    I have two 12's from another project(my car) that are 4ohm each and curious on a box design to put them both in I can put them in seperate boxes, but would prefer one.
    Thanks

  2. a box design is null and void without knowing the application and the drivers themself (or atleast the T/S parameters)

    They're some Rockford Punch's from my car. Application wise there going to connect to my kenwood 6070, using th e factory amp. Mostly movies gonna be running through it, and some music

    Sorry if i was unclear i meant the factory Receiver(in my house), also the speakers are both 4 ohm
     
  6. without going into detail, you will be very unhappy with the results of this driver in the house. plus that amp will not be able to drive subs unless in series....and still not enough juice

    Was planning on running them in series, the room there in is only 10x12 and They're better than nothing. I will most likely invest in a new powered sub in a few months this is just going to e a crutch till I can afford something better.

    When all else fails, and you don't have any T/S parameters to work with (detailed specifications of the speakers), then a large sealed box is usually a safe bet. You could probably do better if you knew more information, but you could also do a lot worse.

    Thanks think it would be better to seperate the boxes or have them both fire into the same chamber? I know this is not going to be near the greatest, but it will be better than nothing if my budget permited this I'd skip it, but I need some bass till I can afford something better. Again thanks for your help so far, all your comments are appreciated.
