Which box would be better for (4) maw 12's ? I have plenty of room to work with. Dimensions for the box are about 46" by 30" by 11" . But ill have dividers between each sub most likely. so question is... which will be better and louded? ported or sealed?

Thanks,
Mike

if i go ported i should leave the box open with no dividers for best performance correct?

I would put a divider. I thought if there is no divider and one of the subs blows or goes wrong mechanically then the other one has a high possiblility of messing up as well. I have seen this first hand with 2 12" RF's

If you put each sub in its own seperate chamber, youll have to port every chamber, which wont be easy unless you use aeros. You can use one big common chamber with a lot of bracing. But as stated, if one goes bad, youll be out of commision for a while.
