LIke sh!t, not that great to begin with. I had the same one with three R2, 12's on 1300rms it sounded good and loud but not as good as the single ported 15 I have now. Remember, the chambers are uneven in volume so you would have a difficult time tuning. I myself made cutouts in the baffles to make a single large chamber, then I syuffed it with poly, it sounded much better. Polo..
