    What do you think of these dimensions?

    Here are my dimensions that I plan to work with...

    48"- W
    18"- H
    26"- D

    I got 13 cubic ft

    and 10.8cubic ft (taking 1.5" off each dimension to get actually how much the subs will have)

    Thats about 5.4 cubic ft without port displacement. Im going to be using two 6" aeroports for each chamber...What do you guys think? Good or too big?

    L7s and if that's for a pair of 15" L7s, then that seems good to me. kicker recommends like 5 cubes i think anyways.

    Re: What do you think of these dimensions?

    Looks good....why not 1 18"SoloX,they use 10cuft for a killer setup and will out do the 2 15s L7s.

    And with 4 6" areoports would sound great IMO.
    If I had that much airspace thats what I would do.

    5.44ft^3 each not including driver/port/bracing displacment.

    You're only going to get about 4.5ft^3 after driver and port displacment. They will perform decently enough in a box that size. But adding any bracing(you will need it) will decrease box volume, raise tunning. To compensate you would need to extend the ports. In turn lowering the volume again.

    What do you plan on tunning to? I can tell you the final volume.

    My plan was to do it around 5.4cubic ft or so (about 5.0cubic ft) that way I could tune it around 36hz,37hz and use all 17" of the aeroports. I plan to tune any where from 35-38hz. I think it will sound good with the aeroports.
