Not truck related.. built my little stereo a while ago, been meaning to build a better box for the sub, i know its more of a mid, but i adjust the lpf to use it as a sub
currently have this in about a .5-.6^3ft box.. doesnt sound deep enough

This is the only info i've found for a box size that fits it

does it seem right to have that big of a box for such a cheap little mid?

That sub will not play "deep". The frequency response shows that. That sub is more of a midbass than anything

Yeah, it does make sense if you understand the specs and how it's built. Those are kind like Kicker Comp's, they need a huge box and still won't play very low. If you put it in 0.5, it wouldn't play below your crossover point for shit.

i know its a mid from listenin to it lol, but it'll only be played in my room or the garage.. not looking to get deep, just get it in the correct sized box.. was hoping you guys could tell by the specs if the link i gave was true or not.. dont have time to be building 3 boxes

You just said "it doesn't get deep enough"

It really won't matter with that sub. It won't perform well in anything in my opinion.

yea cause right now the .5^3ft box is restricting it from probably going under 300hz.. shooting for 80-100hz.. ill just build a 1.3ft box
