  1. ok thanks so then what would kind of numbers would i be looking at for port area for my xcon 10?
  2. i want to make a ported box for my xcon 10 and i was thinking about modifying the predesigned enclosure to make it fit for my car. I'm just curious why the boxes are the same for the xcon and icon 10's. the recommended specs are different for the 2 woofers but i can't find a difference between the pre designed enclosures. should i be using the recommended specs as a guide or the predesigned enclosures as a guide. just a bit confusing.

    find a good bass heavy song that u know is not clipped and start with ur gains all the way down bass boost off on amp and head unit. slowly turn her up until u hear some clipping the back it off a hair and ur golden. also make sure u wire it properly. im presuming its a dual 2 ohm sub so heres the way to do it: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp?Q=1&I=22#results and enjoy! to the forum

  9. Although this is probably no help at all right now but I had my xcon 15 sealed and I never once skipped a beat...not that I can remember anyways

    never again will i order from here

    haha read the specs before u build a box...
  11. theres my sealed one. net volume 1.16cubes
  12. for the most part yes but tline will most likley sound better tho. loud and clear. Then you should have shared it. Second post regurgitates the specification, not what you have to deal with. Starting with YOUR space is the first step. Should happen way before even shopping for a driver. Doesn't make it a good choice either. See both Lithium's post and mine. Clearly not ready to even choose. When you also state what you think you will gain by doing the monstrosity you propose you will finally realize the futility of it as well.Not sure why you choose to listen to misinformation as gospel, but when people want to actually help you close off. anyways ive decided to try 3 different boxes and see/hear first hand how they are different. optimal sealed, optimal ported and t-line. ill be fine with designing the sealed and the t-line. but i will require/appreciate help with the ported. id like to have a sq box with decent output. a box to enhance the qualities of the sub. the space i have to work with is large but id like to keep it 32" wide by 14-16" high and the space between the back of my seats to the gate/hatch is 25" so it would have to be smaller to give the port some room. id be willing to try slot and or an aeroport. since i have a rf amp subsonic filter is limited to 28hz. personal experiences with this sub and type of box/tuning/anything helpfull is appreciated!
  13. i cant seem to find it atm so i retract my previous statement. he does state that its mostly not worth the cost or effort but it can still be a fruitfull pursuit for those questing to have the very best loudspeaker ever produced. (pg.95) i found the design easier than a ported box myself but im also new to all of this.
  14. i already have all that information as is evedent by my second post in this thread. i do infact have the space for a tline in my car but that doesnt make it a poor choice. i could even go as small as a cube sealed if i wanted to/the need arose. i cant really do that with one or both of my 15's can i?
  15. That'll be a fail. So much terrible misinformation on SMD it is sickening. Yes, huge it will be...and a waste in a car. why would it be a fail? and why a waste in a car? Didn't you read your other thread? More expense, more time, more wasted space, won't help hit the targeted response, first attempt won't work, will look ridiculous, hard to fit....The real question that you should clear up for your self is why you stated, "all specs lead me to believe that it will sound amazing in that type of box." Somewhere on SMD they are confusing people, because that is not the case. Curious why you think so, once we know it'll be pretty easy to show you why its not. not only acording to other peoples actual experiences with t-lines and using the tutorial/guide that i linked/quoted but also according to the loud speaker cookbook. if u like i can find it for you but it mentions that t-lines are forgiving (so u can scratch "first attempt wont work") and have a relatively flat response. yes it will be a huge box but if you wanna try it why not? why not compare first hand what people are saying rather than having these types of arguments when u can go out and try it and actualy KNOW first hand what you prefer/what will be a better box for you? i say go for it. i know im going to
