2 12s only require like 4-5cubes. 18s require like 14-15 cubes alone.

1 18 wouldnt breath in a 4 cubes box.

they don't NEED that big of a box.

I've done 18s before in 4.5/5 cubes and they work fine and meter louder then most of these installs you see with 18s in gigantic enclosures.

I'd rather have a small enclosure with less impedence rise and tune it lower instead of a stupidly big enclosure with impedence rise through the roof...that requires a gigantor port.



but to answer the question....12s will sound like a wet ***** fart in 4-5 cubes each...so you CAN build it...but it would sound horrible.

You can build a box for like 30 bucks man...don't be cheap!

why not build something like a t-line for the 12's that way the ENTIRE box is big enough. then when u switch to the 18's take out all the un-needed port walls from the t-line and change the baffle?

I thought the smaller the box, the higher the rise, which is why you can run more power with a smaller box. I could be wrong...

Technically you could do it, just fill the box with extra pieces of wood till it's time to throw the 18's in.

if it was anyone besides nizzy i would agree. but he gave you the benefit of the doubt and only gave you a 5 pter when it should be considered a perma ban. nizzy isnt a nazi mod, hes one of the laid back ones. although i do not support all of the staffs decisions this is one staff that i do support 100%. just let it go and move on. it will expire
