    How much room do you have to work with? Will you be using a slot port or aeroport? If you have enough room, I'd do 6-7ft^3 tuned to 35-37hz.

    6.5 to seven cubes tuned to 36 hz would be best for it in my opinion!

    I think you'd be really happy with a 6.5ft^3 box with a couple of 15" long 6" aeroports, which would give you a tune between 35-36hz.

    how much power and what style of music? You can go down to 5.25cubes if you have a lot of power. Tune to 35Hz if you mostly play C&S stuff.

    Otherwise I 2nd what DJ recommended for a good all around daily box...

    Re: Aq HDC3 18 box

    iirc when using aero ports there isnt a need to use the 16 sq in of port area per cube rule.

    I'd do around 6cubes net @ 36-38Hz. 2 6" aero's would be fine...
