Yea I'd say that's too big. Even the t1 15's only call for like 2.75-3 cubes ported each. So if they're 15's, shoot for 6 cubes net, smaller subs smaller box.

Idk about those speakrs, but a big box is going going to be an efficie.nt box. "space makes bass". And larger box has more rise, so overpowering in a dailly is less of an issue. But sometimes big boxes can sound"boomy". If youreally care about the way it sounds your going to do more than one box anyways, so go for it, try something different!
