Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

If you can find the Vas Fs and Qts of the speaker and give it to me i can help you figure it out, i have the formulas in a book.
Sounds good. Let me know when you have a day off and we can get together.

I meant larger boxes give you deeper bass, it was a typo. Smaller boxes can give you more output but its only to a certain degree, if you go too small, you will go out of the sub'* freaqency range and actually lose output. a Q of .707 is ideal for most people because it is a good tradeoff between output and response curve, but some people who want more bass or have different preferences might go with something higher. i usually go with somehthing around .8 or .9, maybe even 1.0.
