    TIGHT squeeze

    so I bought the subthump stealth enclosure. I bought a Pioneer TS-W2502D4 10 inch subwoofer with a recommended enclosure volume of .35 to .7 cu ft.... the subthump box is .6..... perfect right????

    WRONG.... the pioneer sub is MASSIVE and the power terminals BARELY miss one of the internal structure points of the enclosure. The sub won't slip all the way into the box.

    I am not sure if its because the sub is contacting the narrower inner structure of the enclosure or if the opening is ever so slightly too small.

    In either case I'm a bit worried as I don't want to use a different sub or box.

    My personal opinion is that the opening is slightly too small for this particular sub. but that leaves the problem i'm likely to encounter next.... if the opening is the culprit and i get the woofer in the box.... how am i going to get the wires in the VERY narrow area they will have to fit through.... sigh....

    the sub can handle 3000 watts though

    i'll only have 2400 to give it. for a good thump when all is said and done.

    Build a spacer for the sub, like a wooden washer. If the sub is hitting any of the internal parts of the box.

    hmmmm not sure if I have enough room to do that with the rear wall rack I have. I'll need to measure.... but then I would still have the problem of the wires not fitting in the tiny gap....

    LOL.... this is what I get for putting a competition sub in a stealth box

    It's got a carbon fiber cone and something they call air suspension.... basically it has a second cone inverted on the inside and attached to the outer cone. The space in between the two is sealed. They claim this is in place of a traditional spider structure and that it allows finer control of the cone movement while enhancing rigidity.... as if carbon fiber wasn't rigid enough lol.

    I really gotta figure this out. I'll probably try to tackle it tonight seeing as i found the amp and should have everything in time for the weekend. This is going to be an epic weekend. I also got my Monster clutch and tick MC in the mail.... I basically need to dissasemble the whole car on friday night!!

    pffff that was easy.... I guess my father was bored and took a shot at it. I got home last night to a sub sitting pretty in it's box. Now to get some wires overnighted to my door and pretty much take the car apart on friday.... if it isn't raining

    I'd love to get the stereo AND clutch done by Saturday night.
