i have 2 8" pioneers and i am thinking of putting them behind my seats. i need to know what the max/min recomendation is so that i can start to plan it out. so does anyone know what the rec. min/max is for 8" subs??

im thinking about .7 cubic feet or so

you have to know the specs of your sub. post the model numbers and what not and maybe the installers here can help you

it'll depend on the sub itself

grab winisd PRO and see if it has the specs, and design your box there.

aiight ill post the model numbers after i get it out of the box. it is not as simple as you guys think. its like submerged into the box, sorta looks liek a home stereo speaker. i have to cut the wood to get to it.

if its just for the sub itself, i`ll bet you wont need anymore than a cubic foot. sounds little i know...

yea most subs use less then 1 cubic foot. my infinity uses exactly one. are u using home theatre subs for your car?.. just a question

you'd be fine with .5 or .6 if your going to have them in a sealed box. or go with about .9 approx for ported.
...don't expect that those things are going to pound or anything, specialy in a del sol, with the firewall between the trunk, and and the rest of the car.

surfertech - no i am not using home theatre subs. the box that it was in looks like a home theatre system but it is not.

12v - yeah i think im going to be making a sealed box. i am putting the subs behind my seat because of the firewall.

azn_sol - what kind of amp are you using? i figure that 2 12" wold be pretty loud.

pound decent, those things with the proper amp could make you deaf pretty easily, those are nice subs
