Nah, what did I have there EZ? was it 46"?
I think that this could be made to work in the space you have, but to keep the horn expansion rate and a reasonable length, I would actually need to model it like a real horn instead of a 4th order BP.
I might be able to pull that off now that I am home for a couple days.
I will send you a couple more ideas as I get some time to sit down and play with a calculator and a ruler. Things are finally starting to normalize a bit here, but you never know how long that will last with me.
Let me know how that ported box sounds!
BTW you never said if you saw Meade's new Civic install?

[quote author=mrezstreet  link=1160835651/30#44 date=1162937560]well the cc was made per bp specs 3.5 cub and i cannt understand how i can put my 19ov.2's in a 36 " box thay are 18.3" wide and like 8" deep??? made im just om crack Roll Eyes [/quote]

That's why a WO for 18's won't work right.  A WO for 15's is pushing it a little too far, but can be done.  With the 19.O's the horn will get too long and lower the tuning to the point where you will lose output.  IMHO, the best bang for your buck with a WO is to build it with 10's.  12's will work good too, but from what I've done and seen not 50% better than 10's like the cone area would seem to dictate.  If you want something radical that will probably work, try building a Imperial with the 18's.  Otherwise and simple ported box will get crazy.

Ya know,
If I sit down and try to figure out more horn theory for 18" drivers, why is it that I don't think I am going to do any better than that?
Quite possible the way to go in the van. You have the room and this thing is going to be right on for what a horn is going to turn into no matter what the configuration looks like.
Hey EZ, want to give it a try?

The Imperials are truely amazing.  The only problem might be in the size of your van.  Imperials like a lot of room and you might be limited with a van.  I'd still give it a try if I had a van.

I think in a van, I would go for the SO version?
What do you guys think?
Possibly two of them with 1 sub in each?
Would have to figure out how they would fit and fire though, it could be a beast and a half to squeeze them in and see what happens. I saw a "triple Band Pass" install today that was rather interesting. Doing some high 160s on a TL meter!
Hmmmmm what next?

lol

LOL!
Thats why I don't have a mirror in my house 60
After I look at it I never get anything done.

They are a strange animal those Imperials. And I am sorry to say I still think Imperials in a van is silly.
An SO in a van is even more silly although it would look nicer.

However either would make a cool picture for a desktop

So where the 18" badboys now?
