I have a 5 cubic ft. cabinet. My jbl chart says 26sq in port, no duct,for one d123. Can i use 2 d123's in the cabinet with the same port? What would be the f3 with 2 d123's vs 1 d123 in the same cabinet? Thanks for any help on this.-RUDY.

I used to live in that zip code many years ago.

If you drive 2 drivers in a cabinet designed for just a single driver, you will have a "mis-aligned" system that will not operate flat across the bandwidth.

On the other hand, I have had D123's and they don't have that much bottom end response. But they are efficient and if supplemented with a powered sub below can be very satisfying.

If you ever travel down/through Columbus, you should contact me for a visit and we can discuss your system.

You are 2.5 hrs away drive time.

BTW - What is your total system design goal, and are you running tubes or SS?
