ya im gonna seal it off nice and make a panel for the back wall.the wires are just gonna be ran thru the port,that was the easiest and it dont look THAT bad.all other wires will be hid when i mount the amp.KX600. its just laying behind the seat for now ,but its bangin HARD!!Got to be the best sub for the money.and Malik,it is the same amp that was on the L5.
probably should have made the hole big enough for the sub to fit in and to where you could mount part of the box inside, but other than that it looks good. I guess I'm just used to seeing professionally done blowthroughs
well thanks for the comments guys,I just got back from wangin in the walmart parking lot for about an hour to get a feel for this sub.I built the box exactly like they called for 4cu afte displacment tuned to 40hz,port 4"by 16.25tall by 16 long and boy does it NOT peak spl at 40hz.It hits wayyyyy lowwww.must be the truck bringin the tunin down.playin test tones ,by ear,it feels like at about 28 hz is the loudest.maybe high 130s.I almost made the port longer for lower tuning in the initil build,Glad I didnt.as it is ,spl seems to start roling off at about38-40hz.That 8"by 16" opening beside the sub is just a bit tunnel to bring the bass from the port(which runs behind the sub and fires to the side)into the cab.So far the AQ 2.5 is an excellent clean sounding subwith some mean lows.cant imagine how low yall guys tuned to 30-35hz sounds.I say this sub is a buy buy buy on abudget single set up or go like trell and get 2.This sub must be GREATLY underrated at 500wts.I got 689 rms (kx600.1) on it and it seems like it could take more.I love it!now just to carpet the back wall and mount the amp and I ll be good(for now)lol
the resonating chamber probably lowers your tune some. believe it or not there is math behind the resonating chamber which i do not know but it can be beneficial (as it seems to be in your case). glad you like it 8)
