Notes:
• Split Phantom Boxes are similar to Split Phantom Columns| Lines | Waves [C3A] except that the adjacent 2 x 4 formations are end-to-end instead of center-to-center.
• As in Split Phantom Columns | Lines | Waves you must stay on your own half of the set when doing a call in your Split Phantom Boxes.
• Imagine there is a brick wall dividing the two halves of the set. This may help prevent you from crossing over into the other half of the set.
• Historically, Split Phantom Boxes have also been known as Split Phantom Twin Boxes and Divided Phantom Columns | Lines | Waves.

Split Phantom formations CONCEPT [C4]: From a Phantom Formation consisting of 16 spots. Divide the 16-spot formation into four sub-formations of 4 spots each. Do this by drawing an imaginary circle around each sub-formation. The circles should not intersect, and the orientation of the 4 circles should be in a straight line, such as ABCD where A, B, C, and D each represent a group of four spots.

• For Split Phantom formations, two adjacent groups (i.e., AB and CD) work together in an 8-spot formation.
• For Interlocked Phantom formations, once-removed groups (i.e, AC and BD) work together in an 8-spot formation.
• For Phantom formations, concentric groups (i.e., AD and BC) work together in an 8-spot formation.
