    Box too small??

    I have a sealed box for a JL 10w3 that is about .57 cubic feet. on the jl website, it says that the range for a sealed box is .60-.90 cubic feet. I dont mean to nit pick, but is that size differential going to make a difference in sound quality?? then lets say a box thats .70 cubic feet?? help! should i get another box?

    It will change the qtc of the box slightly, and take more power to reach its XMax, but the SQ should be fine. Try it, see how you like it, then build something bigger. Box building is slightly trial and error to see how it sounds best in your application.
