    one word: CANCELLATION.

    don't do it. run 4 10's or 4 12's. not 2 of each.

    you've got a nice little system going on, yet you've got the ignorance of a n00bx.

    Re: Custom box using two diffrent size pairs of subs

    how about a crossover separating the 10's and the 12's? Just wondering.

    I'm the type that tries things that most people laugh at, but you never know what you can learn from your experience.

    Let's say it does sound like crap, but what if you were determined to make it work then actually did make it work, you then can thumb your nose at the nay sayers.

    I see a lot of guys here make the largest box possible, personally i try to make the smallest box possible, but that's just me.

    It will sound like crap. Your clouded judgment will cause the subs to sound "great" and "awesome" however.

    No one makes the largest box possible, nor the smallest. We aim to build the proper enclosure, usually following manufacturer's suggested specs.

    Two different sized woofers in the smallest box possible? Gonna sound awesome

    Re: Custom box using two diffrent size pairs of subs

    Here the REAL story.

    While not IDEAL...it will work as long as all subs are in thier own enclosure.
    I personally have seen a system like this in action (2-12" and 1-15).. I try to get the owner to change the design to 5-12",but he refuses. He loves it.

    So do what you like-its your system.
