READ MY LAST POST ON THIS TOPIC PLEASE.


Hey everyone!

I bought a kicker S15L7
15" square sub 1000rms handling dual 2 ohm.
It will be powered by my Earthquake 700BX amp which throws out 705RMS @ 4ohms bridged.

I need to make a box for this sub and need help!

I have never built a box before but i am good at working with my hands and am good at making stuff.


I really want to make a ported box like on the kicker site, but i heard bad things like it will reduce the life of the sub and so on....

I want maximum SPL.

The box has to fit inside a neon so itll be around 3 cu.ft

If it is too difficult to make a slot ported one i will jsut go with a sealed one.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

the kicker box wont give u max spl. also normally to get max spl u tune high which in turn sounds like crap for daily music.

so u still want max spl?

nope. now i want the best blend of SQ and SPL. preferably leaning towards the SPL side.

Id go sealed, but i kinda want the thing to rattle up my entire car and make everyone around my car to feel it also. and set off car alarms (which my gay muffler does)

I want the box to look like the one on page 15:
http://www.kicker.com/images/manuals...ch%20Brief.pdf

but if you guys think that will be too difficult i could go with a 3 cubic feet sealed one.

i jsut read quite a few.. i like that box design because the port is facing the same way at the sub so it'll be positioned nicely in my trunk.

on page 28 of that pdf theres a similar box with great diensions and everything. but the port is facing the side.

i cant find any exact specs on that box. like the dimensions of each peice and so on.. know where i could find those?
