sub box

i have a '02 extended cab with the jump seats. i have two 10's in the back in a double box. so as of now i can have two people in my truck and i can squeeze three if i tip the box on end. i plan on making a new box to fit both subs in one smaller box. what i wanna do is make one like this

and put a sub on the side and the other on the top.

what u guys think about this??

That box looks terrible...If your subs share airspace, and one blows, the other will blow with it...If you want more space, just sell your 10"s and get one 12" imo....or one 10 in a ported box.

I dont see anything wrong with putting 2 subs in 1 common chamber. Thats how all my boxes are. Go look at my build for the 16 8's, they are all in 1 big ported chamber.

If one blows, wont that cause the others to blow? Or is that for sealed boxes? I remember my buddy telling me that we had to separate the air space for my 15"s because if one blew, the other would have too much airspace and blow also...or something like that...

Basically you are correct, if 2 subs are sharing the same airspace and one blows, now the
other sub has double the airspace, and it might be possible to damage that sub as well, and its going to sound like crud anyways. So a divided enclosure is usually a good idea, at least you will still have one sub, and the divider acts as a brace for the box as well to help limit the flexing of the box.

You can also make the box smaller than you should and then use polyfill inside it.
