Default cheeba's sub box build

Alot of people on here build their own boxes but they take up the whole back of the cab. but me on the other hand i want to be able to fit friends and things in the back still. well ive had the subs for a while now and finally got around to designing the boxes (girls piss me off so work on the ranger ) so heres the beginning of the project.


subs: Kicker CVR12 800peak watts


box mock up




dimensions
front: 13"x13"
side: 13"t x 12"w
top: 13" x 12"

That box will be too small for one of subs. If you look on the Kicker website they recommend a min. of 1 cubic foot and a maximum of 4.6 cubic feet for a sealed box. With the given dimensions, you are only going to get 0.95 cubic feet if your are using .25" MDF. With .5" MDF you are going to get .84 cubic feet. Use .5" MDF and add 2 inches to all of your measurements and you will get 1.36 cubic feet of space in your box, which would be the smallest you would probably want to go for 1 sub.

To install both subs, you would need to double your dimensions.

You can always use Poly-Fill(pillow stuffing) and add it to the inside of the box. it makes the sub act like its in a bigger box
