So I have a chance to grab a barely used 10" Fi-Q from a local guy for a good deal and was wondering what's everyone's opinion on running these sealed or ported?

Sealed I was thinking 1.0 cubes sealed or 1.5 ported @33hz. If I do go ported, I would like to go aero just to try it out.


Any ideas?

Sub is D2 and will be run at 1 ohm off my AQ1200. Car is a 2001 Acura TL

depends on what type of bass you like, tight any punchy *sq* or louder and lacking in sq. however, the fi q will sound pretty good either way, so i'd port it

i really like a mixture of both. How much louder would it be in a ported enclosure?

you don't lose sq in a properly built low tuned ported enclosure. Do you know what options the sub has? If it's the high QTS model I wouldn't go ported and if it's the low QTS model I would port it and tune low 27-32 range

pretty sure it's the low qts version, but I'll ask the guy to make sure.

Anyone can draw me up some box plans for a box 1.5^3 aero port tuned to 32hz?

Well just talked to the guy and he said it's the HIGH QTS version with no options.

So sealed? What size does everyone recommend?

You'll want to go sealed then and if it's a newer model Q Fi recommends around .5 cubes. If it is the older model I'm not sure
