ooooooooooooo weeeee!  Those 2 pics are HOT!  Those 12s look so good.  If shit was mine i'd do half inverted.  The baskets match so good but so do the cones for the build scheme.  Its like either way you cant go wrong so why not do both LOL!   Big dawg shit @meade916

Can't do inverted subs in the caddy. Trying to keep it classy.  Ill be able to see them through some acrylic i'm sure though. Thanks man!! :)

First i started out wanting 2 15's...then i wanted 4. Then i was short on space...actual surface area NOT ft3.  Plenty of ft3 just couldn't get the configuration the way i wanted it. So i decided on 6 12's instead.  After building the amp rack and chewing up a little more space than i anticipated, this has been a challenge to fit as well.  Below are some photo's of what i THINK i am going to try.  I REALLY needed the extra 2.5" or so that this provided me so i could port backwards the way i want to.  

 

Long story short, if i hate the way it sounds, which i don't think i will...but if i do. I will say F it and just do 2 15's and call it done.  For sure 2 15" subs is completely ideal. I just wanted to do something badass and fun.

The rear facing subs shown in the above pictures will actually come down a little bit revealing even more of the baskets and suspensions of the upward facing subs.  An all clear (and some mirrors) 1" acrylic box should make this thing look like a nuclear bomb of some sort once built.  I totally plan on trimming it out and making it NOT look like a big box just sitting in the back. First thing is first, build it, THEN make it pretty.

As you can see, it seems tall...but it isn't really too bad.  Just barely peeps at glass/hatch level.  The clear acrylic will show those subs like no other and should be a site to see if i can pull this off.

Looks kinda tall with hatch open, but that is mainly because the paper on it looks like a big slab of wood. When i pull that paper off and reveal what it looks like it should be much nicer.  With the hatch closed and the glass open you can see it isn't super tall at all. It's just right.

  • meade916 changed the title to 2015 Cadillac Escalade Sound System Install - The Box is started! 6 12" Subs, Clear Acrylic on the menu! Update page 10

Almost forgot about the 2 braces that will go in between the 12's.  Some B2 logo's i just had to put in them.  This is just a tester on some scrap but if it works i will make the 2nd one and drop it in when the time comes.

So just thinking about how you tiered the amp rack, maybe it’s too late but you could do 2 tiers of subs and have them at an angle and slightly overlapped like the amps are so it would all tie together style-wise and keep all the subs firing the same direction. Think about it.

not looking for any advice at the moment but thanks for offering.

Yea I wasnt sure if you doing acryllic box.  Def classier too with them mounted normally, acryllic will show off the baskets and color scheme.  Where is the 2.5" of space you need thats missing? The width just not enough for something your trying to do?  Seems you got the height and depth you could use.
