First off what sub is it? Secondly bandpass *****, they sound like ****. Get a vented box.

Oh and chrome ports add about 6db and if you have flames etched on the glass that is another 3db.

correction: spinning chrome sub grills are needed for the full 3 db increase.

If built right they can sound good and get loud. Premanf. bandpasses **** and are worthless peices of junk. Considering the world record right now i belive is held by a person that uses a band pass style box...id refrain from calling them ******.
