Fixing to do a build for a toyota tacoma and have a question regarding space. The enclosure im using has a 5 7/8" - 6" depth and the subs have about a depth of 5" to 5 1/8 " will ~1" be enough of space from the back of the subwoofer (which is ported) to the back of the enclosure. The enclosure is not ported.
it's either perfectly fine, or too close for comfort. this is tough to call, because the depth of 5-7/8" needs to specify internal or external dimensions to be of any help.
if the box is exactly 5-7/8" deep measured externally, with a wood thickness of 3/4", than the maximum depth for a sub would be 5-1/8". you'd have to add a baffle ring or sand out a portion of the box for the sub to cool properly.
if the box is exactly 5-7/8" deep measured internally, with a wood thickness of 3/4", than the maximum depth for a sub would be 6-3/8". that's more than plenty.
if you've got none of the above, but you know the sub will have about 1" of clearance, you're fine. i wouldn't even concern myself with clearance until i was under a half inch.
Alright thanks! Im trying to not have to go for a shallow mount because of obvious reasons (quality, etc). Hoping i can make it work.
