    i believe you need to go with 2 or below. the 12 should be 2.5 and the 15 is 3. 4^3 internal not including port space and sub displacement is way too big for a 10. my 15 runs 3^3 b4 sub and port displacement.

    the design i went with was some guy that did a crapload of testing on termpro back in the day i believe and found that this type of enclosure was best. it since has spread around the forums and is pretty standard enclosure. it goes against what orion "recommends." i called orion one day and they said that enclosure was for "competition only." there are alot of people running their h2s to spec and people who arent, like me. i absolutely love my setup. its loud and clean.

    For the 10", 1.5cubes net, 20sq" will do the trick nicely given your power.
