Default Calling all 6th order experts

I am building a demo/comp vehicle. I want to do a nasty 6th order with 6-8 15s or 18s. Two questions.

1. Parallel or series? What are the differences besides the obvious.
2. What do you tune the two chambers to?

Series, a good starting point is 30/60.

For a quasi 6th you will need a shyte load of space. Less is more as far as cone area here. For that many subs ~24 cubes for your rear chamber... about twice that for the front chamber... if you have 70 cubes gross to work with then game on bro... if not, might be further ahead to do a proper 4th or big ported wall

Parallel 60/30 has always done very well for me.

Looking for maximum load at the passenger side. So I was thinking driver side port but I'm open to ideas. Never built a 6th

Already have your drivers? T/S parameters of the subs you are considering?

No drivers yet. Most likely will be built at fi to whatever specs I'm looking for. Lucky enough to live in Vegas and have a in at fi.
