haha... good old radio shack optimus subs.

They're alright. My friend had a pair of Optimus 12s and they surprised me for how crappy they were. As far as box specs, I couldn't say. It'd be a shot in the dark.

yea...no specs, so i can't do much for ya:crap:

on the other hand, they are shaq's so you might want to go get a little bit of an upgrade like "lightening audio":wow: or something;)

not necessarily. i'd probably do about .75cf sealed or 1.25 ported. Kinda a generic figure, but it'd work. may not be optimum, but its not like you're going to get much outta it anyways lol.

in general for you, larger = lower response, smaller = tighter....I like it tight, really really tight;)

and for stereo's i like lower response

use internal dimensions, and multiply, then subtract the subwoofer's displacement

woofer displacement is usually given in specs, but there are none for those, so you can get close by doing volume of a cone from the flange to the magnet(volume of speaker that will be inside of box)
