Are they to deep for this box?

Basically just a nice solid 10" of any brand will do. I just like the look of the JL! lol

haha, yeah I believe they are too deep for this enclosure... I also like the simple/plain/clean look... I'll do some looking around for something that would work well.. I'll let you know what I come up with.

EDIT: a quick 2-minute search..

Image Dynamics IDQ 10 D4 V.3 - could work well either ported or sealed in this enclosure
http://www.imagedynamicsusa.com/prod...&Product_Id=16

Ascendant Audio Assassin 10" D4
- either one or two of these could work
http://ascendantaudio.com/assasin.php

Sound Solutions Audio ICON 10 D2/D1 - port one of these suckers in that enclosure and it will pound - shit I may end up going with one these. Very highly praised sub.
http://soundsolutionsaudio.com/index...formation/icon

I'll model these up in WinISD at some point and see what enclosures work well. I'll also keep looking around for subs that will work well.

What's your budget Joel... and how loud do you want to be?

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

I don't really have a budget, I can save accordingly.

I don't really listen to much rap or hip hop, Mostly punk, hardcore, metal. So bass doesn't really need to be extra loud, just there, ya know?

Thanks for all your help Matt, I appreciate it!

Ok, gotcha. Of the three I posted, really all of them will suite your needs. I'll keep hunting for good options for this enclosure and maybe compile a list for other members to use a reference list. I'll likely be in the market for something new in the near future anyways, so at least I have vested interest . Again, I'll model them all up in WinISD and see what enclosure combos give the flattest response.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Okay, I have added the PDF for the flush mount "wings" to the original post (at the bottom above the sig).

Let me know if you guys have any issues.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Hey Matt, how much bigger would the box need to be for a JL12W3? JL12W6? Or even a JL10W6? (sorry, I'm just not sure where the info is coming from or how to "read it" but I know I can build sh!t

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Basic carpentry 101. If you can think it you can build it. But if you cant for some reason partsexpress.com sells sub enclosures at a great price if you can find one that fits what you need for volume.

Here's my box for a JL10W6v2, built to specs I got with the sub. Its tiny, 10W6's do not require alot of volume.

There are 3 factors that will go into accommodating any sub woofer in this situation.
  1. Can the enclosure be modified to fit a 12" driver
  2. Is there enough airspace to support the driver
  3. Is there enough depth to house the driver

As far as modifying the enclosure to house a 12" driver as opposed to a 10" - there is no issue in doing that. It will just need to be built with slightly more height (and it will still fit under the cargo cover).

You will have just a tad over 1 cubic feet of airspace (after subtracting the drivers displacement). So, as long as the sub woofer can work in ~1 cubic feet of space or less, then you will be fine.

Depth will likely be your biggest concern. You'll have 5.5" of depth from the top of the baffle to about 1" away from the rear of the enclosure - most sub woofers have a pole vent in the bottom of the magnet and they typically need about an inch of "breathing" space. You could extend the enclosure outwards (towards the rear lift gate), but will lose the cargo tray/storage ability.


Any reason you are mentioning JL as opposed to other brands? You can do a lot better for the money, A LOT BETTER! If I remember correctly, the W6.v2 require a decent mounting depth.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Mounting depth of a JL10W6 is 6.9", a 12W6 is 7.6". They require a big mounting depth, one of the reasons I dont think a "stealth box" type of encluse would fit/look right in the back of a WK.

All JL specs can be found on there site.

Oh, and I ended up paying $112 for my 10W6v2 brand new, so def worth the price.
