Hi guys. In your opinion which is better 4th or 6th (chambers in series or parallel) order bandpass ? I have 650 liters total volume and will use 4x12" woofers and power 2k.
Possible examples, describe the difference between the 4th and 6th...etc
Thanks and appreciate.

Depends on the subs. Typically a sub that does well sealed will perform better in a 4th, and a sub that prefers ported orientation will perform better in a 6th.

speakers sound better in bass-reflex than sealed
if I go on the 6th how to make cameras? parallel or in series, to give one to the other? And how to calculate the cameras?
I call somewhere in values ​​25-40Hz.

You will need the subs and the power you are going to use and then model and play with them. No way to tell if a 4th or 6th will work. Depending on your subs and goals, neither of those might be what works best.
