    4 L7's Common Chamber?

    Hey guys, quick question... I got a box design from Fargof, it looks great but i am just wondering if there is any real disadvantage to running the 4 12" L7's in a common chamber box... the box is 11ft^3 and tuned to 35htz...

    The only disadvantage is if 1 blows the other ones will hate it because they'll overexcurt, but that doesnt happen too much as you'll know if it does.

    Say the 4 subs are seeing exactly 11 cubes. Each is seeing a little more than 2.75 cubes.

    Not exactly sure how much, but thats how it works. You can test it by building 2 boxes, 1 with a single chamber, and 1 with 4 seperate chambers, all tuned to the same with the same amount of port area per sub.

    The box with the common chamber of airspace will peak at a lower note, meaning that each sub is seeing more airspace than its 2.75.
