      My question is: Can you get decent SQ from a 15" sub like that? Or is it mainly for SPL?

      I was always under the impression that the 15's would only be good for SPL. But you proved that wrong. Very cool. I would assume as long as you upgraded the rest of the speakers, which you have, and make sure its all balenced, then thats awesome.

      nope still dont understand the shag...................understand the rest of it though.I am pretty sure it pounds, that is a given, but the shag just throws me off.

      How about this, the 1 thing i dont like is the sub enclosure shag. Everything else is a

      The aeroports i would have passed on though, and made my own slot ports.

      Good thing with the way you did it was being able to change the port length to change the frequency of your tuning.

      i was talking about people being jealous not the shag. personally i absolutely love the shag.

      Aero was the ONLY way to go there isnt enough room to use a slot port, not to mention im not a big fan of them unless they have a kerfed port. Aeros are all around better in my application you can use less port area means smaller box, means more volume, means more low lows. my next build will be 2 12's replacing my 15 and will have 2 6" aeros 1 for daily tuning at 32hz and the second for comps tuned high 40's low 50's

      My front stage still gets it down to 50 hz so I'm weighing it out in my head... 400 lbs would certainly be easier on gas and tires

      Awesome work. I have to admire a person that puts that kind of individual effort into something they like. While like others have said the shag throws me, and you have lost quite a bit of trunk space. I am one that appreciates a good sound system and will be doing my own soon. I also gotta say i liked the videos from the side view. I was like Look at all that body panel flexing.

      Dude has 400 lb+ (like 1.5 fat chicks' worth) of boxes, woofers and batteries in the trunk, and y'all hate on the shag?

      The shag is the BEST PART
