    Just as title states
    Would it be a loss if i joined two 6x9 in one custom box instead of having to separate boxes?
    Without any scientific calculations of volume space is there a disadvantage to this idea?

    Considering you wouldn't have any idea what size box a 6x9 needs anyways it's pretty much a crapshoot regardless. What are you trying to accomplish?

    There could be some "interaction" that would not be good. Since both bass drivers will utilize the same airspace, you could have some sonic effects due to each driver trying to make different sounds (lt and rt channels - stereo...).

    If he's building the box (I'd assume he is because I don't know where he'd find a dual 6x9 box) then he could just add a volume divider to essentially make it two different chambers.

    I'm still curious what he's trying to do here.

    Very true, I assumed one single airspace, but he didn't clearly specify. If the OP is taking about having a divider in the box, then my comment is irrelevant. I actually had a single box with a divider, with a set of 6x9s, many years ago. Worked out fine for me and I did not notice anything bad.

    One thing to keep in mind though is that having the speakers too close together, without any other tune-up speakers, can effect the sound stage (stereo image).
