    1 Sealed 1 Ported

    Would it be dumb to have two of the same subs and have one ported and one sealed?

    I'm looking for SQL and don't have a lot of room to work with. The subs are 8" Kicker Comps (not VR)

    I guess I should have said that my current install is both 8s in a shared chamber 1cube and it doesn't quite have the volume I'm looking for.

    if you made one sealed and one ported i am assuing there would be cancelation of some sort which is not good i.e. probably less output then you allready have. If you want SQL maked a ported box and tune that ish low

    you know, as stupid as this idea sounds, i will have to admit, i was thinking the exact same thing the other day. i wasnt really gonna do it, i was just curious what it would sound like, whether or not their would be cancellation or not. hmmm...anyone ever tried it before?

    Re: 1 Sealed 1 Ported

    Would there be any problem sharing the chamber with a ported box? If I remake my box/es I'm going to try with some fiberglass so I don't want to have to make two boxes with fiberglass and try to port them both the same correctly
