Arrow DC box specs

This question is regarding a 12xl box.

The specs on DC's site for a 12 box is 1.5 (of course ported), do they really like that small of boxes...to me that seams ridiculously small for a ported 12 box. Question is, i have a 2.33cu box and am wondering will it be ok in that.

Is your 2.33ft3 before or after displacements? If you are running 2k before rise you should be ok if it is after displacements.

A lot of the dc sales reps will tell you not to but rusty told me he runs his 12's in about 2.1cf each...more power smaller box, less power bigger box.

My friend ran his xl 12 in 2.5cf on a dc3000.1

This is correct. Just for a base line 1.5-1.75 is what is recommended. Box specs can be different based on the specific install.

The box i have now would be exactly 2.32 after all displacements (sub, double baffle, port, and bracing). It also has 47sq in of port as i am a firm believer in sufficent port area for high excursion subs. Yes it will be on a 2k crescendo before rise, with a very good elec stystem backing it.

*edit for my awesome english skills*

I was running about the same power(to each xl) and about same size box. I'd say give it a try. I highly doubt you will damage the sub unless you are playing hella below tuning....it is an xl it is built really tough! But if you plan to put more power to it I'd say build a new box.
