    No, you need a better (stronger) box. The Q-logic (from my experience) is particle board (you want mdf), and far from air-tight. I'd say there is a greater than zero chance you will damage your woof.

    You can swing it, if you have a low-power application, but a good sub like the Momo, needs a good box to be happy.

    The q-logic box I am talking about is a vechile specfic and made out of molded palstic on the sides and a 3/4 mdf mounting surface. The box is design to sit behind the right rear quater panel.

    WHOA THERE BUDDY! thats a definite no no

    molded plastic? youre gonna put a 400 - 500 watt sub in a molded plastic box that has walls about as thick as 20 sheets of magine paper? thats definately not a good idea.

    if u do it... the walls of the box will flex and rattle... and you can seriously damage the woofer.

    I blew a DX10 in an mtx thunderform (just like the Q logic Q forms) vehicle specific enclosure... motor structure went right to hell in about 2 months... actually i didn't notice it until 2 months -- it prolly went bad long before that.

    I highly suggest if u want a small customized box.. have someone build one for you out of 3/4 inch mdf or better yet, cabinet grade plywood. otherwise, dont bother... if u're gonna use a Q-form,then dont do over a 200 watt sub and make sure you use polyfill.

    Poweredbydodge, thanks for the input. My real problem is am trying to do a stealth installation. What it is comming down to is me, making a box of 3/4 in mdf with the back wall made of fiberglass reenforced and making a new right rear quarter panel.That way I can hide my amps.

    that'll work... no one ever went wrong w/ glass and wood.

    JL audio may may a Stealth Box (they've got a whole line of them) for your car.

    tehy're jsut like Q logic boxes EXCEPT they are made of fiberglass... which means 1) they perform the way you want them to 2) they're not junky like the plastic ones and 3) they make life easy for us all. :)
