Help design sub box for VL Commodore ?
Posted 30 January 2010 - 01:14 PM
I am open to all ideas on design but if anyone can help with some dimensions to get the ball rolling it would be greatly appreciated. I am pretty handy on the tools just need the right direction.

I'm assuming you also would like a sealed enclosure for an "all-round" sounding setup?
What dimensions do you have to work within your boot?

What does the manual recommend for enclosures? This is usually a good reference point.

Tiger: I have the duel 1.5 13w7. The VL boot is a little difficult to explain as it has a hump behind the back seat that then drops down. I have attached a pic to help explain.
width between shock towers = 940mm
height from parcel tray to hump in floor 290mm
height from parcel tray to boot floor 440mm
The hump is approx 300mm deep at bottom before it drops off.
Thanks Chaos I have most my gear already. Open to suggestions on compatability and setup
I have new Slash series JL amps 1000/1 + 2x 300/2 + 450/4.
Speakers I am running with at the moment are 3 way MB Quart Q series 164 midbass kit in doors and 5.25" Q series full rane components which I have already made custom kicks to accomodate.
I have ZR800 8 inch midbass drivers aswell but may be a future upgrade.
PXA-H701 + Rux
Headunits (7998R, 7949, 9835, 9887)
The manual recomends 1.875 cu .ft or 53.1 litres. They show dimentions for a square box but i am looking for a custom fit enclosure to fit my car.
This is where I get stuck as I am not sure how I am to get that volume with the shape boot I have to work with.
