Hey guys, I am new to this forum and would appreciate all the feedback I can get! Decided to go with sundown because of all the positive reviews and great community!

Anyways I want to build something that will give me the bump I am looking for in my daily driver. I had 2 15 kicker l7s previously with rated rms. This will be for a 2012 chevy Tahoe with alot of room to work with. After tons of research I have decided I really like the X series.

I am thinking about ordering 2 x15's with an either sundown4000.1 or the skar 4500.1 (little cheaper) (student loan life) and building a custom ported box to spec. Now with it tuned correctly and installed correctly, do you guys recommend upgrading electrical for this set up? All feedback is greatly appreciated, and suggestions are welcomed.

Electrical upgrades are recommended.  At least upgrade your big 3/4, but a new alt and more batteries never hurts if you plan on supplying steady voltage and current to a big ass amp that is pushing those monsters..

Solid 4 hour drive. I am in Fort Lauderdale. How much did you want for the enclosure


Oh mine isn't for sale but I would have helped you build one just like it since I have the blue prints and it was for the x15s so its perfect for your suv.

but mine is birch which is a bit more than MDF but its a lot lighter! birch is like $50 a sheet and this 8.5 cubes takes 3 sheets with no mess ups.

plus screws, glue, caulk, carpet and terminal posts. 

 

I do have a table saw and router and everything else and I did  build this one myself.

      I've spec'd out a box using WINISD and Torres for my DC Audio Level 4 12" D1, and I want to make sure I get a second opinion on it before pulling the trigger. I plan on doing a plexi-glass panel on the front of the box to show off the motor and basket, so I want to make sure the box is right the first time around.
      Here's the sub porn pics:



      The sub box is 2.5 ft^3 Net with a 6" aeroport at 22" long tuned to 34 HZ. Plan to use a big ass port with an elbow to accomplish that length of port in this box so that both sub and port fire upwards. Dimensions are 15"hX15"dX33"w with a double baffle on the top (15"x33").
      My biggest concern is if this box is too big for this sub. This seems to be the only size I was able to get this sub to play out well in WINISD with 1500 watts being put to it at a 2ohm load. I gained over 3.5 db on the Transfer Function Magnitude chart at roughly 44hz, and managed to keep the Port Velocity below 31.88 m/s peak, peak being at roughly 32 HZ. I also managed to keep the peak excursion at 22.3mm at 25 HZ, so the sub should never bottom out on even the lowest notes.
      Does anyone see any improvements that can be made on this design? Or does anyone think this box is too big for this sub, who can manage to get proper port area for this sub with 1500 watts at 2 ohms to it without adding 1+ cubes to the box size in doing so?
      Thanks guys!
