that's just the wire it came with. I'm going to run 10ga (8ga. wont fit in double) as soon as I buy 2 rolls of 10ga. wire I'll be set:)
That's what I am running through-out my install. 'cept the ONE IMPORTANT PIECE! I need more 10 Ga to go from box to subs. I got all the inbox wiring done with 10, and RAN OUT! I needed boom, so I just used some 12 I had sitting aorund... Sad eh? That's what happens when you install at 1030PM Sat Night LMAO

I have 50" wide by 27" deep by 17" tall to work with for a box. I want it to be tuned to 32hz with a port on top in back and the speakers firing in the front into the back of my seats. Help me out here guys.

you would see no gain over that short of a distance. you have to remember that you need a larger gauge of wire because of how much current you are pulling and how far of a distance you need to cover. going from 12 to 10 gauge is not going to do anything over a distance of a foot inside your box. you would be better off eliminating the terminal cup on the box and running speaker wire straight from the sub to the amp.

I found some 10ga. double loom wire that I'm going to buy to use for this install. As for the amp, I'm going to use the Brutus 2005d so I can wire them down to 1ohm and get 1kw RMS per sub. :D can we say "Boom Boom"? lol

I've got all my measurements done for the box. It's going to be 10.59cu. ft. (already subtracted for the port and sub displacements)

I'm getting the 10ga double loom wire from knuconcepts and the 1/0 power/ground from the welding supply.

I'm going to double up the box for strength so hopefully I won't have to add more bracing. Using Gorilla Glue to hold the mdf together. and the port is going to be tuned to 32hz in the front of the box in between the two subs.

What should I use for deadening in the cab? I was thinking about Edead V2
