    ok, so i finally got the amp i want to push my mtx 4512 44 but it doesn`t fit cleanly on the box i built, so i`m going to build a new one.btw amp is an MXA4001 which i will bridge to run parallell on this dvc sub.

    unfortunately, i can`t get on mtx site tonight, but i know i need 1.25 for a sealed or 2 cubic feet for a ported box.i prefer sq so i think i`m gonna go sealed again.
    i want to put on the hatch floor of my tiburon, so i don`t want it very high, so i was gonna make it only 4 " high with the sub on rh side facing rear to center of car`s width @ a 45 degree angle upwards with 50% of the sub above thetop wall of the box & the other 50% in the box which i will slot out by fiberglass. Basically make a shallow box which will act as a false floor.

    my question is how much air space room behind the sub do i need for it to stay clean sounding or does the fact that it is on a 45 allow air to flow freely throughut the rest of the enclosure

    well i would model out the sealed enclosure on WiniSD and see what you like.

    THe shape of the enclosure isn't really that important as long as the volume is correct

    cool, what is WiniSD & it doesn`t matter if the magnet is almost touching the floor of the box?....(yeah , i`m the dumb newb, sorry)

    we all started somewhere. dont worry. you will learn. and if it fits its good. if there is airflow in the box and its the right volume you should be good.
