Ok, heres the deal. I have a customer at my shop with all the gusto in the world for car audio but not a lot of technical info in his background. He decided to go ahead and design and build an enclosure for his vehicle, a 1985 Monte SS. In the trunk he wanted to put 2 Digital Designs 9518s. His box dimensions (inner) are 12h x 41w x 18.75d. The port is an external slot port with dimensions of 41w x 8h x 14d. Now from what I understand, and again, this is according to the customer, in preliminary testing, this box sounds amazing. I'm not 100% certain that it wont do work, but to me it seems like its Big Trouble in Little China. Do any of you think this enclosure has a shot at working without annihilation of his subs? Fyi, they'll be on an m4a with healthy electrical...

The only problem I forsee is the subs not having enough room to breath

Exactly what I tried to tell him. A touch over four cubes for 2 18's is laughable but 4 cubes with 328 sq in of port is ludicrous.

sounds retarded to me...

No, it IS retarded.

Unless he likes 45hz+ music only, he needs only 1 sub in that box and an 18 is not the right size either.
