If you have the woofers and want to use them, well yes you can.  The mainstream will probably disagree with me.  To get the best results you will need a box with 4 seperate chambers.  The reason for the seperate chambers is the speakers are not going to move the same amount as the other set of speakers.  If you wire the voice coils of the dual voice coil speakers in series to make it an 8 ohm speaker.  Do the same to the other dvc speaker.  Place these speakers in the 2 outside chambers of the box.  Then place the svc speakers in the 2 middle chambers.  Parallel the dvc wired at 8 ohms along with the svc speaker. This will yield a 2.66 ohm load.  Wire the 2 left speakers to the left channel of the amp.  Wire the 2 right speakers to the right channel of the amp.  And remember everybody this is just a temporary setup untill he can get 4 of the same woofers.  When he does get them he will already have his box ready to go.  The mismatched speakers are just a temporary situation.  <<<  Legal Disclaimer.

Thats gonna be a task to build a four chamber box for the back if my car wiring 2 dvc's and 2 svc's to a 2ch amp -- posted image.  2 seperate boxes wouldn't do the trick? I have a sealed and a bandpass, both with 2 chambers. That would probably sound $hi**y though wouldn't it?  What's your personal opinion on the 12" kicker 06cvx's? If you have heard them in action by any chance.

Well, yeauhh!

i am an idiot provided you with a viable solution for a case where you want to make temporary use of two different sets of subs at once.  The box can certainly be two boxes, instead...but both hopefully sized properly for the given subs, and both boxes of the same type (leave bandpass out of the picture).  Both dual chambered, of course, and wired as was described above.  Just place them side by side.

If you are not in a situation where the advice will give you the temporary remedy it is intended to do, then you should slow down and rethink your long-range priorities for this sound system.

Buying on impulse can be a killer.  Is that what happened?

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.
