    Icon30 To Port, Or Not To Port

    Thinking about throwing 2 of these in my sealed box http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=268-352
    My box is about 4 or 5 cubic feet canít remember exactly how big it is right now, I built it few months ago, and donít remember. Do you think this will sound good? I will probably tune it to around 25-28hz, but I donít know if box is big enough for it to sound good.
    This is for an atlas 15, running of rythmik audio 250 plate amp. For my computer.

    Re: To Port, Or Not To Port

    Ok so i ported it, tunned it low to 24hz. i bought 2 ports, but decided just to put 1 in.
    its a little louder, but its alot deeper base, i love it. I think it sounds alot better, definitly glad i ported it, best $15 upgrade.
