    Icon12 chambers vs free air

    i am building a box for 6 kicker 12s and i was wondering if free air inside the box will be ok or should i make chambers. 4 12s will be on the top of the box and the other two will be on the front side fcing away from the car and i dont know if there will be enough room for chambers for all 6 subs

    No need for separate chambers, but make sure you brace it well. Double baffle would be a good idea too. Good luck!

    Use one common chamber with lots of internal bracing

    because the chamber can act as part of the bracing

    i wouldnt do that. Yes the chamber dividers would act as bracing, but they take up more interior volume than bracing. meaning the box has to be larger.
