I've been on the site and asked some Q's on their forum. Sounds like an exciting setup, and quite easy to re-calculate the box size for different sizes of woofers.

If you got the space, build it. From what I understand it makes 2 10's sound....unlike just having 2 10's.

It's best to use lower excursion drivers that don't require a lot of box space. Something with no more than 12mm xmax. That's what I remember from reading on the site.

my guess is u want to try it for spl in a street class? it's good with little power. (with more power there is an even better box design)
but to get this wicked box to work in a car for spl you have to a major modification to it, it will end up being different from what is on that website.

Wow someone re-vamping some old box technology.

I did a pro audio application where I replaced this type of boxes They used 2 Gauss 15's in these boxes and the drivers handled only 250watts. Wasn't the worlds best sounding or even very loud. The club had 12 of these cabinets. I replaced them with 6 twin 18 JBL cabs and went from a 117 spl in the front of the stage, to a 131 at the same location, with no new power amps.


For boxes........KEEP IT SIMPLE......trust me
