    About to start a build. Quick Question....

    I'm building a sealed enclosure for my 2 - 12" L7's. Is it best to have them in seperate chambers or have them share one big chamber ? This is my first build. So I really don't know too much about it. Some recommendations on the size I should build it would be much appreciated. It's going in a Nissan X-Terra.

    I'm not trying to win any competitions or anything, just doing this for a little experence and something to do. I have a vented enclosure I'm happy with if this becomes a disaster. But thats why I'm starting out easy with a sealed box. Thanks.

    Just to add to that the partition in the middle will also add bracing to your box making it stronger.

    If your building a sealed box, you dont need to seperate chambers, the only advantage is strength. For ported, I prefer to seperate chambers, but also not necessary. The important thing in building seperate chambers is that there exactly the same. Any difference in volume will cause a different response curve from each sub.

    since you're building a sealded box you might as well make a partition between both subs. in case one sub blows one day the other sub won't have double the air space to play in and won't be subjected to any possible harm.
