    I am soon going to build a vented box for my 13w1v2's. They are currently in sealed boxes built to proper specs, but they dont hit as low as I would like them to, and I plan to build a vented box for them. My question is am I better off building one large box with one huge port or a box with two seperate chambers, one for each sub, vented individually?

    do you want the "correct" way or the way most installers will do it?

    "correct" - two chambers

    common - one chamber

    I just want whatever is going to hit lower. My main goal here with this box is to get these subs to stop bottoming out around 40 hz.

    have someone (shop) design you a box in termpro or some other program...or a competent installer can do it. they will custom tune the ports to whatever frequency you want. i usually had boxes tuned ~32-35 Hz. but then again, i listen to mainly rap

    yeah i was planning on mapping the box in winISD. these subs are a little loud for my taste (i only bought them because they would fit in a single cab truck i no longer own) so i was planning to tune to around 26 hz to lower the overall volume and get it to hit real deep. anyone know if single or dual chamber makes a difference in sound?

    It shouldn't make a difference if propperly designed.
    I would go with two chambers and two slot vents.

    This is an ignorant comment.
