    Multiple Subwoofers without chambers

    Hey guys,

    Can you run multiple subwoofers in 1 box without having seperate chambers for each sub. Like some of the plans sticked show 1 area for mutiple subs. Please help me out as im almost finished my box. I will post pictures once its complete.

    yeah, that's fine. No need for chambers.

    Only benefit is with two chambers, you can still run one sub if the other fails.

    False. When one subwoofer dies, you'll still be feeding the other 2x the power. This is unless you're using a 2 channel amplifier and are running them independently. However, this usually isn't the case.

    well if your wired to a 2 ohm load with 2 dual 2 ohm subs (series/parallel) , when 1 woofer blew you would be sitting @ 4 ohms no?

    Valid point. Also if you do dual chamber sealed, it adds a little more bracing.
