hello jmac am thinking of making a sealed or maybe a bandpass box but i dont know which is better , i have two (12inch) pioneer subs (4ohm 88db 500rms svc each) and am using a rockford 500bd amp to give 250rms to each sub , i listen to rap most of the time and i want a box that has a good punch and some boomy bass any ideas or tips ? thxxxx:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

If you want "boomy bass", I'd suggest a ported box

I'm going to agree with nova and say go ported.

Yeah ported is definitely the way to go if you listen to a lot of rap, and prefer the boomy sound.

you aske about sealed vs. bandpass and i would have to go will bandpass....but they are so **** hard to get right.....im going to add another vote on the ported box.

well i dont recomend bandpass at all.......unless they are built for a specific sub.....they tend to have very limited freq. response at which they sound good at....
