Hey i have 2 kicker vr comp 15's in a small box because of the lack of space i have, its at the lowest cf it can be.. i have like a pound of polly fill in her or alittle less. I was thinking of throwing a port dead smack in the middle. i have a rf1001 bd amp. what do yous suggest..?i want her loudER email me, send an instant message at sean001134 or just reply to this.. here are some links for pictures of my setup
if i was you, i would try making a bigger box, but flatten it out so you used all the space avalable, then make a slot port towards the and of the box by the trunk, or 2 ports right in the middle like you said, i think either would work fine
for one i didnt say i was willing to go build another box : ( i just wanted to kno if it would be louder if i threw a port in the middle as everything is set up now... i dont feel like having to make a whole nother box it was harder then u think.
a port would be alright, but you would be much better off moving the box in towards your rear seat, and remaking part of it. If you move it in towards the seat you can make it taller thus giving you more room, thus in essence making them louder, plus you could then mount your amp on the back of the box. Plus the that if you wanted you could then ad a port or 2 to the back of the box, aimed at the rear of the car which should help tremendously. Just an idea. I know you don't want to make another box, but redoing the spreaders should be fairly easy.
hey koz yeah you just gave me the sickest idea check out this attacment picture i just drew up...i'll have to calculate all of my cf.. what do you think is the best cf for 2 kicker vr comp 15's ported anyone? also how many ports? where at? how to make a good port.. please help me : ) i'll probably just build another box shouldnt be to0 hard just better be worth it right lol
Sean nice idea the only thing I see tghat I would change would be to angle the sub end just a bit to get the sound waves bouncing off the roof. If you figure the angle of the dangle right you should be able to pop your head off your shoulders if you know what I mean. lol Also you may want to run a center divider and then run 2 ports, but I personally like the from port idea better. Or you could refine it a little further and run a slot port over the top of the two subs. I gotta picture of one somewhere, I'll look it up in the morning, and try to post the general idea if you don't understand what I'm saying. That drawing looks a lot like something that goes into a camaro. What are you drivin?? What freq. you tuning to.? And on the lighter side, I see you are from long neck Del. You couuld always find one of those plastic bud bottle banks and cut it in half and mount it to the top of the box. lol. That thing is gonna take up your whole hatch man. That ought to be awsome to look at. Besides the cubes you are gonna get out of a box that freaking big. I'd like to hear that.
thanks thanks.. im driving an 89 rs camaro i love to build stuff and look at it as a challenge! i love your idea of slot ports on top of each sub with a divider in the middle hah omg so sicK!!! here's the link on cardomain.. my cars in the shop getting painted , sheduled for this week.. when i get it back i will begin the build up. we'll talk about it tommorrow.. i have nothin else to do tomorrow lol ttyt thanks for the help!
sean; don't think he's puttin em on top of the subs. from the drawing he's putting them back by the hatch or where his subs are setting now.
sean G. the only other thing I can think of is maybe putting a wall x amount back from the subs and hinging the top. That way you could put the amp where it couldn't be seen. Hope that makes sense. I'll try and draw you something up in the morning, or tomorrow evening after work.
silver member sean; answer your email lol i gotta get to bed. I get up at 4 in the morning, and it's 12 now.
damn ur on a hard schedule there koz lol.. i was thinken ports here? but i think they have to be close to the mdf like 3-4 inches and not be air born like this.. im not sure help me out heres a new pic of what im talken about.. i want to see ur pics on what u would think!! thanks for the help tonz
1 on each side of the divider? wont that like make my hatch window blow up lol...maybe i could do this on each side? like this.. any other suggestions? SPL!!!! i want it as much as possible lol.. anyone want to draw up a pic like me it would be greatly appreciated
sean G. send me your e-mail address and I'll fire you some drawings and let you know some other things I thought of as an afterthought. Mine is email@example.com I got it drawn up but can't seem to get it imported to here, I'll just attatch it to an email, then we can disscuss. Ok By the way sorry I didn't get on lastnight, but I was in bed at like 9:15. 12 hr days are a killer.
