New build 2 15s


Recommended Posts

So I finally got my 15s built by the lord of bass. About to start the new build around the first of the year in my 06 Silverado crew cab. I’m building my box it will be tuned around 28hz about 4 cubes per sub after displacement and it will be a no wall build what do y’all think trying to get a little windy for this one. I’m running a audio apex cab 22

So I’m fixing to start building my box this week and was wondering how I should do my port and sub placement. I’m doing a no wall and trying to get windy I was thinking of doing my subs up and port facing towards the front  or should I do subs up and port up which do y’all think I should do. It’s gonna be 8 cubes after displacement of port and I’m gonna be tuning around 28hz

So, most of the time, you see sub up, port back. Essentially, the air bounces off the rear of the vehicle, and gains energy as it reaches the front. 

You do see sub up, port up quite a bit as well. 

Truth is, you won't know which sounds better in your truck unless you try both. 

How wide is your port going to be, and how far away from the rear can you get it? Usually, you want to be the width of your port away from any wall. So if your port is 8" wide, you want 8" away from any surface. If you can't get that distance because of the size of the box, then try sub and port up.

I’m not sure yet on how big my port is gonna be yet I haven’t start to do any number crunching yet but I was thinking of doing the port basically the whole width of the box kinda like this box that I built for a Tahoe awhile back
