    I ran the Alchemy Parameters through WinISD and FlexSYS and came up with 1.66ft^3 per sub. This is a little larger than I prefer, as my Alchemy's are at about 1.5ft^3 per sub and seem quite happy there durring some preliminary testing I did.

    Quite the impressive subs all arround! They have exceeded my expectations.

    take it easy,

    Adding to this----

    Just trying a few more things with my Alchemy's...

    Decreased the enclosure size to 1ft^3 exact.

    He he- smaller enclosures do have thier advantages!!!

    The output in this size enclosure is incredible also! - the subs even sound a bit tighter- definately what I am looking for.

    Leaving them here this time- 1ft^3 seems to be the magic number!!

    take it easy,

    1ft^3 means exactly 1 cubic foot.

    Its just a basic algebra symbol.

    as ^2 would be square- ^3 would be cubic

    this may explain things a bit better
