03-25-2003, 08:11 PM
hey i have a JL Audio 12w6v2 in a sealed box (facing down) right now with 700 watts going to it and it hits way hard, but i was wondering if a ported box would be louder?
im happy with the tight clean hit, but i want it to be louder even if that means taking away <u>some</u> SQ.
~~~ what should the demensions be on the box and the port... and drawings or input would be appreciated, thanx

i had 2 12w6v2's and i wouldnt send it 700w in a ported box. i had them both sealed with about 650w and it loved it. if i were you id just stay sealed or cut down your amount of power.
