Is there a minimum space that a sub mag needs when mounted in a box? The box will b 35w 16h and 10d..was thinkin 9.5 so i can b rite at the rec box size. The sub mounting depth is 8.5 and the box would be 10d but want 9.5d so its rite at rec box size...question is, is 1in enough space between box and mag...and also will the sub b able to perform properly because the box is somewhat slim and wide...?

1 inch is fine any less can cause harm to subs that dont have pole plugs. the ssa xcon for example can be mounted mere mm from the box but the gcon cannot

Ok...now would the sub perform differently with a wide and slim box as apposed to a more square box?

it can but generally you wont notice much difference unless one of the design leaves long sides that can resonate, which can be stopped with sufficient bracing
