    box too small?

    I have a box built for my 15in XXX but it might be too small.
    Its 2.8cu. @ 32hz and the optimum is 4cu
    Would it still be loud and reach the lows with the 1500w I have? What should I expect?

    Re: box too small?

    so would it be better to have 2.8cu sealed instead of ported then?
    And how does poly fill help?
