Ive never done it or heard it myself, but most people recomend against it. Also what are you powering them with?

Don't mix sub sizes if they are covering the same frequency range. In fact avoid it like the debil. The problem most often encountered is cancellation.

If they are crossed so that they are producing their own seperate frequency range then go right ahead.

Try and tune the 10's more towards mid bass, and the 12s for low

If you got a hearse buddy, go for some 15s when you get the cash
