2 15" Icon box ideas in a Dakota

Recommended Posts

Hi, So I just placed a big order for my dream system off of SSA, consisting of 2 15" SSA Icons, a Crescendo BC2000D, XS2700 and stickers, runlaugh.gif

The subs will be going in a Dodge Dakota Quad Cab, I will be removing two seats in the rear and have dimensions of 22" H, 30" W by 34" deep.

Ill be getting DC to design me a box, just wondering what tuning I should ask for and where to put port if subs are on the top plane? I want something fairly balanced SQ to SPL but more to SQ side definitely. Love hitting the Lows hard and want to push lots of air. (if possible) Mostly looking for tuning recommendations for those subs in a cabin like the Dakotas, and also port placement,

Thanks,

Thats what ive been hearing about the subs! Took me over a year to finally decide on what I wanted to get.

That's good to hear I was hoping he'd actually work with me there. I just got an automated message but I guess thats just to weed out the lookers from the people actually willing to pay. I cant wait, I got some waiting to do for the subs to be built but I'd like to have the box ready for when they come.

This'll be the biggest system I've done so far so i want to get it sounding the best I can. Just need wires and I'm good. Trying to decide what to use, its between 2/0 welding wire and Knu OFC 0 gauge but it really adds up. Its almost triple of just Knu CCA.

Yea, the automated message is simply because of the amount of requests we get, it just makes it easier then anything doing it that way. I normally email right back, but it is Amber's(my wife) birthday this weekend so I am a bit...um occupied lol.

I would do subs forward port up. Also you should be able to go much wider than 30in if you removed the rear seats.

Thanks for the reply, no problem I totally understand, im in no hurry, still got to wait for subs to be built. Whenever you get a chance i'd love to work have your opinion and ideas on the box, wasn't to sure if I just filled out the form and got designs sent or if you work personally with your customers, im very pleasantly surprised, biggrin.png Looking forward to working with you and have a great weekend, hope your wife has a great birthday.

Thanks

Thanks, for the reply, I just read your whole build log earlier today, amazing work, super clean! Ya maybe that would be a better idea than subs up. my build is going to be kind of a smaller version. I'd really like to keep that one seat in the back as my trucks a stick so driving with someone in the middle "usually" sucks. ill be removing the two seats fully though. The reason for subs up is that is the only way I can get the two 15" subs in the 30 Inches is to stagger them. Might have to build a custom small seat and gain a couple inches?

Just an update. Got my 2 SSA icon 15" subs today. :) also have received my xs power d2700 and my stickers. Crescendo bc2000d is coming on Tuesday. Wow those subs are sexy. Ryan at ramdesigns is designing the box. Will start a build log as soon as I get the designs.

      Hey guys manzkea back at it again! Lol. Finally got some equipment in. Excited to finally get this project I’ve had in mind for a while rolling . Gonna attempt a blow through in my single cab 2001 ford ranger long bed. Gonna make pods for the doors to house the 6.5s and replace the stock one with a 6.5 or if possible an 8” driver. All powered off the ssa ic150.4.  As for subs I’ll be using a 15” sp4 v2 I got from a friend for a deal. A taramps 5k will be used to push it.
      Unfortunately the evil mids I wanted was unavailable in 4ohms. So I went with these prvs.
       
      Well I’ll I’ll be updating this as I get it going. Possibly next week or so, really busy with work at the moment. Well here’s a pic of some goodies the mail man dropped off.  Cheee. 
       
       Btw got something extra special in those two ssa looking boxes behind the ranger gear. But that’s on the back burner at the moment.

      Hi guys I was wondering whether standard polyurethane or a UV activated resin would be better for applying directly to MDF wood in order to protect it from the elements of rain ice and snow basically is one product more durable or reliable than another with respect to weather-proofing wood thanks

      Hello everyone I would like to start by saying I have no intention of breaking or bending any site or community rules here so pls forgive me if I do that is not my intention. 
       
      I am here to share my personal experience with cherrymancustoms who has built me an extremely personalized and truly custom enclosure to meet the needs of my particular listening goals.
       
      This man has spent literally countless hours over-the-phone speaking with me one on one in an attempt to maximize my enclosure design and has built what I consider to be a very good quality box. I have attached images for your own viewing and judgement below.
       
      His website is www.cherrymancustoms.com/ where he has a phone number listed for you to contact him if you so choose to do. He also has a YouTube account and forum thread over at caraudio.com
       
      I plan on again encouraging him to create an account here so he can communicate with you guys easily and share all of his work here locally with the community.
       
      FYI this box was built with an adjustable internal volume and adjustable tuning plus it is "double walled" everywhere from top to bottom and side to side. It features some serious bracing too.
       
      For any of you looking for someone to build and create exactly what you have in mind or rather those of you who need somebody to help you determine what would be best for your needs I strongly encourage you to give this man a chance he is super friendly, knowledgeable and hard-working as you can see.
       
      Best of wishes to everyone here hope some of you may find this information to be of good use.
