i've had both ported and sealed with my 10" L7's. first i had them sealed with about .75cu per chamber, and they got pretty low, but output was so-so. then i built a ported box with this plan-http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=29cubes33hz36sqin5xd.png and changed the ports from 1.5" wide to 3" wide, and the tuning from 33hz up to 37 or 38hz. somewhere in between i still havent figured it out exactly. i talked to pole cat and he said 38hz and let em wang, so i went and did it. let me tell you if you want to get the most out of these 10" PORT EM'!

haha thanks for the reply man i appreciate it i will deffinetlley be looking at these dimensions you posted but since the plans are for round subs do i have to change any of the dimensions to incorporate my square L7's?
