box(es) for sub(s)?? How many? What size? Here's some measurements. Answered
So... Got some subs I had lying around: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500SWE1042/Alpine-SWE-1042.html?tp=111&tab=features_and_specs
I am trying to figure out if I should vent (I don't think I should from research) and if I can do them in a single box or if it's better to put them each in a box. I also haven't found out if I should JUST double the volume for having both in one box or if it should be a different amount.
The suggested volume I've calculated is 4.1 cu ft (but that seems a bit huge). V(as) 33 liters | Q(ts) 0.66 | 10 Inch
The speakers will be in series, I don't know if this affects whether or not I can put them in a single box.
How much does the shape of the box matter? Can I make a rectangular cube and put the speakers at either end or do they need to be on the same side?
When it comes to fill would it be better to use something fluffy that takes up a large amount of space like very fluffed out cotton or is carpet always the better way to go?
I cannot find how much fill I SHOULD use. I have found suggestions for just carpet on the back wall and some for all sides wherever you can and even two people suggested to fill it to about 80% (though it did not say what with).
