Default DUAL PURPOSE CABINET

Hi guys
Crazy question here. ..
I am wanting to build a 6.6 ft3 cabinet to house 2 Volt 2500.1 mid.bass drivers and tune the cabinet as low as humanly possible for when it is running on its own and then when I turn on the 18 inch Auras I will cut the drivers off at 50hz.
Can the cabinet be utilized this way.
My point is that I will run this cabinet solo cut at 380hz/3800 with my ATC mid n SS 7100
Sometimes and other times with subs..
Thoughts

Hi,

That box is way too big for two of those Volt drivers.
Maximum is 2.5cft for two tuned to 22Hz IMO.

They will need some EQ to combat the bass droop
due to using low Qts drivers in boxes around the
total Vas of the drivers. Bigger boxes don't help.

rgds, sreten.
