The sealed box volume min/max is a huge range. Any more details that could help me determine the ideal size enclosure?

Asked by: Wellington
Hello, the recommended volume for a sealed enclosure is 0.66 to 0.75 cubic feet; this includes the driver displacement.

With a singular woofer, can you run the DVC with both coils and maintain the 4ohm resistance?

Asked by: Kylerbob

In the Q&A section you state the recommended sealed volume is 0.66 to 0.75 but the manual states 1.0 to 2.4. Which one is correct for the DB 1042?
