.05 to .5 ft cubed, depends on a number of variables. I would assume . 1 for a 12 and .2 for a 15.

Are you concerned about enclosure volume being affected.

Yes. But if it's that small an amount it only effects my port tune 1hz or so.. I can live with that.

Yeah it really isn't much, that's why nobody really discusses it. If it was a concern most woofers would probably have their volume listed in their specs.

Cool that is what I needed to know. biggrin.gif

So .5 for two 15" is pretty reasonable assumption... and .2 for a single 12" seems reasonable right ?

I think SI list the HT18 driver as 0.25 cu ft displacement: http://stereointegrity.com/index.php?id=60

Yeah that would work, and even if you were off by a multiple of 2, it may change your response by a small percentage of a db

Put the Guide in Driver size order and note: F3, SPL, and Box size required
It depends on your tradeoffs and compromises ( Low frequency extension, SPL and box size requirements )
Pick ONLY 2 and give up the other wink.gif
