    Need help with deciding on new subwoofer enclosure

    Currently I have 3 12" kicker cvx subwoofers in a sealed enclosure behind the third row seat of my escalade. I will be posting pictures tomorrow as I'm in bed and just started pondering. I took some quick measurements, very quick I need to get more accurate measurements...lol

    Exterior Dimensions
    Height- 20" currently but can go higher this is just for now.
    Width - 48"
    Depth - 12" going to work on this one too sure I can squeeze another inch or two

    Will be using 3/4" MDF to build enclosure.

    46.5 * 18.5 * 10.5 = 9032 / 1728 = 5.23 cubic feet

    I think this should be correct.

    I want to run either one or tow fifteen inch subwoofers. Think if I go with one I can go vented and if I go with 2 only sealed because of my size restrictions. I will be using Phoenix gold xenon 1200.1 amplifiers. I can go with either one or two doesnt matter.

    What subwoofers would you reccomend for this setup I want it to sound good but I also want to be able to get loud if needed hehehehe

    So far I've got Diamond audio hex series 3 ways going into the front stage and going to install diamond hex series in the rear also running off of a phoenix gold xenon 200.4 amplifier that does 200 x 4 for my vocals.

    Lets hear your ideas and thank you all information is very much appreciated.
