    Image Dynamics IDMax recommended ported or sealed?

    I picked up a few IDMaxs (looking mainly to sell them but might keep 1...maybe 2) what would be the recommended enclosure? ported or sealed?

    I want this to be mainly sound quality, as im not going to be participating in any spl competitions and if anybody had some box plans that would be great. I drive a 2001 Jetta GLS with a 13 cubic foot trunk, so size really isnt a problem although I would like to retain much of my trunk if possible.

    Would 2 of these subs hit much harder than 1? I really wouldnt care about the change in volume as im sure they would already be pretty loud, but would 2 be deeper than 1?

    hmmm even if u want sq id still go in a nice low ported box......just port it low and imo it would sound better then sealed......if they are 10" dual 2ohms then ill take em off ur hands!

    Go infinite baffle

    Otherwise, go sealed.

    But infinite baffle would be the best way to go

    Would 2 of these subs hit much harder than 1? I really wouldnt care about the change in volume as im sure they would already be pretty loud, but would 2 be deeper than 1?
    Assuming you likewise doubled your power, you'd get about a 6db gain.....which yes, would mean more output at lower frequencies (more deeper bass)

    Re: Image Dynamics IDMax recommended ported or sealed?

    I highly doubt I could get a 13 cubic foot box in my jetta you're correct, I was merely stating that my trunk is 13 cubic feet and it could probably house a large box (13 cubic feet is an extremely large for a sedan). Is there anyway to go infinite baffle without permanetley modifying my car?
