    DC Level 4 12" Sub Box Size

    Hey guys,

    I am going to be purchasing two DC Audio Level 4 12" sub woofers, and have a question on the box size. On the website it say 1.5^3 ft per sub is recommended for ported enclosures. So obviously this would be 3^3 ft of airspace for two subs. Now, I have a box already that is 4^3 ft that I have made. Will this 1^3 ft size difference benefit or be worse off for these subs. I usually thought that it was the bigger the better really, but if I have to make a new box I would like to know if I should go the recommend, keep my old box, or try going the biggest my trunk will allow?

    Thanks for the help!

    I'd bet the box you're using right now will work fine.
