    Vented enclosure question

    I am making plans to build a custom enclosure, up until now all I have ever built was sealed . I would like to build a vented but I have limited space , the local shop was not real helpful with this question.

    Can two subs share the space to come up with the needed 2 cubic feet. If so would I use only one port ?

    how much dose each sub need for space? yes you can have 2 subs in one chamber as long as it is enought internal volume for both subs combined, minus the port, woofer, and bracing displacement.

    Each sub requires 2 cu ft , the plan I have so far only allows for 2.37cu ft

    you are going to need 4 cubes for the subs alone, then you need to add in driver and port displacement

    Re: Vented enclosure question

    and slot ports take up a lot of area themselves for my current situation it will need the same amount of air space if i added another sub. thats why i'm going to stick that bad boy on the outside.
