    Re: What kind of box is best for an SUV

    A ported box (not bandpass, slot ports or aero's) will give you the most output, and a low tune will get you the deep notes you want.

    A proper sealed enclosure will be able to play the lows as well, but you will lose a lot of output from it.

    And a bandpass enclosure will sound like garbage, unless properly designed, which is just too much work IMO. An ordinary slot vented enclosure can have just as much output as a bandpass, and will be much easier to construct.

    Re: What kind of box is best for an SUV

    I have ran many styles of boxs and so far I actualy like the sound of a good sealed box, it will get very low and hit nice and tight.

    With the ported sometimes it just didnt sound right on some songs or I heard port noise many little things, the sealed is not as loud but to me it personaly sounds good and still gets loud and low.

    Not doubting that is a good solution, but what makes that good? What is the acoustical advantages to having the subs on the top and port firing to the rear?

    Yea that is hard to say, just because I have a isuzu trooper and when i fire it up its not close to as loud as when I shoot to the rear. But my roof is higher than the s10 blazers as well so I dont know if thats what the diffrence is. The best thing to do is just build some boxs and find the one you like the best
