    Quick Q about adding set of subs to a box and how it affects tuning

    I have two 4.14cuft boxes (theyre actually one big box with a divider down the middle) so the entire box is about 8.28cuft. Anyway i have the subs inverted on the top of the box and its tuned to 36hz. What affect would there be if I added two more subs to the from of the box so there are two subs sharing the same 4.14cuft of airspace? I can post pics if I didnt explain it well enough.

    are they 12's? so you have 1 sub in each 4cuft box?

    it would create an isobaric style alignment. which would make the woofers think they are seeing double the airspace, which i dont know how it would react in a ported type application.

    i dont think you would need that much airspace though... in my oppinion, you will be better off just leaving it as it is.

    nah, they wouldn't be able to hit the lows as well in the reduced airspace

    and 15" L7's sound like *** above 50hz or so, imo

    no.

    adding more speakers is not the answer to getting louder.
