Don't put them all in a common box no matter what.

I would sell the 10 inch and get another 12. You could put them in seperate boxes but why bother... the results probably would not be that good anyways.

Ok, if you put them all in a sealed box chamber it and make the chambers different for the different subs.

If you port it build proper boxes for each and try to tune the 12's and 10 to the same frequency.

Since you're using one amp you have to cross them over the same so that limits your options a bit.

Sell the 10" to a friend and then take that cash and save some more and buy the 3rd 12". Build a box with 3 separate chambers and use the two you have now, adding the 3rd one when you can afford it.

Putting that 10" into the mix unless to use for a completely different frequency range than the 12's just isn't a good idea.

I'm going to take a quick guess and say you've never heard you're two 12" T1's in a ported enclosure in your vehicle and with proper power to them.
This is what you should do IMO as this setup is going to have the ability to sound very good and get very loud given the correct ported enclosure and the correct sized amplifier.

Use different amps and different crossovers and different boxes.

The 12's should do 25-60Hz and the 10 60-100Hz.

if you live in the gta call S&S electronics. They will have a 12' t1 and you can probably trade in the 10" and add a little cash on the side. they are one of the sponsers of the forum.

if they are new, you can try and trade the 2x12's for 3x10's. Then you will have 4x10's, an even load with more power from your amp (depends on wiring), and the 4x10's will probably use about the same space as 3x12's with similar output. Just another idea.
