Are there any? Will putting a sub in a bigger box than recommended ( maybe .5 cu bigger per sub) cause any problems? Are there any benefits?

I actually should have stated the subs I was refering to at hand.

RE SE 10"

I have them right now at .63 per sub. RE recommends .65 and I was thinking maybe putting them at 1.0-1.2 cu. ft.....

The only disadvantage is when you go way over the ideal size. Then the speaker begins to behave as though it isn't in an enclosure at all aka infinite baffle. If the speaker isn't made to handle this, then it'll probably bottom out and reach its mechanical limits quite quickly.

Honestly Bandpass Or Ported Is The Only Way To Go !

Is that tapout shirt legit, or are you just wearing it like most MMA fans?

I've been thinking this for a while now

A larger sealed box will play lower than a smaller sealed box but it will also reduce power handling at the same time.

With your SE's I would go much bigger than .75ft^3 each unless you port them.

yes, we put an old school solo baric c series in an overly large sealed box running just 400w to it, and we blew it on the ride home :( haha

The round solobarics had problems with mechanical power handling in the correct size sealed box. The coil could thermally handle way more than the sub could mechanically handle.
