    Default SR124 DVC box build

    Alright - well the design is now in progress for the new install and i am coming across some potential issues.

    #1 i don think i will like the look of a stealthbox like install for the 12". It is simply too deep for that, at least i think.

    #2 I really hate the idea of losing the spare tire, but i may have to.

    The spare tire well is 27" W x 27" L x 11.5" D

    I used a box designer last night and came up with a box 23" x 23" x 10" That gives me a volume of 1.25

    If i went smaller and stuffed it with some poly, how much space can i cut down so that i still get those sub 30hz notes?

    Box plan would be to build it 100% with MDF, and use the spare tire threads to secure the box from the inside, and drop the sub in.

    My goal would be able to fit my MS-8 and the XR amps inside.

    The XR amps are even smaller than the PDX, they are amazing! so im trying to figure out some box plans where i can fit it all in the well and have a very professional look.

    Im thinking of going with some White LEDs as well.

    Does the MS-8 have problems flattening out the bass response too much? I think I've read that in multiple places online that people had to go in with the EQ and fix it.

    I know that .88 cu ft. that they originally recommended is way too small. 1.25 is the updated recommedned size before displacement so I wouldn't go much under that value. There isn't too much info under 30Hz in most music. Are you planning on listening to electronic music or a bunch of pipe organs?

    I listen to freaking EVERYTHING, and when i say EVERYTHING i mean Song 1: Pinky Ring (wu-tang), Song 2: Andrea Bochelli, Song 3: girlfriend puts on some horrible country, Song 4: Folk music, Song 5: Skrillex.

    About as random as can be, some of the music is DEEP.

    I haven't installed the MS-8 yet or anything else for that matter, just started the build last night.
