    Need Your Help On A Box

    Hey whats up, ok i have 4 subs im going to put in the bed of my truck facing the cab, and im going to port through with a boot inbetween the cab and the bed, anyhow.. Im building a sealed box my question is, would it be better to build 4 seperate chambers or all four in one long chamber. the speakers require like 56liters of space each.

    Also if it is better for one chamber would i just multiply 56L by four, or is there some weird formula im going to have to use?

    each speaker needs to have its own separate chamber
    if you just have one big chamber the subs wont sound right at all

    The other reason for seperate chambers is structural integrity.. without the seperate enclosures your box may become a shrapnel grenade..the dividers provide support.
