Default Where to find box dimensions?

I need box dimensions for a 12" Audiobahn Flame Q(aw1208q) and my two 15" JL Audio W0'*(the older ones with the bubble dust cap)

Can some one help me with finding a website thats tells u box specs for subs.

I was thinking about a sealed box for the 15'* and a slot ported box for the Flame Q, as i think thats what would sound best for those subs.

would also like to know ported dimensions for 15'* and sealed for Flame Q.

You want to build 2 boxes for 2 different applications ??

It'* not advised to mix sub sizes in 1 box or 1 application.


Ported or Sealed ?

IMO Sealed are better

Im not mixing subs... I just want to build proper boxes for these subs.
I agree sealed is better. But Flame Q'* do better in large ported boxes

Call up Audiobahn, I wasn't able to find any specs for box sizes other than numerous people'* opinion, and you can imagine how varied that was.
