Sealed=usually better sq. Ported box=loud and if you tune lower, you will have better sound quality. If you tune higher, it will be more 'booomy'

I'd go ported and tune in the high 20's or low 30's if you want a mix of spl and sq.

lol i like everything about my bros system except it takes up his whole trunk :laugh: but yeah i hooked my sub up in a freind of mines car and he has 2 alpine type r's 12'' dual 4ohms. we disconnected one of his subs and installed mine with his 2 channel diesel amp useing only one channel (around oh 400watts and it hit deff harder than i expected from a hundred dollar sub i mean it was deff louder than a 12'' type R in my oppinion and in a sealed enclosure. im installing it in my hatchback, and have a ported box and instead of a diesel no name amp im goin to have a abahn amp over powering it a lil bit to oh i think i just creamed my pants for 300 its sounds good and loud, like maybe like half as loud as my older bros which for 300 is loud :veryhapp: :naughty: :eek:
