    I think you'd have to upgrade your suspension to install that.

    not to mention that regular 1/4-inch MDF wouldnt cut it.

    perhaps a custom aluminum box construction

    aluminum would flex too much and acoustically it would be a poor choice. reinforced 3/4 mdf would work if it was properly built.

    :rofl: At thinking 3/4" would flex less than 3/4" t06 aluminum. How about an aluminum or steel box that is lined with a high quality hardwood?

    I would be more worried about blowing the seals on a box that the box flexing. And talk about the need for dynomat. I wonder how much SPL you could push out with a sub like that. It would be wild.

    The Krell Master Reference subwoofer is constructed of 1-inch thick aluminum housing with twin powered 15 inch subwoofers. The setup cost around 25 Grand +, I dont think aluminum is a bad choice.

    its a good match for a pair of the JBL/Crown 6k amps, but MTX is supposed to be coming out with some monster to power that thing
