    1.25 cubes times 8 woofers = 10 cubes. given your specs you have 15 cubes to work with, shrink the box to get the dimensions you need, im assuming you are going to be running them sealed. but im also going to offer you this advice...

    if youre asking for help with such a huge project, perhaps the project is more than you are capable of taking on... i know youve been around long enough to figure out that concept, which is why im suprised to see you asking questions like these... i also think you would get better results with fewer woofers and a different install. and i would personally find it more impressive to see a proper install rather than someone trying to fit too much into too little...

    well as for this, this is not my doing i run single sub setups , im just baffled with the situation, he ordered the 8 12"s from me so im not going to say no ya know what i mean?, so we now have the woofers, and im trying to work with the woofers and see what we can come up with , its for a show car not for a competition, trust me if it was for spl i wouldnt have done the 8 12"s i would have done 1 15" in there anyways yeah it is a huge project i was just looking for some ideas that you guys may have thank you for your insight hoss and hope to get more responses.

    Re: need box designed for 8 12"s

    I don't have a way of putting my visual concept into this forum, but I was figuring that since the show is this weekend and you need something quick. Why not just do a large box with a bunch of smaller boxes inside to make up the 8 chambers. The sheer thought of 8 subs in the back of a cherokee should be pretty impressive. If you have extra time, finish the outside of the box in something besides carpet, do metal, mirror, etc. and give it flair that way.
