I recently got some old school 12" eclipse sw8122dvc aluminum subs and was wondering if this box (link below) would work and sound ok. I cant find a manual or any info on them really. Ive came across some saying that these subs are really underrated and handle way more than 500w rms? What would a good amp and size for them?

I found this in a SuperHonda forum from 2004 asking about the enclosure specs for the SW8122DVC...

"since no one knew, i called Eclipse and asked them.

So for searching functions for future questions on this:

Sealed can be anywhere from 1.65-1.9 ft3
Optimal overall enclosure for these subs are 1.65ft3 per sub sealed and that will give an great overall freq response

Optimal ported should be 2.5ft3 per sub with (1) 5 inch diameter x 14.25 inch long port per sub."

Hope this helps.
