I have a SubThump box - 15 is in the very middle, between the 6x9's, facing the rear. I'm sure it was a difficult and complex box to make, but it's awesome.

In my truck, I've got a wall of 4 taking up the entire extended cab portion. The camaro nothing.

Why not just build a box to the exact specs for that sub, be better than a pre fab box.

What is the reason you wanna put in a 15" sub? I mean to each there own and not trying to be disrespectful but just curious. If powered correctly 2 10" or a single 12" will be just as affective and you would retain alot more of your trunk space for things you mite need to carry. Always remember bigger isn't always better. Just sayin

I would personally.never go above 12 in , the airspace needed for 15in are sometimes a lot more. Plus harder to work in confined trunk imo

I would send Steve @ Subthump a PM or email him. He may have his shop produce a box like mine for you. I believe that this box has around 2.33 cu.ft. of airspace. It worked out close enough for the sealed enclosure requirements of my sub (2.25 cu. ft.). Also, this is the same size box as the SubThump triple 10" box.

Ok - here is the box (please excuse the cell phone pics):


Here it is inside the car.

Pretty much insane. It's tight, not too booming. Sounds pretty accurate. I'm only putting around 800W into it right now (sub at 4 ohm) and it's doing a great job of drowning out the world. My plan is to change it to 1 ohm and push around 1600W into it. Speaker weighs like 46 lbs. I love it.

I had an SUV once with 4-12's in it. It was pretty cool. Then I swapped it out for 2-15's in and I haven't had anything smaller than 15's since then. Until the 15's, I had always said I wouldn't be happy until my ears hurt. The 15's made me very happy.

15's are good for low bass when in a big/proper box where as 10's hit higher bass better, and 12's mid bass better. (just my experience from a long history and love for car audio, but not to say 12's can't hit pretty low bass to. and a 15 in a small box can actually hit high bass notes really well.) biggest factor in audio sound is the box for the sub, and your amp/radio settings. good luck. personally i want 1 15 in a big box for the low low bass.
