Default HDC3 18's enclosure questions

i have roughly 20^3 to work with, want to run 2 18" HDC3's, unfortunately their website is real ****ing broad, and lame. it doesn't say anywhere the displacement of the drivers. what is it? also 12cuft seems a bit small, realistically what should i build this box at? i plan to tune around 32Hz

this is all their site shows...

small is what the box i got with my 2 18 hdc3 18s is in after displacement it ends up to be around 6 cubes and on a soundstream rubicon2500.1 tuned quite high also they sound good n prolly would do numbers well but not good for lows i say if u can over power em in a smaller box theyll take every second of it

Always heard they like about 6 per. As far as disp., you could use a different 18 to get it somewhere close.
