    enclosure for atlas's

    So I am planning on getting two 12" Atlas's (these)

    and I would like to make them louder than my old 12" Type R's (the ones rated at 350 rms) which are powered by a nine.1 and each have 1 cu.ft.

    how big should my box be and should i go ported? i still want better sq than my type r's so how should I achieve this?



    A couple of hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead? There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: "OK, now what?"

    i've heard that the type rs are some pretty sq oriented subs, so beating your type rs in sq with your avalanche maybe be best approched with a sealed box. however, a ported box tuned low can sound very nice, and may sufficiently fulfill your sq tastes. but like always, it depends on your taste in sound.

    Hmm. Post says Atlas, but link takes me to Shiva???

    If it is for the Atlas, try 2 cubes sealed each, mid Q setting on the second VC.
