Box build for a 2015 Mini cooper help needed

Recommended Posts

Long time no see SMD fam!


I've got a 2015 Mini cooper s that I'm currently running 2 DC M3 8s on a Taramps Bass 1200.  backed up by a 180 amp alt and a 48ah bank of headways (overkill electrical is best electrical).


I find myself wanting more boom.  I've been looking at some decent budget stuff and have landed on a single 1500 rms Skar VxF 12 and a Skar Skv2 1500.1 to match with it.


Being a Mini, space is at a premium, so I'm wondering if any box pros could help with a design for me?


Total dimensions available are:

37" width

13.5" height

17.5" depth at bottom

12" depth at top


So kind of a wedge design probably.


I'd like to go ported if possible, tuned in the low to mid 30s to still be musical but handle rebassed stuff well too


So what do you all think?  is there any hope?

What's the pole vent diameter of that sub?

I can't find anything specific but from photos it looks like it's 1" maybe 1.5"    I do see that mounting depth is 8.5" with a motor diameter of 8.6"


Also, should I try to do sub and port back or sub back port up?  


I'm pretty handy with wood cuts so it doesn't matter about slot or round port, I'm easy
