thanks bro :) [my 2nd post now btw]. I hope it pounds. cause I already have two kicker C12's in a sealed enclosure and it pounds with like 200rms to each sub. broke my third taillight and my antenna fell off and such.

I'm excited to see what a tline will do to my car O_o hehehe

I wouldn't tune it to 26 hz, waay to low, mine is tuned to 27 hz, and is way too low for normal songs.

Maybe try 30hz, i think that wouldn't be too low, nor too high.

They do sound really clean and louder then every ported box.

If it's tuned that low, you get quite a lot more excursion at 33-37 hz.

But it's just nutz on the lows, and mine peaks at around 35-36 hertz, so it's the loudest at 35-36hertz at the same amount of power.

thats awesome. i tried to listen to your vids to get an idea, but then I realized I left my headphones at college and my laptop speakers wont reproduce the sound I wanna hear anyway lol

Plus, I think this build is gonna be temp until i get around to glassing the trunk ^_^ so if i dont like it, i'll only be dealing till summertime.

maybe I'll end up using it inside after i pull it outta the car or something :)

thanks for taking the time to chat.

Can anyone give me guidance on a T-Line for a dual 2 ohm Kicker CVR 12''?

It will be going in a blazer so space should not be an issue.

I don't need a box design, just how much square port area I need and how ling the port length should be.

BL is 14.05

FS is 26.7

SD is 0.0531

I never would have thought the FS would be that low on this woofer. Should I go for a higher FS tuning like 30 or 33hz?

Thanks a bunch.
