Will this work?

I have the inseat box made to SirGCal's specs...but I've yet to cut the hole(s) for the sub(s)...the reason I say this is because I'm not sure whether I'm going with one 10 or two 9's...I know the box is made for two 8's...but check this link...based upon these specs...will these speakers be ok in the SirGCal box?

Thanks!

Sam

the specs seem to be a match for that box. i have heard alot of great things about the ED subs. the ? i have is, do have a place to buy them cheaper than $95 a piece? thats what is listed on the ED's website. for me thats alot of $ for subs for a wrangler. IMO, its a "wrangler" the sound quality kinda goes out the window (and the back, top and sides). if it were me i'd look around and find some other quality subs for alot less.

but then again, if you can find them alot cheaper than $95, forget what i said adn get them. if you do find them cheaper, let me know, i am getting ready to do the same setup too.

Yes, I agree...$95 per sub is awful expensive. I'm going to see if I can get them cheaper...either ebay or I wonder if anyone locally has them

I wish I could get on ebay at work.

I know this question is asked waaaaaaay too much, but what's everyone's opinion on using two 8's vs. one 10 in this box?

i think it depends on what kind of music you listen to. 2-8's will sound more tight or punchy and clean. 1-10 will have lower boom. depending on which sub and amp you use. i will be do the same box in mine soon and i'll be using 1-10 w/ 150 watts. i like all kinds of music and i got out really cheap (w/ the 10" sub and amp)

That's pretty much exactly my set up. I would be using one 10 with 150 watt amp.

I think that's what I'm going to do...get a JL 10 hook it all up. If I don't like how it sounds then I'll use the 10 in my Cherokee and get to 8's or two 9's and recut another piece of MDF for the box in the TJ.

I do prefer a tighter sound though because I listen to alot of metal and rock...but I think I'll stick with the 10 for starters

Actually whats going to change the sound is weather he uses a sealed or open box.
In SirG's drawing, he doesn't have each sub in its own sealed box so it won't sound as if each sub was fully enclosed.

If you're changing how many subs were used and how big they are, you'll have to re-work the dimensions of the sub box because of the change in air volume. Each sub requires different ammounts of air.

You'll be fine with the one 10". That's what I had in my old Thunderbird (one of my old Thunderbirds anyways) and it worked fine for that type of music. If it seems too "boomy" then stuff some poly in there, or you could even put a divider in there to make the internal space a little smaller, don't go out of spec just a little smaller then what you have.

Cool...thanks for the tip.

I started taking the seat apart...next step...cut the bars off and get my sub...then it's time to mount the box to the frame and put it all back...I'll keep you guys posted.

Now for my next question. As far as cutting the bars out of the frame...I have a really nice powerful Crafstman electric drill...will this work to cut those off if I buy a cutting wheel for it? I just don't have anything else at the house to use...

Thanks

I ended up bringing it to work and used one of the cutting wheels there...worked great...smoothed the areas out a bit and put some flat black paint down on the exposed metal...now to cut the sub hole...
