Not to be a jerk or anything...but if you have the car, and you have the sub...why do you need dimensions? Either that or go to the manufacturers website and get the dimensions you need off there.

You will never really find a universal enclosure...every sub is different, and every design does a little something different.

x586759! There is no such thing as a "universal" enclosure. Too many variables go into the construction of a good box.

If you put a Pyramid PhaseIII 15 in a box built to the exact specs for a fully loaded FI BTL 15 it will make noise but it will not perform to the best of it's abilities. There is no such thing as a "universal" enclosure.

I belive that that box is for a 10 inch sub and there is not enough room for a 12 inch sub.

You will need to make alot of angles or do some fiberglass so you can gain some air space.

Pretty much all prefab boxes are just middle of the road....sure things will fit and function in them, but equipment wont work at its full potential unless you put it in an enclosure that is specifically tuned for that sub, and what you are looking for! ;) :biggrin:

if you use a 10 you will get a better sound as compared to the 12's in the small airspace thats available

Your looking at roughly 1- 1.25 cubes per sub for a 12" and your not gonna get it in that small of area.Its either use your whole trunk/hatch or go with a smaller sub.A pair of high end 8"s could easily out perform the p3's 12"s.
