    What is the best box for me?

    Right now I am running two 12'' subs out of a sealed box and it does not sound good to me at all. I liten to mostly rap/hip hop. What would be the best kind of box for me, bandpass, ported, or sealed?

    it would be alot easier to tell you what kinda subs you have along with the specs of the box they are in

    I just have a couple cheap Ma Audio 12'' subs(350w RMS). My first system, I am on a limited budget. I don't know the specs of my box, I am new to this whole car audio thing

    4 cubes tuned to 34-35 hz should make you happy
