Default need help on new setup

i have a 99 4 door blazer. I would like to make it USACI Stock Class build but it will be hard. I am very limited on space and have to figure out the best way to install everything. if you guys have any ideas or suggestions please let me know what you think.

I will be running 1 Kicker Warhorse and as many kinetik hc2400s as i can (i have 8). as for subs--I'm undecided between 2-18", 2-15", 4-12", or 4-10" Sundown Nightshade V.2. I will be very limited on box size and room to install everything. I will be getting around a 300 amp mech man alt and as big of xs power batt i can fit under the hood and would like 2 if not 3 of my kinetiks in the back behind the seat. I need to have it all behind rear seat and under window line. I still dont know how i will postition everything but that will come with time and others inputs. What do you guys think i should run for the subs and how about install wise, like how to position everything?

I want this system to be fully musical but destroy the meter as well. I have never done a variable port but have done a little research on it. If i can pull off a variable port i would like to tune to low 30s for daily and 50 for burps as with my 2 blazers and jimmy I always seemed to hit at 50 hz (12 different systems/installs). I think i found the resonat freq of them to be that. I have some hard competition in this area in the class I will be in (160.3 and high 150s for the top 2 guys). I know it will be hard to get but I at least want to at least somewhat keep up with them. I will also be using this in street beat and everyday playing.

Please give suggestions,
Thanks
Tyler

What are the dimensions you have to work with?

well i have no interior in right now is the thing....i am having one of my team guys who has a 00 blazer like mine coming over probly tomorrow and i will be getting the dimensions out of his. also i have been talking with 3 usaci judges to see if i can modify the driver side where the jack and the roll out cargo cover are to get more room. but somewhere around 38" from rear seat to back, 38" between wheel wells, 16-17" high, wheel wells approx--about 5" wide 7" high and have around 8-10" in the rear that is around 47" or so.
I will get more exact dimensions as soon as i can because all i have is my dash, front door panels, and front seats in mine because the dynamat just got all done and had to go compete.

When you measure his, measure as wide as you can, as tall as you can(being below the window line) and then get the full depth. The biggest square box you can fit.

also im leaning a little more towards 15s as i may wall 4 15s off both of my warhorses eventually.

As for box, I want subs and most likely port to fire up. I will be using 3/4" 13 Layer Baltic Birch on the sides and 2 layers on face with subs inset in outer layer. The botton/back will be 1/2" reg birch with resin-fiberglass matt-resin on it. I will have rods supporting the face. In every coner i will be putting kitty hair in them with pvc in all corners. Resin will also be on every part of the inside of the box. The 2 faces will have solid layer of resin inbetween them and where the sides meet i am using resin in there as well. What do you guys think of this idea?

Build. Test. Build. Test. Build. Test. Build. Test.

Then repeat.

The guys you're wanting to go up against have a LOT of time invested in their setups.

i know but the thing is....this is going to be a hard build and for how im building the box....well i will have a solid week and a half or two and alot of money into it. the baltic birch is $70 a sheet and i will need 2 sheets....building multiple boxes will be expensive and the glass......alot of time and money. unless i just mock mdf together to test then replicate...but wont the results very with the different wood and all the resin and corners all rounded fully and all that?

haha funny thing, the guy that did a 160.3 (one note wonder) in testing the other day well this is his first box in this vehicle and has 4 6" aeros. he built it and testing all in 1 day and all he did was cut a little of each port off and threw that number up...i think thats just dumb luck. also he has a different stock class car and his first box in that without modding did 154.8 (daily driver)
