Re: 8's in the doors, mounting depth nightmare!

Andy, make sure you deaden the shit out of those tin cans Jeep calls a door. I had both the outer and inner skin deadened and the clay behind the baffles and I still rattled the hell out of my side moldings... with my measly 6.5 OEM's and 125w I don't want to know what those SLS's are going to do, haha.

Re: 8's in the doors, mounting depth nightmare!

^^ Oh, I though you were talking about the Founteks. Still, I'd probably prefer 8ohm in the SLS's as well. Gobs of power is the most overrated thing in car audio anyways. A clean 100w and those will sing!

EDIT: Both drivers are 8ohm, correct? That's what I'd prefer. And the Mag is single 4ohm right? Man that's a perfect driver combo.

Essentially, how far is the door card from the inner skin of the door frame? If you have your ~1.5" then you are all set. If not, well then you can either get a different mid (oem, sls 6.5's, etc) or hack up the door card and see if you can fab up a decent looking grill "extension."

You'll likely get those in and be like "what sub, i don't need no stinkin sub!" - of course i take all donations of xbl^2 drivers.

Re: 8's in the doors, mounting depth nightmare!

Sorry to thread jack but you two def seem to know what your talking about. I am making a ported sub enclosure for my 10W6v2 following the demensions on JL's spec sheet for the sub, except im widening it slightly to compensate for some braceing im throwing in the corners. Two questions, If I want to make the back slanted can I just subtract say 2" from the top depth and add 2" to the bottom depth and keep the port dimensions (port Lenght and width) the same except slant it (referred as extension length on there drawing) parallel with the back?

And I keep hearing people say they fill the enclosure with a poly fiber or some sort of filler, is this needed or something I would want to do?

Re: 8's in the doors, mounting depth nightmare!

Timmy, I'd just use an aero port. A 4" flared aero would be perfect. Slot ports are ugly.

Polyester Fiberfill (or poly fill as it' sometimes referred to) is used to create an atmosphere that "tricks" (for lack of a better word) the sub woofer into thinking the enclosure is larger than it really is. So, if space is an issue, then you can build a slightly smaller enclosure than recommended and toss some poly fill in it to compensate.

Re: 8's in the doors, mounting depth nightmare!

God dam it matt, stop acting like I know your terms. Now whats an Aero port?? haha And space is no issue, the enclosure for this sub is small. I was actually trying to get demensions to make the H.O. enclosure. It wont be exact, but I think I have an idea when looking at the cross section JL has on there site of it, using my scaleing ruler to find lengths and widths of everything. Im just not sure if they have extra bracing in there that they dont show in the diagram of it. I tried to google if anyone has made one but no success so far.
