    From 3 10s to 4 12s

    I need help with a design. I'm tryin to fit 4 12s in a sealed enclosure in my hatch but, i don't want them to fire up, forword or directly to the side. My space comes to 36" wide 17.5" tall and 66" deep. All my designs had canelation flaws So i gave up on them. Can someone please help me?

    You have a ton of room. You could go to a 7th order bandpass and just see ports!!! I would think any bandpass design could hide the subs completely. You just need a good formula to design the box correctly.

    this would be nutso just 4 6" ports firing forward or rearward

    "i don't want them to fire up, forword or directly to the side."

    so what then? angled baffle? down firing is you only direction you could fire, there is only up, front rear or side to fire the woofers.

    Re: From 3 10s to 4 12s

    umm i would say impossible because u need like 50 inches wide

    u only have enough to barely even get 3 subs if that firing back unless if possible u could not make the box as deep and angle the front like a v

    you know what i am saying so 2 subs on each side and angle the box like a v
