You'll loose a little cone control but will gain some power handling.
Are you talking about after displacements or no?

They mean 1.5cf AFTER displacement....so your box would be almost half the rec. size.

yep its small..it will be my center console in my truck...i have one now that is sealed, but looking for more output,. I used to have subs under my rear seat, but moved my amps, processor etc under the rear seat and built a sealed center console box for a idq12. It sounds great, but dont have alot of output, barely keeping up with my front stage
