Dude, spend a little more on your RCA cable. Other then that, I like the system. Best of luck.

an you have built how many boxes? i don't know anyone that makes their front baffle 12.5. usually when i build a baffle for my subs its like 14 the smallest an 14.5 so i am gonna go with 14.5 or 15 tall an 8-9 wide cause thats usually what firing forward cabins like far as port size goes

u sir are a **** weed lmao
14 still to get the sub in the box i would like to see you build that box outside tall 12.5 an see how bad you fail, but if the baffle is 12.5 than more power to you bro like said in someone's post happy reconing an rebox building to you.
then again i may fail an you may be fine but who knows only termlab numbers will tell right.

cool cool. I still have concerns just because I've never seen a box that small with a port that big....one would think it might just act like free air or something, lol

If you say that port is just right for the subs, then you must be right with what you like. But personally I think its to big. Good deal though with all of it.

Not that getting high quality RCA's is a bad Idea, I have seen some insane setups with some of the cheapest RCA's you might find...
