Im putting two Earthquake balls 12's in a 2001 2dr accord . Everyone I have spoke to previously says use a ported box for SPL (which is what i want) , Is this true? And if so what is the best way to face these speakers in this car? Also , any info on how to build ported boxes would be good , I have onle built sealed boxes! Thanks! Is ported boxes and wave boxes the same thing? Confused LMFAO:banghead:

well ported is essentially a sealed w/ a pipe in it......length and diameter is determined upon what freq. u want the box tuned to and the box volume......what u need to do is get as much info for us as u can on this and we can go from there...as for which way to face the sub....thats pretty much up to u.....try it diff. ways...see what sounds loudest in your car....its usually diff. for each car...peace
