This may be a stupid question but I have to ask. The 12" subs I am buying have a suggested box size of 1.25cu ft. If I need to build a box for 2 with no sepperation I need a total cu ft of 2.5. Correct?

Yes, internal volume, and have to take in consideration displacemnt, etc.

alot of ppl are just lazy & build without separation but i prefer do it by the book & put separate chambers .....

I would venture to say if you put to a real test seperating the boxes will produce a better overall sound compared to not seperating them at all....I theorize this based on the waves produced by the subwoofer

well i've never bothered 2 actually test that separate theory cause every single good audio site i checked has advised that its better that each sub gets its own individual air vol (long explanation) .

An advantage of the separator is that it considerably stiffens up the box which reduces loss of energy due to box flexing .

Bottom line - it only costs u a extra piece of wood ,some screws & a lil glue .
What i actually do in my ride is make 2 individual boxes cause 1 large 1 is rather heavy & clunky to manage - but it all depends on your ride .....

another reason that has been stated on the forum before is that if you have a divider and one sub blows the one left isnt going to get damged by the sudden change while playing from the other sub blowing...ps...rovin you have a good point creating sperate boxes the way you do would create a lighter box if you wanted to move them ill keep that in mind also if you wanted to experiment with the box it would be easier also
