Hey guys just received my Sundown E12 in the mail its the second version 500 watts rms.. Anyway right now I have a junk MTX Terminator Subwoofer thats 200 rms which im running on an Alpine MRV-M500 @ 4 ohms in a sealed box. Obviously not the best! So I bought this subwoofer but I cant get a clear answer and I know its preference but hopefully someone can talk me into a box. I WILL NOT BUILD A BOX NOR HAVE SOMEONE ELSE BUILD ME A BOX. Okay guys? Ive heard it all I know I get it its a $100 sub im not tryin to hit high spl's or perfect sq im 16 and barely have money yes I know how much mdf costs. Anyway I like loud but responsive bass all I listen to is Decaf, A little Dubstep, But mostly Rap. So basically I know with the new woofer its already going to sound better naturally better design waaay better materials but I want it to be louder thats the whole point of upgrading so I have sealed I like sealed. But I want it to be louder and still sound good so I will post 2 links below one is a sealed box one is ported they mach the cu ft I need for the woofer. You tell me what I should get and why ! :) Thanks for any help !!!!

If sub can be wired to two ohms (I don't know what the voice coils are on your sub)then either box would sound good.at least a lot better than mtx did.if I had to choose an enclosure id go with the ...

It can be wired to 2 ohms. And what would you go with ?

Two ohms would get the most out of the amp you have.if I had to choose one id go with the sealed and might consider using a little polyfil.

Use the ported enclosure. Sealed boxes aren't as loud and don't have the low end response that even that prefab will have.

Stupid kid save up a few more weeks and buy a mobiledoundworks.com prefab ported box theyre so much better and worth the little bit extra
