Hello everyone. Im pretty new around here. So to put things in a nutshell im an amatuer audiophile ive been reading about everything for a while but have yet to actually attempt much seeing as a lack of budget. The time has come to start the great process of trial and error. So down to the details...
I have 2 ancient quantum audio gc15.2(if you can find the specs id love to see them) in a sealed probox Im using as test dummys. picked these up off a friend years ago. I want to try a ported enclosure on one of these to see if i like it. Problem is i have no place to begin. Realistically i dont expect these to perform like a dd or ia, ect. But i would like to get them low. I will be running a pioneer gm-8601 as the test dummy. Cea-800 watts. The speakers are designed for 1kw rms/2k burped (think its got a 2.5/3" coil). Since these are dvc 2ohm i was thinking run parellel (i think i murdered that word :s) on the coils for the 1ohm initial resistance. Was thinking of hooking one amp to each coil to see if it would hold up... now thats out the way on to the real questions.
I was thinking a 1.5X1.5x1.5 as a simple test run to come out about 3.3^. My big thing is i dont know how to port. Ive read about it but none of it really sinks in from a text book perspective. Im aiming for a 30-35hz tune seeing as im in a 96 jeep cherokee i imagine that ill have quite a bit in rise and cabin gain alike.
1.do you think if i were to run 3(ish)cubes on a 800.1 tuned in around 30hz on a 1kw rms speaker i would realistically have enough power to effectively move the air i need?
2. If i were to run this set up aimed directly at the back hatch and (assuming i get the port right) in a 100% effecient (for arguments sake) 30hz port would it still sound decent in the high 40/mid50hz range?
3.anyone wanna offer me real world advice on porting/builds in general? (Aero vs slant vs wtfever else im missing) maybe share a funny story to keep me from ragequitting after a few failed attempts? Even just a "good luck post pictures grats noob"?
Any and all feedback welcome.
