Two 8" subs, 6 mm xmax off 200 rms, 3.25 cubes tuned to 35 with one 6" aero. Will it work, and sound ok for indoor use? If no, what should i change. Subs would be down firing with external side port. Thanks

Box sounds BIG for little subs, little x mox and little power, Which drivers?

You probably dont need anything more than 2 cubes.

I'm thinking about getting a set of little ED test 8" off Skip01, and I have a 6" aero in house. Ed says recomended box size for spl is 1.5 tuned to 35... so if i got it to 3.25 at 34 i wouldnt need to cut the aero, it would be the full 17" long and i could use it later if i want. and the subs RMS are 100 a piece...

This is just an in home project, but according to the specs, do you think i would get results?

Anyone think this would be ok for a little in home system?

Ok I did another one up, its more like 2 cubes tuned low, around 30ish i think. I'm not really sure though. Could someone check it for me? the total port length is 35" and the port is 3" wide. The rest of the dem's are in the pic. Which box do you think would be better? Thanks
