OK here is the situation
Stetsom 2k5 2ohm
One Kicker Solo X 12" dual 1
max box size 16t X 18d X 32w
The car peaks at 42hz and is a trunk
I know the solo x like bigger boxes, but in a 3 cu box it will only like to see 1500w or so and the imp rise is pretty stiff. I was looking at going down to a ~2cuft box with 2-4" areoports going through the deck into the car and firing the sub to the rear of the trunk. I am looking for some confimation that I am going in the right direction with this as the way I see it, the imp rise is less with the smaller box, the power handling is better with the smaller, and 2-4inch ports are pretty close to acceptable. I am looking to play to the mid-high 30's and have the imp rise close to that also droping to 2 ohms by the low 40's and the second rise 70 or above. I know I am not asking for much.
I have modeled a few boxes but they typically show some pretty ugly rise or tuning is higher, or the rms is 1500 or so
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated
