You've got a lot of work ahead of you but you're off to an awesome start! Should be a lot of fun once its finished ;) and sound pretty good. Havent seen Nakamichi gear ins a long long time.

Any exterior pix? I wanna see this wagon with a Statesman front end :P

In progress bar isnt on the car as of yet as its sitting in garage ready to go, will chuck it on this week ready for paint :D one question would a 350x400 150 deep port work for 6 15" woofers tuning 31hz ? Bit small for my liking but all i can do for such a low tune frequency,

Thanks for taking the time to write this up Blake.....looks awesome so far!

Im not sure about the port, dont look at me for port advice :laugh:

How thick is the wood? The L & W on that diagram are outside dimensions, and the H is inside.. I've assumed you'll use 25mm, which gives 27 cubic foot of space. Thats about 4.5 cubes per woofer, pretty much in the sweet spot for a 15" in my opinion for music.

As for the port.. make it the full 410mm high and make it a slot port, where the roof and floor form part of the port. Then you can use a shorter port to get the same tuning, and it braces the box more. Win Win !
Height = 410mm
Width = 410mm
Depth = 150mm should tune to 31hz

Your vent mach will be under 10% easily, so you wont get the choofing too small a port gives.

I will second the nakamichi gear bit, and add I miss when car audio was as big a deal here as it is there :(
5 years 6 months ago #11 by Tezzating
Fully integrated systems and stock systems which dont suck really took a toll on car audio in general.. I also think in the mid-2000's it went a bit nuts.

Anyway, more pix ? :P

Ahhh.....SX Pros, you cheeky boy :P

Looks alot like a coffin to me :laugh:
5 years 6 months ago #14 by Tezzating
A real coffin would probably work nice as a sub box, all that dense hard wood and the construction on thems pretty solid too..

Just a thought :P
