  • Remember those 18's ?

    Well seeing as we're not really having a winter here in NYC I've been working on the car. I recently upgraded the electrical system and added two optima yellows to the mix.

    Here are some progress pics of the 18's enclosure. Mainly I've been doing test fittings and LOTS of sanding. I've got about 7 layers of glass + a solid layer of bondo glass on there and I've been following scott and GTI's advise all the way through. Thanks btw!

      Sealed ( small ) 2.0cF
      Sealed ( ideal ) 2.5cF
      Sealed ( large ) 3.0cF

      I've definetly cleared small. I'm hovering between ideal and large at the moment.

      The enclosure looks small but its deep.

          that box doesn't look like 2cuft in that pic because of how much displacement the sub is taking up. if it were me, i'd use some dowels and extend it out some more just to be safe.
          Are you 2x? Because I want to integrate you from 10 to 13!

                      Thats what I actually planned on doing as my back up. After i finish the base up I'm going to take my measurements again. I do have space to extend it outward so thats not a problem at all.

                        that enclosure doesn't look anywhere near 2 cu. ft....maybe it's just the picture?

                        we've got our 15 in 3.5 cu ft ported...yeah - 16 Hz isn't a problem...

                        I just don't see 2 cu. ft. out of that enclosure

                          Could be the picture.
