I have two 12 idmax in a sealed box Running off a sae 1200d in the trunk of my car.. I want to seal them off from the trunk like the pic below.. I don't want any trunk rattle I feel its just wasted energy, id rather have all the sound coming into the cab. my question is on sound quality, will it effect ?

then it shouldnt affect out put too much just make sure that the plexi is a few in away from the sub faces and make sure that nothing is loose on your rear deck
vent in rear deck would also help get sound into cabin

No, 1200 isnt really enough for two Max's.

OP, Just face the subs forward..

600 is enough power for idmax's however more power never hurts :D these are very efficient subs though

i currently only have one of my max's installed and i have it in a ported box tuned to 29hz and have around 800 watts going to it. I find that it gets too loud this way. When i actually get around to installing the second one i plan to seal them though. i havent heard them in a sealed box yet however from what i have read the sq is incredible. I have actually toyed around with the idea of going ib with them, which in that case 600 per sub would def be enough.
