Just wanna make a quick sealed box to get some kind of bass going again. Anyone ever experiment with these subs in sealed boxes and know how much volume would be substantial? Its a 12.

Running it on a 5 channel, does like 380 @ 4ohm but i got it running at 1 so maybe around 500-600? I ended up making it to like 1.75 iirc, no fill yet still sounds good

I don't agree with using fill.

Glad it work out for you, I'm sure it won't be long until your building a ported enclosure for it lol.

Why use any fill? It is not required if the enclosure is correct.

To stop standing waves from muddying up the sound, it is needed even if box is ''correct'' size. Fill is not to make the enclosure seem larger to the subwoofer that is just a by product you have to account for when using it.

I'm well aware of what that. However, I have never seen it actually make any difference. I have judged and built many SQ cars and never seen/heard/found the difference. In a rare case you may, but less likely then most will think.
