Always been a caraudioaficianado, building my own boxes etc with good results. But I am stuck, somebody stop me before I waste a lot of time & money guessing at building my first sealed bandpass box for 2 10" Duel 400w subs that will be driven by a 1000w kenwood. I need to keep it solid/low/flat, not the sound just the box. I have the whole floor behind the rear seat to tailgate, about a sq. yard of my 93 Pajero. Can I face the woofers down against the bed and build a srtong/low +/- 8-9" thick box over them? Dimensions pleez/advice? t.i.a.}}

build the box the way I did one in an old first gen Integra for a co-worker once. Put the two subs side by side in a box, sealed behind, ported in front (4th order) and tilt the entire enclosure design forward, like a parallelogram. the subs will lean forward in the baffle at about 45 degrees, and just calculate the box as if it was square/upright, then make all the cuts at 45 degrees to lean everything forward. You can then tuck the amp to the box on the overhanging angle to hide it from top view. Works great in hatchbacks and such when you wnt the box kept less than the full diameter of the speakers in height.

Also yes, dump anything made by Kenwood or Duel. Neither one is any good really.

You guys are a bunch of elitists, granted kenwood jumped the shark a long timebut Duel, for the money, hasn't disappointed, so without judging my equipment, can some body just give me the required interior volu me for 2 10" subs, and how do I make it deep/tight/loud and clear, I was thinking sealed bandpass, ok?like: each 10" woofer needs 1.5 cu ft. it can be sealed and be as flat as low as 8" deep... or something that effect, to thank you so much

Post the full T/S parameters of your sub.
I'll see what I can come up with.

i believe that dual makes a 4th order specifically for those subs. they sell them at best buy but a lot cheaper on ebay. not trying to be mean but i wouldn't burn a lot of sweat and money making a real elaborate box for them. just not going to find a lot of love for them around here. mostly internet sub companies popular around here. just our first response to some one using a product that we dont like, we start suggesting bigger and better things. try to keep people from wasting money and do it right from the start. not elitist, just for what you paid for them you could find something online that would blow it out of the water. glass is one of the humblest and smartest people when it comes to anything on here. if he gives you advice... take it.
