130L sealed and 200L for a bass reflex, convert into cubic feet and there ya go, and it tell you on the site up to 1000 rms

6.5-7ft^3 tuned to 28-32hz, rated power is 1kw.

wow is there anything out there in the 5ft^3 range?
i posed in the woofer section my max airspace would be 42.5x25x22 which is like 13.75^3
I dont have enough for two and the ports?

Mach 5 MJ-18....If you have the power, Sundown Nightshade can work in ~5ft^3 as well.

will one 18" nightshades by as loud as two mjs 18s?
power being 1500 for the nightshades and 2000for the mjs 18s
nightshades are pricey

I wouldn't bet on it. Also, you won't need 2kw for a pair of MJ-18's...1-1.5kw is plenty.
