    Box too big?

    I built a sealed box for my two idq12 v2.

    Speakers are seperated by a divider. Each chamber has about 1.5 cu. ft.

    On image dynamics website, it recommands .55 to 1.0 cu. ft.

    Will having 1.5 cu. ft. per sub damage the subs any, or give poor perfromance?

    Obviously response won't be exactly the same, performance depends on your driver. Most likely it'll sound pretty close to what you're looking for, and you might get a little more boom for your buck, just take it easy on the power.

    Thanks for the quick response, EarDrummin. Can't wait till I actually have both of my subs so I can hook it up. Had to send one off for repair a few months back.

    Power handling will be reduced and probably by a lot. Frequency response will be about the same. Transient response will not be as tight.

    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
