POS Hardbody build

Post by POS-hardbody on Sat Mar 31, 2012 8:08 pm

Alright, so heres the deal. Most of you guys on here know that i bought Nicks(Nickgeezee) two SSA Icon 15's about a month ago. Thanks again breh. Theyve sat in my room for a while cause ive been tied up with the toyota and school. Playing the waiting game with the toyota over some materials so i have a little bit of time for the nissan. Had a single L7 in for a while, which most of you also knew. Sold that to buy the SSA's, and have been bassless for a while. It wont be a complete wall, but like a semi wall. Both subs will be one over the other, with a slot port coming in between the two seats. Thats the plan atleast. Savin a little bit of cash here and there to start this build. So i decided to make a thread. This will only be on Vertical Obsessions until i start the box, until then... EXCLUSIVE! So... pichas!
Took out the whole interior, to deaden most of it.






Blah blah blah. I did the roof and shit, yall know what that looks like. Interior is back in and shit. Also hid the mids and highs amp, crossover, and distrubion block where the jump seats go.




I got two builds going on, and school(not trying to make excuses) so ill be a little slow. No job, so im playing the hustle and save game. Which is fine.
Also got a bit of cash, so ill be purchasing a nice little goodie on monday. Until then, SUSPENSE!

Alright alright. Had nothing to do today... SO! I did some research and stuff, and thinking. And im changing my box design from what was previously mentioned. No more, one over the other. Instead, im gonna build pretty much a whole wall all the way to the roof, but its not all going to be subwoofer box. There will be a cubby, for batteries, amps etc. Which will be hidden with a dummy piece of wood carpeted and secured. No slot port, i like the look of aero ports, and from my research alot of people like the quality you get out of them. So new box will be, Depth- 15in, Height- 22in, Width- 44in, and in 3/4in MDF. Which will put me at 6.56cuft. And thats a shade under SSA's optimal cuft specs. Im gonna purchase the 4" Precision Port aero port. Ill run two of them at a depth of 4" each. Which will put my tuning right at 35.64Hz. Very Happy
And heres a little pre planning i did.




Point out any flaws please!!!!

Also is that 6.56 before or after port/woofer disp.
(I didnt calculate it )

15x22x44 = 14520/1728=8.4xxx (internal , before any disp.)

6" round.

In general I see builds with 2-3 6" (6.0+ - 8.0+ cubes) , I wanna say it is suppose to be like 10" -/+ of port per cube. I used to use bass box pro but I no longer have it . I tried to download torres box calc. but cant get it to work.

I recently downloaded WINisd , but haven't messed with it.

(Though I am no expert , just what I have read)

the 6.65 was after woofer disp and port disp. Atleast thats what the tuning calculator said. I went on SSA and got the sub disp and entered that in there with it(it was .19cuft). The calculator also says 25.12 in^2 port area, and 3.83 port area per foot.

i have BBP and torres calc but its on my other comp, is it a hardbody? if its a frontier i know all about them lol and you can go 47 wide no problem. crunched a few numbers real quick and your sitting at 6.9 cubes before displacement. i would go 1 6 inch areo port at 4.63 in length which would put you right at 35 htz tuning

Curious of how I came up with 8.x cube with LxHxW / 1728. Hrmmmm.

Also , I am not sure it is even possible to go down to 4.63" even with it being flare to flare , I think it would still be longer.

Alright, just made some modifications based on what some people said. Quick sketch. Good news is ill be able to fit a 6" aero so bam. I fixed the woofer displacement to .38cuft like it should be.



And here is the calculator that he is been giving me my information...

Its telling me i should be at 36.85Hz with the new specs... Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

dont put so much emphasis on the tuning, i would stay around 35-38 htz and you should be fine. now that i think about it 4 inch is kind of small lol but i still think it should be fine. i would add some bracing to that tho

What about this... i did a design with two 6" aeros, and the precision port website calc said if i wanna be around 36Hz theyll have to be at 12.25" in depth so...


Or you think i should rock one at 12"?
