    You don't give much to go on. What are you trying to figure out?

    [AUDIOPHILE RANT] Only thing I know is that due to the inverse relationship of frequency and wavelength, the waves of bass frequencies are about 12 feet tall, and no matter the quality of your subs your car will still sound like boomy shit due to that limitation and all the resonant cavities and surfaces on and in a car. Tight bass is a near impossibility in a car [/AUDIOPHILE RANT]

    Sry, I honestly can't pretend to know anything about car audio or be helpful, since I don't expect much of car audio no matter the situation :tongue:

    It works in your favor if you want boom though. It's called cabin gain.

    I've done installs for Years for myself and others.

    Back in the day, I did DB drag. Getting into SQ now.

    Hit me up with questions.
    Below are just a few of the boxes I've built and run.

    So lets hear it. What's the dillema?

    True, I liken it to being inside a sub cab. Very fun, don't get me wrong.

    It isn't fun after about 140db on the inside.

    Here's another one.
    Pardon the pill bottles...hadn't cut the Lexan standoffs at that point in time.
    Now, its "Floating" on clear lexan standoffs and lit with perimeter red LED's. So, the lexan shows a hint of red, but where the logo was waterjet cut, it glows bright red like it's on fire. Appropriate I thought. (Hey...I had a show the next day, so I had to work quick)

    This year, sub box is gone, and building an amp rack enclosure where this panel is the top, wrapped in ebony black vinyl. Below, you will see just the amps, and the sub will be hidden in the rear well.

    I've got extra stuff to sell if your interested.

    But...you still haven't asked the question.
