I am getting

2 x Alpine SWR-1241D (specs below) Powered by Soundstream VGA800.2 (Specs Below)

I will be wiring @ 2 Ohms RMS = 400 W each

In my searching it stated that I should build the box different from what the manufacture reccomends due to the increased wattage. However it does not state what would be ideal. What would be the ideal tunning freq? Should it be ported? Perferable I would like to keep the box simple with a sealed enclosure but if I can get better performance out of the Sub with ported than I will do it that way. Thanks for any help.

I listen to everything with rap being the most predominant
