    SPL difference in Box Sizes

    I have 2 12" SE's (Check sig for info) in a ported box. It is only 3.3 cubic feet and the SE's are recommended 2+ cubes each. How much louder do you think my system would get if I built a new 5 cubic foot box still tuned to 35 Hz then my current box? Noticably louder???

    Subs: 2 12" RE SE's
    Box: Custom 3.3 Cubic foot ported
    Box tuned to 35 Hz
    In The Making: 5.1 cubic foot Box
    Ported to 28 Hz with
    Pluged Port (35 Hz)

    in your opinion do you think it is worth all the work to make a new box to have it bigger or should I keep it?

    Might as well, what else do you have to do . Just play around with them. They will hit deeper if you go bigger too, just in case you didnt know.
