Hey, i've got a q-logics box right now, but i dont think its big enough for the shiva that im getting, im looking for it to sound very good, but also get somewhat loud when i need it to. Im planning on building a new one, so should it be sealed? or ported and what kinda size would you think, i have a civic, so there really isn't much room, plus i dont want to take up much room, thanks

1.25ft^3 sealed is according to many the "magic" number.

Personally, I dropped that to 1.0ft^3 sealed with my shiva, and am liking that a lot better.

Overall response seems to be improved and less sloppy.

For your indicated 75% SQ and 25% SPL - I'd reccomend giving this method a try.

take it easy,

Zane, what do you recommend for the SQ enthusiast competing, but looking to go ported to boost the SPL facotr up a bit, but still have good SQ ... I assume tuning in the low-mid 20's, but what do you recommend for the box size and tuning?
