    2 subs in ported box=2x the box volume?

    I am thinking about getting two 1000W RMS 12" subs, but only if I can build a ported box that fits my trunk. At http://www.reaudio.com/speaker_box/LPort_Box_Calc.html, I can calculate the size of a box.

    Now, I am assuming each sub will need 1.5 cubic feet at 35Hz.

    If I were to make one box to contain 2 subs, does that mean I can design a box with 3 cubic feet at 35Hz, and it will perform the same as a one-speaker box with 1.5 cubic feet?

    I'll laugh my *** off if I can make this box and fit it in the trunk of my Sentra.

    if u have the same power going to 1 sub vs the same power going to 2 subs, essentially if every other factor was identical you would have double the output

    yes, having 2 subs requires twice the volume... but for ported boxes, the port length and area should change from one to two subs.
