    I know this is oftopic, but I'm not sure as to why you'd be trying to run in a SPL contest with sq woofers. Unless it's for money, there really isn't anything that you're going to prove besides you spent more money and yours is cleaner.

    Oh naw its not off topic, but see its a coworker im going against and its for braging rights. he's talking stuff, i say i can beat him and i have 6 jl 12w6's laying in th garage so im gonna use them. well i do also have 2 mtx 9500 10's i was gonna put back in my firebird and kick his butt with them but seem to make a slot port box with those would be kinda hard so i decided to use the van and 6 12's. We are not gonna be judged on a spl meter its just gonna be all the guys i work with listening so they will be looking to feel some pressure n all,lol. All i need is a design and i can follow blueprints with no problems. So who can help me out?

    If that's the case, then you'll probably win. Since it is being tested by an actual ear, smoother and louder bass will seem better than outright farting.
