I need help designing a box for a friend. The whole porting thing kinda confuses me. We're running 4 Sundown Audio e-12s off a Hifonics Elite BRE2500.1 Its going in his Ford Explorer SUV and he wants to do subs up, port up, if at all possible. I got measurements today and his max dimensions are 41" wide by 18.5" tall and max 33" deep. We want to definatly make it 41" wide and 18.5" tall so it fills up the back from wheel well to opposite wheel well, and we want it 18.5" tall so it sits flush to the height of the back seats. The 33" deep is just a maximum, it will probly need to be less than the full 33" cuz with that dimension it would probly have too much volume for the subs. Sundown recommended specs are 2ft^3 per subs @ 35 hz, but we both really love the lows and are thinking of doing something along the lines of 32hz. I run 3 SA8 V2s on 2400RMS @ 32 hz and 1.8 ft^3 and the 32 hz definatly sounds great so I'm not all that worried about tuning to 32hz instead of 35hz... So anyway I'm not a total noob at car audio, I just don't know all that much about designing boxes. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I'd gladly send some money via paypal if your willing to help me out on a good design. Thanks
Hey everyone, I will be picking up an E12d2 V3 in the next week or so. They look pretty mean. This will be my first Sundown product and my first self-install. I previously ran 2 15" Rockford Fosgate Punch HX2s in my suburban. I'll be installing the E12 in my 2012 TC. I'll have it wired at 1 ohm and feeding it 600w rms. Think Sundown's page recommends a 1.75 cu ft ported box. So far I've only been seeing setups with multiple subs, so I don't really have much to go off of in terms of what to expect. Since I'm limited on space in my TC, I wont be running multiple subs or a giant box. Does anyone have or has anyone seen a single E12 perform in similar setups? This is sort of a budget install, so I'm not interested on upgrading to the SA series even though it's "only $100 more." If I still had my suburban, I'd consider it (or even the X series) due to having a lot more space to work with. But I don't. Any recommendations on box size, placement of enclosure, photos of your setup, or just reviews on the E12's performance is greatly appreciated. Thanks
