I have another thread up, but got a new topic. Kinda throwin the idea around of SEALING my 6 CVR 12s instead of porting. Im getting less than 8 cubes out of them right now Im sure ported, and thats horrible. What do you guys think of a 9 cube SEALED box for 6 12" CVRs on around 2000 RMS?

I think you'd be better off with the right size sealed box over sufficating them ported.

sealed would be fine, and you could add more power to them too (3000wrms to all 6 would rock ur brain)

What is your primary goal with the 6 12's? Are you mostly interested in SQ, just having them blend with but not overpower the rest of your system?

Just a loud streatbeater. My ported box is tuned to high, and I dont like the way it sounds, and Im hoping maybe a sealed box thats more proper size would give me more output and better sound. Amp is a SAZ-1500D at .5

is there a reason why you want six 12's? i bet 4 12's correctly ported in that trunk off of your supplied power will be louder than 6 12's sealed.

lmao Snoop. Well its actually just what I wanted to build.. I already had 4 of them running off around 1000 RMS and it was not as loud as where Im at right now with this ported box and my Sundown. People wanna do over the top stuff all the time and it may not make sense, but they do it. And Im sure everyone on this board falls into that catagory lol. Most people dont think its necessary to have a 140+ vehicle for daily driving but we all do lol. Id pay someone nice little bit to build a proper box to make 4 of these louder than my 6 but no ones up to the challenge locally.

Have you talked to any of the local MECA competitors to see if someone will build one for you ?

Im kinda scared to spend the money on building a sealed box, but Im pretty sure It would be louder and sound better. Anyone else got an opinion? These are CVRs btw...

save the time and hassle go ported! trust me i went from 6 12"Audiopipe TXX DC1200s sealed to just 3 of the same woofers same amp and everything except i went ported with the 3 and i got LOUDER!

or u can sell the 12s and go with 6 10's ported ud be louder and not to mention with more subs u can also add more power later on if needed
