Ok what does it really mean when it is said that a vented box is tuned to a certain frequency? Also is it true that a sealed enclosure yeilds better SQ and a vented gives more SPL? and is it possible to have both in a vented or sealed set-up?

ill do my best to help you out...with my limited knowledge of ported boxes. the tuning of the box has something to do with the peak (loudest) frequency. the higher its tuned to...the louder it gets (in dBs) at its designated frequency. the trade off is that the lower its tuned to, the more SQ it has...but it also wont be as loud. i think it might also have something to do with the box size....Jmac would know better than i would about that.. and it is correct that if built correctly, sealed enclosures yeild better SQ and a vented gives more SPL.

pretty much i was poor at the time and was in the market for my first subs. After researching they were actually the best for the price. IMO. However it is time for me to upgrade. I am placing my order for a single e15A.22
Now i just need an amp that is stable to one ohm and 1000W
my power acoustik is 1000 @ 2 ohms.

Get the Avionixx ATX800.2.... it does an underrated 800w at 4ohms bridged.

i think if he was racist...the little guy holding the sign would have a pillowcase over his head. and to be quite honest, if i myself were racist, i would not be proud if i was in the KKK.... for the record, i hate everyone equally.

311 refers to the band, not a ****ing rumor that was started back in 1996 and which has been disproven time and time again.

i realize that. and i know that the band members are not part of the KKK. however, im not fimiliar with how a rumor got started...but nonetheless...people have too much time on their hands if they can sit around and say 311 means KKK simply because its 3 times the eleventh letter of the alphabet.

I dont remember the specifics of the rumor. Basically some HS kid figured out K was the 11th letter and 3 11's were 3 K's= KKK. Then schools started banning 311 t-shirts and all that. Either way that wasnt towards you... but the ignorant SOB that started this whole fued.
