Here is the dilemma I don't know a whole lot about what Im doing. I currently have a single 10" Kicker Comp. It does decent but i like my bass and i want to upgrade. Im getting 2 Rockford Fosgate P2's plus an amp to push them. In a basic box most of the room in the back seat area of my extended cab Chevy Colorado would be taken up, so I wanna build a bigger box and take the whole area up. My concern is the box will be to big. I have checked the specs and the box design i have drawn up has about 4.06 cubic feet while 2 P2's maxed out only need 2.8 cubic feet. Would this be a wise decision? My next though is to go ahead and put 3 subs in the box which would bring my total needed space up to 4.2 cubic feet. But im getting a extremely good deal on just 2 subs from a very respectable friend and don't want to fork out the rear end for another. Please help me out here. Thanks DJ.

If your on a budget i'd say go smaller on the design so you don't have to buy another sub. If you have the money for the third sub and your amp will push all three fine go for the bigger design and put three in there.

That's my suggestion based off of what you've said with no looking into specs on any of the equipment myself.

      I'm looking at building my first 4th order for a sundown zv4 rev2 15"d2. I have experience building custom boxes but have never built a bandpass. I'm not sure on what ratio to go with. I like lows but would really like something musical. It's going in a extended cab f150 powered by a shark [email protected] Could someone tell me how many cubes for the sealed and ported side and how many sqin my port should be and what's the best to tune it at? Any info is greatly appreciated!

      Looking for an cheaper replacement bass knob for my Rockford Punch700s (2000-2003). I'm sure you guys have covered this topic before on the forum but I'm new and it's driving me crazy. I can't justify spending $60-100 on a simple potentiometer and a phone cable. Thanks in advance.

      Right now I have a T3 components in the doors, T1652s in the rear (T400-4 amp) and 2 P212s (R5001xd 619 @ 1 ohm birthsheet). Ive been looking all over for an upgrade, first I thought maybe T015s and a T1500 amp. That set up would've costed me 3500 and it would've just been a big ass box in my sedan's trunk, likely not what the subwoofers really want or need. I then bought some 12s HDC3s and I sold them to someone else after being convinced the same thing. I started looking into DD and the size of their boxes are crazy big (and I do not want one subwoofer). So now I'm looking at having four P3D410s in a "show build" powered by 2 prime 1200s. With that said, I'd have more than double the cone area and more than double the power (does this mean I'll increase by 6 decibels?) 
       
      What do you think of the build in question? Will I be impressed? Should I get a box for this or should I let them just make this "show build"? Meaning they'd want me to appear at shows to show off their work. I'll answer all questions! Links to videos of your own 10s would be acceptable as well.
