View Full Version : Ported Or Sealed Enclosure???

11-13-2008, 08:39 PM
I'm still up in the air on whether I should run a ported or sealed enclosure for a Solobaric S12L7 for my 01 Mustang Cobra?

I dont have much trunk space, but I'm pretty sure i can fit a 2 cu ft ported box for my S12L7 subwoofer. Dimensions (H x D x W) = 13.5" x 16.0" x 30"

Or should i go with a sealed box for the same 2 cu ft?

what would sound better for me? into hiphop, rap, reggaeton, ect music :confused:

thanks! :):):)

Thanks! now i know that kicker suggests a ported box from 1.75 - 3.25 cu ft for its L7 12".....but the box i would get for it is on the smaller size, 2 cu ft. Do you think it will still hit hard and low?

Also, what about having 2 L7's in a sealed box vs 1 L7 in that same 2 cu ft ported box.....which do you think will hit best?

I've never liked l7's sealed personally (not that they're much better ported, though they do get loud if installed right), but theoretically if you have 2 subs vs. 1 and double the power, the 2 will be louder. If i was gonna run a single l7 ported, i would go 2.25 cubes tuned to 32... just my $.02

thanks for ur $.02 lol Trust me, Ive been lookin for a 2.25-2.50 cu ft box myself....i may just have to have someone build it custom.....but then that gets pricey!

The 2 cu ft one i found on ebay is $119 shipped and its 3/4" mdf....and the front is double that!
