    help with a design

    alright
    ive got 2 re audio sr12's and im about to get a sundown 1500 and run it a 2 ohms.
    the subs are sealed right now and arent loud enough or have enough low endvfor me so im gonna build a ported box.
    Re says that the optimal box is 1.5 at 35hz but i really wana get as much low end outa these as i can. I was thinking about tuning in the high 20's.
    Max external dimensions are 38x13.5x20 (WxHxD). Would like to keep the depth as shallow as i can so that i can keep some trunk space. I also have questions about whether to do a single chamber with one port or a dual chamber with a port for each sub.

    a design or advice would be amazing. Thanks guys

    You have plenty of room to work with. Check out aeroports as well -- usually can save space and port area with them as well as have the option of changing the tuning whenever needed.

    Re: help with a design

    thank you i was thinking about doing slot after all and doing about 36 square inches of port for a 3 cube box.

    stupid question but when re audio says that they recommend 1.5 cubes, is that after all displacements or before displacements
