    Box Size for 2 Arsenal 12's Ported

    Well, I currently have 3 Ascendant Audio Arsenal 12's. These subs are dual 4-ohm and I have them wired to .67-ohm on my Kicker KX1200.1 amp. The amps loves it.

    The box gives each sub 1.25 cu ft of airspace. The output is pretty good. I mean, it is a sealed box and some songs the output is tremendous. However, I would like for it to be louder.

    I have a 2001 Nissan Altima. You can see my car here, www.cardomain.com/id/james33440 to get an idea of my trunk.

    I don't believe that I can get a ported box for this trio into my trunk because of the actual trunk opening. I was actually thinking of doing a ported box for each sub but I still am not sure on whether or not it would fit with all 3 boxes.

    So, I am considering using only a pair of my Arsenals in a ported box. The subs would give me a final load of 1-ohm so I can still use my KX1200.1 amp.

    However, I am not sure on airspace requirements and what I should tune it to for daily use?

    Please give me some opinions on box designs and tuning frequenices.



    2001 Altima System:
    Alpine CDA-9855 (3Way Mode)
    Kicker Resolution RS6 Components (Active Setup)
    CDT Tweeter Image Enhancement Kit
    3 Ascendant Audio Arsenal 12's (Sealed)
    Kicker KX650.4
    Kicker KX1200.1 @ 0.67-ohm

    cutsheet if you're lazy:

    if you can fit that you could most likely also fit this:

    and get the recommended net volume.

    if you have more width or height you could get the recommended size box and give up less depth.

    didn't you get a Q from Fi?

    how'd it compare to the arsenal?

    EDIT: or was it an X? how did they compare?
