount the sub facing the dash with the port on the floor and also facing the dash as I had some success with a similar box setup. Variation suggestions in this are also very welcome. If I am leaving anything out please let me know. Thank you in advance for any suggestions. And sorry if I'm posting incorrectly..noob here.
  8. Hey, im new to car audio, im 18 work for minimum wage. I drive a 95 civic ex, so far i have a false floor in with a hifonics 1500d amp mounted to it with a Sa-12 in a prefab box i got for free. I just purchased a table saw and now have everything i need for box building. I was wondering if anyone had a design for Sa-12 box. preferably 35hz tuned. If anyone could give me dimensions with port/vent included. I was looking at doing an aero port if anyone can include that in a design or dimensions please include where to put the port, how long, diameter etc. Thanks in advance please reply!
  9. Whats up everyone, i'm new here and I'm really getting into car audio. Right now I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado that I threw 2 shallow P3 12's in. I really want something louder. I'm not quite ready to do a blow through, so I want my first build to be 4 Sundown SA-8's underneath the rear seat, facing the front. I want two 4" ports, one on each side. I'm extremely new to box building, but I learn very fast. I have a few questions, and I would also really appreciate some pointers & tips. Question #1: Since I want 4 subs with a port on each side of the box, am I going to need to put a center divider in the center of the box, so that I create two chambers, each with two subs and a 4" port? Question #2: The SA-8's recommended box volume is .5-.75 cu. ft. so should I simply take .5 and times it by four, giving me a 2 cu. ft. box volume for the 4 subs? That's all the questions I can think of...for now. Any tips or other help is GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks, Mike
  10. i have 2 sundown sa12s in a L-ported box that i made and its tuned to 29hz and about 4.4cubes before sub displacement. it has 45 in all corners. It moves a decent amount of air.. but i think it could move alot more. ive seen people with trunk cars move more air with the same subs. im looking for ideas on a new box, even though i just build this one i still want a better one, and im thinking of using an aero port(s) instead of an L-port design since ive been researching some and that seems to be the way to go. My current setup is Subs up port up but i was thinking of doing Subs up port(s) forward and im also looking to keep the same tuning of 29 hz seeing as it seems to do good in my truck. btw i have an extended cab truck. Would that be the best setup for moving air? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. haha
  11. Ok so I have now got a design for 2 DD 9518's. I have people telling me the woofers will have a hard time being that they will kind of choked would you say? Well anyway the design is for daily and SPL. It is tuned to 37hz, has 12.5 cubes and 205 square inches of port area. This will go in a 1998 corolla. How do you think this design would be for them? ***Below is the design.
  12. Hey there I'm decently new to the box building part of car audio and I needed some help building a ported box for my 2 kicker s10l5's, The max dimensions I can use are 24'' for the height, 40'' for the width, and 18 for the depth. Also is there an easy way to tune the box? I was looking for around 35 Hz
  13. Anyone know if this type of port division would cause any issues? 3 inches wide, 26 inches long total. 2 12" DC LVL 4's SUBS FACING UP!
  14. I just built a box for 4 12's but after doing so i started thinking about how to make it much louder, i want a lot of spl, my cars resonant frequency is 49htz would it be louder at like 34htz or if i made a box tuned at around 40htz?
  15. I was wanting some opinions on whether I should port this box or not. It's right at 3^ft after sub and brace displacement. There will be 4 skar vvx 10s in it running off a crescendo bc2000d. That is an amp rack on top in case anyone doesn't know. Thanks for your time.
  16. i have a box made for my full size blazer with 4 pa mojo 15s 38wx32dx20h and i want to tune it to 35hz. can someone please help me figure out what size my port should be?
  17. hello everyone!! Looking to build a box in my trunk . walled off . I don't have the tools or a shop. So my question for everyone one out there is: Does anyone know of a GOOD shop in the Columbus ,Ohio area. perferable with experience of walling a trunk. I have to get the pressure off my trunk lid. It is ripping at the hinge mounts. my car hates me...lol
  18. Im confused as to what dimensions my box needs to be for the SA-8 i got in the mail, i know .6 cubes and around 35 Hz, but i don't know how to construct it, i am a noob, i do need to be walked through on certain things. thanks.
  19. Hi, I recently purchased and installed my first sub system: Kenwood 9105D Mono-Amp @ 1800w max / 900 rms(2ohm) Dual Kenwood 12" w3013ps subs (bridged @ 2 ohms, 450rms per sub(400rms-1200w peak)) w/ 34-300 freq. response, recommended ported enclosure @ 2 cft tuned to 34hz 4 Gage power wires, 12 gage speaker wire, gold plated terminals etc Got most of it on sale, cost about $350 for everything from sonic electronix and crutchfield. The subs are in a Sound Ordnance dual 12 inch ported enclosure @ 1.63 cft per chamber, tuned at 33hz The subs sound too high pitched of bass, it's LOUD and shakes most of the car, it just doesn't sound quite right, I believe it has to do with the enclosure size and bad box tuning but I wanted to make sure, that's why I'm asking here. So my question is this, is the bass problem the size of the box, the tuning, or the high freq. response of the subs? or a mix of some of these. Right now the subs don't play below 40hz very well which I'm sure is because of the tuning and size of the box. I'm more than willing to build a box for these but I'm not sure if it's worth it if the subs still wont touch anything below 34hz, I see a lot of people here with boxes tuned to 30hz or less and I'm wondering if I should tune that low even though my response is only 34hz. Should I just buy new subs? Most of my music doesn't hit lower than 34hz but still, I want some ground pouding bass every once in a while, can't really afford anything much bigger right now with my financial situation. Any info would be helpful I'm just looking to soak up some data since I'm a beginner, a lot of the topics here are very helpful. Thanks!
  20. Hey guys I didn't now whether t post this here or in the enclosures section but here we go. I would like to build a custom ported subwoofer box for my 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I have 36 inches wide to work with and 31 tall. Any help would be much appreciated. Oh and this is for 2 DC level 3s 15".
  21. Ive been looking but havent seen anyone really do (3) v3 z18 subs. i just got 3 of them and have 3 hifonics brutus 2100d and am curious has anyone had experience with these subwoofers? Sundown says 4 ft^3 and that sounds too small. Also, this is my first real system, gathering everything i think i need. Input appreciated.

  25. Hello everyone, I am planning on building my own single 12 SEALED box for my sub. The sub recommendations for the box volume is 1.37 cubic feet. I'm new to this stuff so can anyone just give me measurements of wood i need so i can go cut it and put it together? I'm going to use 3/4 MDF wood. Just give me the height X width of each side i need. please and thank you very much.
