    Stealth enclosures

    Hey Guys,

    I was wondering if any one knew if the stealth enclosures you get from sites like subthump.com have terminal cups to hook up the subs to. I have seen one site that does (hifisoundconnection.com). Also if anyone knows if this is a good idea to get the one with the terminal cup. Thanks!!!!!

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    yes they do. About 4 years ago, i swapped out my 2x10's and tossed the subthumb enclosure in there just to see how it would sound/work and it was easy as hell with the terminals supplied.

    I got the stealth box for the rear driver's side of my car, where the stock CD changer would go.

    Installation was extremely easy. It has the terminals built into the back as well, and it fit perfectly in the spot that its designed for.

    Did you bolt it in?

    I bought one of these awhile back with a Kicker 10", and I'm going to install it when I'm done with my brakes.

    Nope, just slides into place, no fasteners required. Stays in place perfectly.

    My only concern with thw stealth enclosures is the air space- .60 cu ft. It's been a while since I built a box, so I have a couple of questions for you guys: Most of the 10's I've built for in the past took at least 1 cu ft in a sealed box- how's the lower frequency range? Where do they typically roll off (bottom out hz)? What subs are you running?

    I'm running a 10" Infiniti in my enclosure.

    Honestly, the bass is great. No matter what music I have on, it always hits the lower frequencies no problem. Its very impressive for a 10", partly because our cars are open between the hatch and passenger area, unlike your average coupe/sedan which has the trunk and passenger compartment completely separated.

    Anyone know if they are still in business? I tried calling the number from the website and it's "No longer in service" I was trying to order the amp rack and boxes from them....sent an email last week as well...no response.

    you could make your own very easily,
    and even faster if you have a staple gun or brad nailer

    Stealth box would be hard to build on your own. Regular boxes take up too much room.

    no it's not I have done it, then again I have been doing audio for 7-10 years
    you just build it out of cardboard then transfer to wood. you can get away with .5" birch instead of mdf as well saves on weight, gives more internal space and is just as strong as .75mdf I would double the front if you use .5 though so it has more room for screws to bite

    As long as you can work with wood, all you need would be measurements...

    If you would like, I can take pictures and measurements of mine before I get it installed.
