how much space should there be behind the subwoofers in a box?
im designing a box for 2 12eks and it has a 12 in external Depth. the sub mounting depth is 5.9"
is that enough room for the sub?

i'd give it at least 1/2 - 1 inch of space behind the sub

logically no, theoretically yes. if you make your box way to big then the sub will sound like crap.
