    box sizing q?

    Hi, I am trying to run two different sized subwoofers. 1 12" orion XTR and 2 orion ccobalt 8" svc subwoofers. I am trying to figure up box sizes for each. Orion recommends a sealled box size of 1.5 cubic feet for the 12" But all I can fit is a 1.3 Cf box. Will this really hurt the performance of the sub?As for the 8s I dont know what size they require, but a but I can only get .74 cubic feet per 8". I am looking for nice tight bass. I am not too worried about it booming, I just want something that will be nice and smooth. Do you think these box sizes will work?

    Sounds good to me. You could actually use a smaller box on the 8's. They usually don't need more than a half cube each for sealed applications. If I were in your position, I'd invest in a nice crossover and feed the 8's midbass signal. If they're anything like the 8's I own, they'll sound very nice between 60 and 120 hz, and you can just let your 12 cover everything below that.
