I just built a large sealed box for my two 12's. I was wondering what i should do to get more bass. I heard that putting stuffing in makes it louder, but i also heard that i should make portholes for the top. Any suggestions for me?

adding poyfill will not make it louder, some say it cleans up muddy sounding bass, but I dont notice much of a difference. You can not usually just port a sealed box, it has to be designed for your subs, unless you made your sealed box to that size anyway. Check what size you need for your subs for a ported box from the manufacturer and go from there. Good luck

so would you guys recognize porting it then or stuffing it. If i would go with portholes where would i buy them? Thanks for your responses.

If you want to port use the recommended box and get tubing in the correct diameter and length otherwise your box will sound like ***... It will be far easier and cheaper to add polyfil available at any fabric/craft store. Use the info you have been given or don't it's your gear.

They are 12" pyramid hyper pros (yeah i know it's newbie stuff but its all i could afford till i get my contract) im not 100% certain on how big the box is. Im guessing its around 28-30" long and about 18" high. It was made for me as a gift so im not quite sure exactly.
