    Box size for kicker L5 12" Whats too big?

    Ok, so basically Im wondering what size box is too big for a Kicker L5 12". My friend already had one made and so I got it for free. Its a really good box construction wise, Im just worried about the size. From what I can tell its going to be right around 1.5 cubes after displacement. Is that too big for a Kicker L5 12? Basically Kicker recommends a .88 minimum with a 2.0 max cubes. I figured this box will be ok cuz its right in the midrange. However, I hear these subs get a little boomy and distorted with too big a box. Anyways, just let me know what you all think. Also, is there anything that works like "negative" polyfill. Something to lessen the displacement.

    Remember this, if the music track doesn't have boom in it, the speaker can't make a boomy sound, fact.
