    Size of box for hc's?

    looked around for an answer on what size i should make a sealed box for 2 12" inch hcs but have not found anything specific. I have very limited room in my trunk so going with a ported box has been ruled out. I have right around 3.5 cubes to work with (i know its not much) but with two 2 12" hc's what would the recommended size be to achieve the best sq while be able to get semi loud. Remember i only have a little over 3 cubes of space. Thanks for the help.

    Port plug for 32hz daily.

    MTX 81000d give it 1225 rms at 2 ohms.

    also, DON'T put HC's in a sealed enclosure. they are not recommended in sealed enclosures, and will perform much better in a ported enclosure. I'd say a minimum of 4 cubes after all displacement ported @30hz. If u can...go more towards 5-6 cubes for great performance. peace
