    Default Volume for Kick-Pods?

    The first thing I will be doing in my car, aside for replacing the window :( , will be creating kick-pods for the front. I call them kick-pods, because they are in the kick-panel, but aren't going to be a panel, but more of a pod...?...? I can pop up some concept drawings if I get bored, but My first question is:

    It will be designed for I THINK 6" mids, a high, and a tweeter, but... What are general thoughts on the volume of the box?

    The driver will be facing forward, the enclosure sealed. This means..... I can have a lot or a little volume, depending simply on how far I baloon the enclosure towards the firewall of the car. I could probably get even just short of a cu.ft. this way.

    This is not a time pressing thread, of course, due to pending legal issues with the car vandals.. but I figure'd I'd get started now.

    i believe that, for the mm6's at least, 0.1-0.3 cf is rec'd. i'd assume about the same for any other driver; they're going to have similar suspensions, cause they're all designed for infinite-baffle.

    Wow, I could practically wrap the basket in glass for that kind of volume :p
    That's good news, though, I really don't want to take up so much room, as it would be nice to mount other things there too... maybe the alarm could go there... under a stealth-like cover of course :)
