    so how important is it...

    do you all usualy make a seperater in the middle of your box to split the subs? I know its safer, but i'm anxious to get this box done and thats the only thing im missing. Just wondering if any of you dont do it, and your thoughts on it...

    Sealed box, wouldn't risk it. Ported will be fine

    to tell you th etruth if you seal them in one common box well...
    you are lookin for trouble
    1 the subs have to work harder to move the same distance
    2 if you hook them up out of phase well bang is the result
    3 if one blows that one will run as a passive radiator and the other will prolly go fizzle pop bang

    if separate

    more bass

    I am running my 3 HE2's in a single 6cu' box (w/o dividers) with a passive. I know that this contradicts what the other guys just said in every way, but then again hearing is believing. I have always ran 3 12's with a passive (for abut 6 years now) in an undivided box and have always had amazing results.

    It's perfectly fine to run them in a single enclosure as long as they're not running in stereo - which would be pointless with subs.
