I already know the answer, a hell of a lot, my question is to what degree.

When dealing with the SPL scene, a box swapped into another car is hardly guranteed to do the same numbers, far from it.

Here is my scenario. Had a 2001 mercury cougar, system slammed. Got a 1998 Explorer, the system is just as loud I think, but it doesn't hit as hard. Does anyone understand what I am saying? Could it be that the explorer would like a new box? I am just looking for some reinforcement here, any idea/thoughts/questions welcome

Uh, I can think of a few things off the top of my head. More volume in the SUV, different dampeing characteristics of the interior, and definately different vehicle resonant fequency. So you're not crazy.

So it is possible for me to try a new enclosure, more port area, lower tuning, w/e combo it would take -- and acheive the authoritative smack in the back of the head, and loudness?


Like I said it is just as loud I am pretty sure, but it doesnt feel like someone is squeezing your head and body any more.

Less pressurized would be a good way to put it I guess.

The explorer should be able to put down a better number in a street setup than that cougar. Try a CRX box if you have 2 12s. Should be able to get it into the 150s fairly easily.

:-p you silly buggers. I know how to get loud on the meter. I want to get ear loud.

I ran some tones and my box is tuned higher than planned. Around 37hz.

Time to build a new box, tune it down to 33hz. Should net me some more "hit in the head" bass instead of the buzz affect this box is giving.

Also going to go with a little more volume, and a ton more port area.

Current box is 5.75 NET @ 37hz w/ 70in^2 port area

Wanting to do 6 NET @ 33hz w/ 100in^2 port area.

See If I can't make this explorer hurt somebody.

Again, this is a daily driven - non competition vehicle. I just noticed a huge difference in the sound of the system when I switched vehicles is all.

i gained 4 db from a rear firing box in a xplorer to a crx style 6 cube subs up ports back did a 51 with 2 95 15s and 2 2000x s , i say the box is the most LEAST efficient part of the whole system, so build, test,build test, my wall only gained a little with the same power
