I've not built and measured a cabinet loaded with the SWR, so I have no idea.

Not these 12s... They're good, but they're not that good.

Still rocking my "upstairs" system. It is all about compromise (read this as "not having a room full of huge subwoofer cabinets"), but it...

Suppose I should have checked that.

Nope, that driver will not physically fit inside the LilWrecker as I folded it. The mounting depth (minus the frame thickness) is the same as the cabinet...

Simulations are only one portion of the answer. 1 vs. 2 cabinets, total volume, the footprints and how things fit into the room are also important.
