i am thinking about going a sealed box for my two 12s in a single cab truck, i wanted to go ported but everyones saying it would be to much work to design.. and i dont have lots of room

will it still get loud with a sealed box?
will i hit the highs and lows good still?

so going sealed is pretty much pointless then.... i want a ported one.. but there isnt the room to port the box.... so i was goign to build a sealed box and slap prolly a few peices of 4'' PVC piping through the box so they act as a port..

would that be be wise?
would it at least be a step above a sealed?

haha thanks for the help man.. because i didnt want something that was just stupid...

someone was saying that if i build a bigger the average sealed box that it will still hit highs and lows relatively good

btw i like hitting low bass..... would a sealed do this??
and can sealed play lots of diff genres of music.. i mostly listen to rap, but would it be able to handle all types?

Sealed boxes get low and sound tight .. Rap and heavy bass is usually a ported box but sealed will sound much cleaner .. hope this helped u , gd luck

alrite.. thanks for the help man.. it helped me decide alot..... now that i know that a sealed box will sound alrite....

is there that much diff in a ported then sealed when it comes to loudness.. becaue i have heard some sealed boxes get loud as hell, and some of which even beat out a ported

Usually is the key word here.

Also, ported can sound just as clean as sealed, you just need to know what you're doing.


For the poster, go with the recommended sealed size until you learn some more about CA&E.

Yes, there can be. In a sealed enclosure, there will most always be a higher peak somewhere in the f response when compared to a sealed enclosure. There are many variables though that affect this. It's all in the build.

I ve done a few ported boxes tuned higher that sound as tight as a sealed especially for rock and kick drums, so i no it's possible but he will be just as happy with rec. sealed like u said
