    Re: box too big?

    if im thinking correctly, Yes.. arnt those more SQ subs? not saying they need sealed, but 4.5 cubes for an SQ or even SQL driver seems a little much.. check what they recomend, or maybe someone with expirience can further help u..

    I'd stick with 2-3 cubes per driver if you're going ported. I'd also be tempted to port around 25-28hz, but it all depends on what you're looking for.

    1.25-2.25 cubes per driver would probably be nice if you went sealed.
