    Re: box ?

    really personal preference, but most likely ported.

    Like everyone said above me: It really is personal preference

    Read the SEALED vs PORTED sticky and see which appeals to you

    No matter what driver, in a correctly designed enclosure, either sealed or ported will work

    Re: box ?

    yea some people are saying sealed is better and other people are saying go ported but i want some sq but i want it to hit pretty good. i think i might go with ported. but if there is anyone out there that is really bored or just a hell of a nice guy, could u figure me up some box dimensions for free? just pm me if u want/or can for specs or w/e. thanks

    Re: box ?

    To be honest, I think you will be happy either way.

    Ported will definitely be louder, while sealed will yield better sq and tighter bass

    However, a low ported box (such as 32 hz) will still have good sq while getting impressively loud

    On the other hand, I can't imagien that dual sealed 12s would be quiet either...

    If you have the space for ported, I would reccomend a low ported box built to your subs specifications. If space is an issue, go with a correctly sized sealed box.

    Either way, I am sure you will be happy.
