    That box looks like a PITA. What is it going in?

    My daughter's 95 Grand Cherokee. It will fit in the rear, behind the rear seat with 1" to spare all around.

    Make sure too bolt it down too the floor. I see a couple "chanbers" that are not being used. Vent them and mount the amps in them. Intresting design, I like it.

    Amps are too big to mount inside. They are going on the back side of the box.
    The speakers are Alphasonik 600 Series 10". Each speaker has.55 cu ft. Specs are .5 to .75 and after hearing them in a bigger box, I prefer to stay on the small end. The 300 watts each will be plenty of power to sustain them in that small of a box.

    Personally, I would build it as one large comman chamber. Gets you a little more airspace for the subs, but wouldn't increase the overall size of the box.

    If you notice the extra sides inside the box, you will realize that I was trying to reduce the size of the chambers. 2 are .52, 2 are .57. That box could not be made a single chamber without making the shared space way too big. Plus, with a single chamber, any small differences in voicecoil could have the speakers fighting each other on extension. These are not high end speakers, I will take all the insurance I can get. The rear 2 speakers have the larger airspace, but with them pushing into a finite area in front of them, they should sound as tight on 90 htz waves as the fronts and still be able to sound good at 45 htz.

    You really shouldn't have them in different sized air spaces. It will most likely lead to some cancellation issues.
