    15 XXX sealed... 2cu ft vs 3 cu ft?

    i'm building a box at the moment, and RE recommends 2cu ft sealed for the 15" XXX.

    What will a 3 cu ft box sound like compared to the 2 cu ft? Power handling?

    Thanks!

    As soon as I get a formidable answer i'm going to build the box

    simply put "deeper sounding"/less powerhandling

    Thank you captain obvious :p

    J/k but seriously, i'm just worried about going too far outside of RE's parameters.

    I think i'm going to just try the RE recommended box and go from there.

    .25 cu ft seems right for the displacement of the 15" XXX, no?

    the bigger the box the more it will make up for power

    2cu ft SOUNDS GOOOD

    Just gotta lower the crossover. 80Hz w/ 6db slope = NO
