I am in the works of getting another 12" Type X and another 1501d. I want to maximize potential while keeping some trunk space. what would be my best option?

it's a trunk car (94 t bird) and the one i have now is really nice ported at 30hz.

Keep trunk space :wow:
... With Type Xs :wow:

GO SEALED

it may be impossible!!! :crazy:

it will happen though. i like ported. idk how sealed will sound

Screw trunk space, if you wanted space you would have left it empty, lol.

Moora room for woofas :)

i have a spare and a toolbox. i don't want it in my back seat. the seats will be folded down.

NissanKicker
06-27-2008, 12:22 PM
Does that car have a spare tire hole? or is it deep in the back on the trunk?
.... Tool box can go on the floor inside the car ( If the seat are to be folded down. )

jco1385
06-27-2008, 12:25 PM
the spare is in a "well" but if the box goes over it i can not get to it. and there is no space in the floor between the seats. i might have to re-arrange some things to get it to work, but i have to have the spare

I was amazed at how well a sealed box sounds

I was like you and thought that ported was the way to go

Turns out i like sealed alot better

jco1385
06-27-2008, 12:29 PM
yeah, i've always had ported. so i am biased.

anyone know what the space difference would be ported vs. sealed?

06-27-2008, 12:29 PM
these subs do sound good sealed. to go ported your gonna double how much room the one takes up

jco1385
06-27-2008, 12:31 PM
these subs do sound good sealed. to go ported your gonna double how much room the one takes up

thats exactly what i was thinking. and i may do it like that. but if sealed will net me a considerable amount of space i'll def consider it. i'd probably have to build the box in the car :crap:

NissanKicker
06-27-2008, 12:34 PM
Nope!
... that trunk is big enough to slide, push, and kick the box in...

LOL!

jco1385
06-27-2008, 12:36 PM
i know the cougar was. it had a deeper opening. i had to tilt the sledgehammer when it went in. i know this would be way bigger than that.

i just noticed this... the sub i have now is model (SWX 1242d) and the one i'm getting is (SWX 1243d). i think mine is a year or so older. this shouldnt matter, right?

the type x im trading you isnt a stranger to a seald box was ran in a seald box for a while had way better low end response but wasnt that loud to my ears like the ported but it deff got lower ...

tez4life
06-27-2008, 12:39 PM
I dont think so, unless the specs changed within that year you should be fine.


BTW, in order to run the (2) 15" box in my trunk, im going to have to omit my spare,:crap:

*****, but its the price you pay for what you enjoy.

jco1385
06-27-2008, 12:41 PM
i'll keep the spare. i'll show you. it will work out. ;) it's going to have to

my ported setup gets as low as i'll ever need to go.

zack39648
06-27-2008, 12:44 PM
just letting you know ported was way louder the seald just sounded better got lower ... i think ported is the best cause its what i kept it in after i built the box :)

SethPhillips
06-27-2008, 12:45 PM
yeah, i've always had ported. so i am biased.

anyone know what the space difference would be ported vs. sealed?

ported box's are generaly 2 time biger then a sealed box bru.

if you like the output of ur X ported.. your gunna be one sad fella when you hear 2 of them seald.

i know you love them x types...
but i had a customer with 2 x's ported, with two alpine 1000w amps.
he siad " **** i spent that mutch for this :furious:"

but whatever floats ur boat.

jco1385
06-27-2008, 12:45 PM
i'm willing to try sealed. esp if it saves some space.

no taller than 16", no wider than 35". depth is negotiable
