    Will Enclosure This Be Ok?

    I'm buying my first Subwoofer & Enclosure for my car. I was wondering if this Sealed Enclosure would be fine for it's purpose:

    Subzone Single 12" Sealed -1.13 cu ft-Enclosure -Angled Back- 3/4" MDF-HC12ss

    By the way... Here is the Subwoofer I am planning to put in that enclosure:

    JL Audio 12W3v2-2 12" 600W Dual 2-Ohm Subwoofer

    I would personally use a ported box. That is just my oppinion though. I think ported sounds better.

    It might be fine, but I'd get a custom so that you know what you're getting.

    Why do you say this? Could I possibly get something different than what I am expecting if I ordered the box in question?

    Custom boxes are better than prefab in most cases. With a custom box you know what to expect.

    ^^ Precisely. You wouldn't make a thread asking whether or not it will be good if you have a spec built enclosure.
