    good to have a huge box?

    is it the bigger the box, the louder it will end up being?

    Kinda...

    The larger the box, the more efficient the sub becomes. Which means it doesn't take as much power to get the thing moving.

    yes sorta, i mean u don't need 20 cubic feet. like if the rec. is 3 ft then u can go up to like 6 or 7. just depends mostly but yes the bigger the box the louder it will be to a certain point.

    too big of a box might hurt ur sub. only extremely big.
