    Ok, i'll say it.....................you need to design a box that fits nicely in the car. You have plenty of room to work with, make it subs up and port back. Also, i see no bracing in the build pics, you should add bracing or put braces in your next box. You should do four subs on the next box if you are going to run two amps. The cuts and work on this box look good, so you have the skill and tools to do a cleaner build. How does this box sound?

    How the hell are you powering 3 subs with 2 amps? I highly doubt bazooka amps are bridgable.

    You knew what i meant, lol. Im assuming the amps are mono. If theyre 2 channels why not just ad a 4th sub?

    wire it 1 amp to 3 sets of coils, one set on each of 3 subs

    1 amp does positive - negative across the top set, then the other amp across the bottom

    "Ported Box Volume (cubic feet) 1.75 - 2.25 "

    I had one in a 2.22 cube box tuned to 33hz and it was pretty nice.

    Box is wayy to big for only 3 and being sealed.

    Sealed should be like 1.5 cubes each sub. So you could add 3 more and keep it sealed or add another one and port it. In the picture I see 4 boxes.
