Hey guys, This question has been on my mind forever...

Is it possible to mix two sizes of subs in one enclosure? Say 15" Fi Q with 2 10" Q's?

I have never ever found this out. Or if not same enclosure make a seperate enclosure for the two 10's?

I don't plan on doing this, just curious!

people will tell you there will be cancellation issues but a local shop has 4 15s and 4 12s in a sealed wall and it sounds great

cancellation is not what i would worry about. i would worry about 10s having to big of a box or the 15 having not enough.
if they subs call for close to the same amount of airspace then i dont know y it wouldn't work.
iv never done it so i can't say anything for sure.

Maybe I will try this for fun. At the moment I got a 15" Fi Bl coming this week and I plan on around a 4.7 cube boxish.

Than maybe I will order 2 10" and put each ten in a little sealed box, around a cube or so each.

What you think? Bad idea? i've always just wanted to try it!

Two subs of different sizes in one enclosure is NEVER a good idea.



Holy crap.

I don't plan on the same enclousre, I plan on 1 15" in an enclosure, 1 10" in a sealed and another 10" in another sealed! Bad idea?

All seperate enclosures. The 15" will be ported, tuned around 35hz. If it's a bad idea than I'm not doing it, I was always just wanting to try it !

never seen/heard it before but I would assume if the enclosures are built to spec for each sub and you used used each size for different freqs. (crossovers) it would probably sound decent. But Im by no means an expert

If you have the time, do it. It won't hurt anything (in separate boxes), but like Capps said without the right crossover points it would sound like sh!t. Don't use them on the same amp either lol.

Would it pointless and stupid to actually use a permanent setup considering the variables??? Yes.
