hey wuts up
need some help picking out a box
a bouth a Alpine type X and running off an eclipse 1000wattz (500x2 850 bridged)

what would be better for this settup a sealed or ported and wut are the diffrenced in sound between the two

I'll be going with a sealed box when i buy my type-x... The type-x is more of a SQ sub, and the sealed box will help this feature. You may want to try and find something a little more powerful amplifier wise. Ive read that these subs like having at least 1000w rms, especially in a sealed box.

Sealed - Better SQ
Ported - Better Output

In english:eyebrow: for you.

low tuned ported = sq + added output.

That's a rather open ended statment to make.

but then so is saying that sealed is the best way for sq.

Exactly. And in no way did I say it is the best way for SQ.
