    Sealed enclosure

    I am building my 1st sealed box for 2 soundstream spl 160 15's (4.5cubes before displacement)that's going in a cavalier 2dr.I'm not for sure but do I need a divider in between them or what?If so,does that divider act as a brace as well or do i still need to brace it?I've built 2 slot ported enclosures but not a sealed yet...sorry call me stupid.

    Re: Sealed enclosure

    a divider would ensure that if one woofer went out the other wouldn't see all of the enclosure volume.. just the volume that it was indended for.
    i say do it. its easier on a sealed box than a slot ported box.

    Re: Sealed enclosure

    seperating the chambers is a great way to go. 1 reason imo is cancelation issues.

    Re: Sealed enclosure

    i agree with the rest, a divider is the way to go in a sealed box. if you need any other help/advice, cavalier bro, hit me up.
