Ok... 3 ten inch subs in a box that will fit under the parcel shelf in the trunk. I would like the box, and any false front you would have to make to take up that entire space with room for the hinges to go in and out. A price...? ya know what....if u wanna build it, shoot my your price. If its not too crazy u gotta deal. I'm gonna have the thing covered in black leather so it doesn't need to be carpeted. If u wanna gimme an est. on the leather that's ok too. I'm planning on doing Rockfort subs.

You will need to raise the 6x9's in the rear shelf to fit an enclosure in there. I'm still planning out my 4th order vented through the rear deck. I have a world champion DB Drag Racing winner (Greg Perchal) assiting me with it. Big Grin

Not if the box is engineered to fit

I would be looking at building the box so that it fits almost tight against the rear seat. As far as a "false front" do you mean something that runs from left to right, that would hide the subs? I don't think I would be willing to make something like that without installing it myself. Thoes things car really hurt sound quality, they can rattle, and many other things.

As far as prices go, its looking like a sealed box for 2 12s is going to run 120 to 135$ for a unfinished box. It will fit the trunk better then any off the shelf box will. Standard materials will likely be 3/4 mdf with some mild internal bracing. If you have something like some JL W7s, then you will pay more. Reason being I will have to step up the strength by a whole hell of a lot.

At this point I want to stick to only a few combos. What I am really thinking of doing is making a 2 12" sub box in ported and sealed. If I do other weird combos, its going to take a lot of time to re-engineer the design. I can certainly do anything, but the labor time is what kills me. I think my plan will be build 1 sealed and 1 ported box, and post pics. See what people think, and build them on a as ordered basis. Only then will I really know what my cost will be for sure.

We have a strict policy with our company against sealed boxes. You will get WAY more output and efficiency out of a vented box, use these for maximum spl

As far as calculating how long the port needs to be use this calculator

I do not recommend porting a box through the rear deck unless you are making a 4th order bandpass. If you MUST port through the rear deck do not face the subs backwards, doing this will essentially turn the entire trunk into a sealed portion of a bandpass and you will fight cancellation. Instead, face the subs forward and make sure the front of the subs are COMPLETELY isolated from the trunk and your ports are secure and sealed into the rear deck. I've learned quite a bit from my boss, Team Toxik knows how to build enclosure for SPL. hehe

You can get massive output from a sealed box. It just takes a lot of power and the right subs. Not to mention some subs have to run in sealed boxes due to their design. All things being equal I rather have a ported box.
