    Dual 6 ohm VC...yikes.

    No real t/s parameters so I can't really say. 3.23 cbft (is that external or internal dims?) sealed seems fine for 2 of those 12's.

    makes wiring to the amp and figuring out your ohm load different than the normal d1 2 or 4.

    ^ What he said.

    What the wood thickness? Double baffle anywhere? Subs could still work in the enclosure. You could also invert the subs and add poly-fill to get more "air space".

    when you inverted them, you added some airspace, and yes the same or better result can be had with polyfill.

    I do not know what vehicle you have or how the box is currently installed, but the way the box is facing can have dramatic results in output, no matter what type of box it is. What amp do you use?

    well i have a ford Taurus i had been messing with the box and found that when i have it facing up its hits better then the other ways.
    and i have them running off a 5500 whtts class d spl amp. with its own battery that runs the amp
