depends on what your going for.   what type of music you listen to.   If you are looking for clarity of Loudness, or vice versa.

Also how much real power you will be putting to them will play a very large factor in how they sound in certian boxes.    What will you be powering all this with?

Amps? Alternator? Batteries?

6 kicker L7 12's  2006 models, 3 rockford T10001BD amps, dual alternators (stock + 200 amp aftermarket), o gauge power wire off of dual batteries under hood (stock battery + optima yellow top)2 wires, one off of each battery, & 1 powercap 400 battcap.  truck idles at 14.9 volts.  well they guy listens to mostly rap music and wants alot of bass.  he wants to compete locally also.  i guess he wants more street bass than spl,  he  wants to bang it all the time, not just burp it on a meter.  i hope this helps.  thanks alot.

I would go with about 2-2.25cu ft per woofer if you can fit it

so roughly 12-13.5cuft    try plotting out some boxes on winISD to test port sizes.

make the box as big as you can and port it becuse those things sound the best with some real air to each one of them i would say run 4 of them in a 4 cubic foot box ported and let it wang becuse i think 4 ported in a good box is gonna sound better than 6 in a box hat is short of some air for each of them

giving one cu ft to each sub and port it compared to Jeff's recommended 2.2-2.25 cu ft??
