View Full Version : questions about sealed, with some 8s

03-22-2009, 07:39 AM
I've never had a sealed box before, I'm gonna put one in my dakota since there's not much room at all, with 4 8s I think. I only have maybe 48" wide, like 30" height, and like 7" width at the bottom and 2" width at the top of the seat. Should be good for at least 2.5 maybe 3 cubes gross.

Do sealed boxes play all notes or how does that work, since there is no "tuning" or port

Sealed boxes generally don't have the low end output of ported enclosures. But I can tell you, trying to fit a decent ported box in dimensions like that will be absolute hell. Go with sealed.

i think smaller boxes will make it more punchy and peak higher and bigger boxes are more boomy and play lows better

sometimes bigger box is more }punchy"

i would port 2 8's to the passenger side with 2 4 inch aero's.

edit: i would do 3 inch, if they are actually flared aero's. with plain pvc, i would do 4 inch.
