    Icon32 Dual 12" Kicker L7 (06) sealed??

    I've done some searching and didn't find anything conclusive.
    What size enclosures are you guys using for the L7? Would 1.1 ft^3 each be adequate for good SQ?
    Thanks guys!

    1.1 cu ft is too small for an L7.
    I had mine in 2 cu ft 18 inches deep and it sounded much better than my previous prefab box...

    Ok, how big was your prefab? I ordered the 2.2 cube prefab for the time being but I plan on making a fiberglass enclosure thats about 3 cubes...

    Anyone else run L7s on such low volume?

    Well the subs are loud as ****, but naturally lack the lows in such a small enclosure. I'll be looking to make a huge box soon...
