Too be honest, I really don't know all taht much about XXXs.

Although that room does seem to be a bit small, I do believe they should still do relatively well with the correct amount of power.

(but do everyone a favor and port em :laugh: )

Should be fine.

Heck, you can get away with a lot smaller sealed. I've gone down as low as 3 ft^3 ported with no problems.

dont seal it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~~~~~~~~~

i tried mine sealed and it was ok......

ported it and it blew me away fuflling my expectations and then some..........

the SQ differance between sealed and ported for me was the exact same.....and the SPL was a million times better....

although it is capable of being sealed......its designed to perform better ported...the voice coils will cool better...less stress on the sub itself since it's not compressing/uncompressing air over and over again......sub WILL run cooler and more efficent ported..... assuming the box is doen right....

i had mine sealed 3.5cubs ....then went to 6.5cubs ported tuned to like 34Hz.....the differance was beyond night and day.....totally better in every aspect ported..... in fact i was only running 1000w rms to the sub sealed and it would still overheat..... i'm running 1800wrms ported now and it runs cool.......


port it....you'll love it......
