Default Walled Ford Explorer with 8 Massive 15s, 59s already :)

Ive built and tested over 50 boxes on this explorer since i bought it on 2010, ive had a lot of fun doing it, broke tons of records around here and also gave me the knowledge to design a lot of boxes for competitors and even world champions that also own the same awesome truck that i have, but, spending that amount of money, time and effort isnt practical for me now, so, its time for me to build something loud ,low and fun in there without caring At ALL about numbers

Car: 1998 4 doors 2 gen Ford Explorer, shes called the Sexplorer btw lol

Electrical: Mechman 270A alternator, XS Power D3100 on front, 4 northstar nsb 110ft on the back for the moment, 2 soundquest 0 GA cca runs for the moment, the plan is, to add 4-8 runs , a second alternator wich i already have at pipo sanchez home and 14v batteries in a few months.

Amplifier (subs): Loudforce 10K wired at 1 ohm for the moment, 2 10ks at .5 ohms in a few months

Amplifier (mids) : Soundigital 8K at 1 ohm

Amplifier (highs) : 2 loudforce lfa-1504s

Mids/highs: not sure yet, but tons of them

Subwoofers: 8 loudforce 8515s 750 watts 3" VC a piece for the moment, 8 9015s 3200 watts in a few months

Box: 4th order bandpass wall , 13 cubic feet sealed / 24 cubic feet ported, port area and tuning will be tested until i found what it works the best, mad props to Dave Leib (strongmandesigns on this forum) , coty eager, dylan kirby, scott bowman, zaim nayor, keith miller and jared gibson for all the inputs, without them, i wouldnt picked up my mind on what sizes i needed to use, i spent more than a week designing this box, wasnt easy at all, specially since i didnt want to build a shell, wanted a box that i could slide in thru the hatch.


THE GOAL!!

Easy, want to be able to play a huge bandwith, and of course, play LOW as hell without loosing output on higher frequencies, since 4th order bandpasses tend to have 2 peaks, im trying to get a 23-27 hz peak and a 40-45 hz peak been the higher peak the strongest one, well see!

I have a 3rd gen, we are looking a 4 18's 4th order eventually with Sundown, I'm interested to see how that goes. I like the same frequency response, like 20-55,60 hz.

Anyways, tearing everything apart, last box i had in there was 4 loudforce 8515s on a loudforce 3K wired at .5 ohms on 3 batts, burped a 151 at 34 hz and played very nice.



Believe it or not, it was about 2 years since the last time i folded the seats up

More of the tearing apart process lol







Max dimensions i could go with a box slided is 33.5" height x 42.75" wide x 67" long and still leave some room for amps and a few small batteries like a pair of my northstar batts or a few xs power D1400s wich im planning to use in a few months when i have the money for that upgrade

I cleaned everything on the back and got some cheap deadning for under the box, just to prevent some flex on the floor if its possible....





Anddd, time to pick up some wood, 8 sheets on this picture, 4 more to go



Also, some 1/4" angle steel for bracing, got 40 feet of it



Time to do some support for the box, looks like shit but you wont see it under the box so its cool , built it with 2x4s and 3/4" mdf
