Okay I have a soundstream t6 15 inch subwoofer and I was looking at two boxes to get. The sub is recommended 2.5 cubic ft. And one box is 3.5 cubic ft and the other is 2.77, I know when you put the sub in the box it reduces the cubic ft. So I was wondering which box would be a better choice?

We need more details, but I'm guessing the bigger the better

Its never good to go with a prefab/generic box. Its always better to go with a box that is designed and built for your specific sub. Not only for the tuning and overall accuracy, but also for the quality of construction. A lot of prefab boxes do not have bracing or accurate port designs or double-baffled faces. I would recommend the labyrinth ported box at 35hz, if you have to chose one. ;)
