say i make this shape box, (although my drawing is very rough) will it effect my subwoofers sound? I have to do this cause my **** wheel well sticks up and otherwise i cant get the right cu ft for each sub. picture below....

SO long as the box is not like 20 feet long, it shouldn't matter...it's what I've heard. But people do say in theory a perfect cube is NOT good.. so if you've got an enclosure that has a somewhat odd- agle, all the better, according to theory~:D

As long as the internal cubic feet is that of which is liked by the sub, you should be fine. That perfect cube thing, yeah, the box would need to be huge for it to have any negative effect im pretty sure.

you should be alright as longas there are no really shrp angles so there could be dead air in thT SPOT

Ok, checked out your drawing... I don't see anything that would cause a problem... so long as the internal volume is ideal for the subs, the shape doesn't matter..
