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!

well first of all i hear for it to be ideal the sub should have a qts rating of .5 and up. the zv4 rev2 15 d2 has a qts of .45. but im sure someone will say, you wont know how it sounds until you try it lol but so far as what i know people typically shoot for a 2:1 ratio. (1 sealed 2 ported) and ported section tuned no lower than 40hz, depending on the bandwidth youre aiming for. a software like bassbox pro will help a lot in seeing what the enclosure can produce. @Triticum Agricolam might be able to help you in this more that i can. i yet have the chance to build one myself lol

 

and im wondering if sundown doesnt give you a sealed spec because of the low qts... :huh: but you see them in 4th orders all the time lol

      So I have a zv3 12 now. Im upgrading parts to a 15" zv4 frame, zv4 spl soft parts/zv4 coil, and night shade spider. Im only keeping the zv3 motor. I am looking for a zv3, any size, 10 through 18. I just need the motor, also if its blown or working, i still want it. Id rather get a blown one for the price difference though. If you have a blown zv3 or know anyone with even just a zv3 motor, let me know. Thanks guys

      Hey everyone! i have this old sub in my collection and i'm going to build a box for it in my truck, but i cannot for the life of me find the specs, after days of frustrating googles i can only find subs with the the 12 spoke basket. anyone have any info on this fella? is it the same specs as the 12 spoke?
