To go in this.

Going with an 8 cube sealed box with 1 1/8 thick MDF. Had to order it so that won't be in until next week. Amp I am still undecided on. I may just order another 1608d and run two on the one sub or go with a Colossus. I want to stay around 3200 watts.

I'll post more as I start building the box.

Why are you going sealed on that beast? Ported would Def. be the way to go to get that thing to come to life.

System tear out has begun...Out with the old

i have a iq of 128 i graduated at the top of my class tell me how im reatrded you are the 1 thats dumb as hell you can't even spell

Look at the underlined text hahahahahahahaha

I think of it as the virgin losing the virginity technique

not just jumping in to it, and pounding away, but going at it slowly over time, to get to that full extreme

they arent that great sealed...ported is what they like

and they arent underrating that 3200watts at all, its an spl sub, its meant for a burp. 5-10k it will hold on a burp no problem. play it for half an hour with 4k and it'll blow

2000-2500 is all it reliably takes daily, atleast in my experience (after the 5th spair on the same car and my kicker rep wouldnt give us a hookup anymore)

just think about the dc lvl 5, 2000wrms, 20k max...thats where that 10k on the solo-x comes from, its about all it can hold on a burp...putting more than like 3k on it is asking for some burnt copper

This is the reason of going sealed and 3200 watts... It's for everyday use. I'm also building the box at specs for a ported enclosure in case i dont like it sealed. I am firing the sub up and want the front to be plexi, but unsure of that as of now. I'd love to show that beast off. :spiteful:

Edit: plus we all know Hifonics amps are a little over rated. Says 3200...probably 2800 ish.

I would take the Colossus over the two 1608's anyday. As for the daily comment, I think that motor would stay cooler in a ported box rather than sealed. Ported on 3200 watts daily= a gooood time.

Yea I have been torn between the two and figured with the way I am building the box, it leaves me the option to port. 38x23x23 estimate. Thats roughly 8.9 cubes, then figure in bracing, sub and possible port...should be close to 7.5 to 8 ported.

Whats funny, is Kicker actually recommends the sub in a sealed box for everyday use and ported for SPL. I dont know. I haven't got the wood yet, just a woody. :o
