New system (pics)

Here is my new system. Its still not done......I still need to make extensions for the rear speakers to mount to, and then carpet it. Air space per box is about .66, which is what I need. The recommended range is .66-1.00. Im breaking the sub in right now........

i wont lie to ya.....setup looks good, maybe not enough amp for both those subs since the amp is a single channel,

but..........the boxes look like crap.......you need to build them out of 3/4" MDF board and make the joints match a lot better than that so it is sealed good......with big globs of what ever that tan/orange stuff is, it will swell and flex.....and the plywood isn't strong enough to handle what those subs can do....

Well, if I used 3/4" MDF, there wouldn't be enough room. And, the im not sure what joints your talking about that dont match........all of the ends were flat, so when you layed them together, they sealed all the way around. I also put braces inside. I guess i'll find out if it will work when I turn the amp up.

They are 10s.....although I only have one right now. And, I didn't have to move the seat forward much. I sat in the seat, and adjusted it forward as much as I could and still have leg room and be comfortable. Im about 5' 10".

3/4" MDF is the best stuff to use, anything else kills sound alot, or will blow the box appart even with the braces which might be possible with the sub and the small amount of space it has that you have, let us know how it works out-hopefully all for the good

Hope it works out for ya', but.... I'd be a little worried about that 1/2" plywood.

With all the power that amp makes (that is a 750w kicker isn't it?) added to that sub = one blown apart box (if you crank it very loud).
I've seen it done before with a smaller 400w amp & a cheaper 10" sub.

3/4" MDF or particleboard is the way to go (even when space is limited) for maximum performance. Thinner materials (even with internal bracing) can flex and ultimately break apart.

I've used plywood on my previous systems, and never had a problem.....obviously though, this one has around 300 watts more per sub.....we'll see I guess.
