So I've put a decent system in the ride and have been loving it for the last couple of months but I'm wondering if I could squeeze more goodness out of my sub? I have a Dayton Audio RSS315HO-44 12" Reference HO DVC Subwoofer 295-467 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=295-467) in this box: Sonic Sub Boxes 1H12-0.7-BLACK (1h1207-black) Single 12" (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_24443_Sonic-Sub-Box-1H12-0.7-Black.html) powered by a PPI i650.1 and it sounds great but I was wondering if I would get more out of a custom box. I want to stay small and I want to stay sealed. Am I good to go with what I have or could I do better SQ wise with a custom box?

Thanks gents-

If you aren't willing to go with a ported enclosure, keep what you have. The only way to change a sealed box is to make it larger and that will only lower its frequency response a bit.

And if all you want is lower extension with no more loudness, order a bag of acousta stuff from Parts Express and shove it in there.
