    1 15 ported or 2 15 sealed ???

    i wanna run a 15 sx with a ed 9.1
    when i was in my local shop the guy told me it would be better if i went with 2 15 sealed instead of one ported both getting the same rms 1 15 @ 1200rms ported and 2 15 @ 1200 rms sealed he said because of more cone area, and also will sound better and get louder. now i know he wasn't trying to sell me anything becasue he cant get re and i told him what i was getting. so what should i do. the ported box will be about 40x15.5x19 and the sealed would be the same (holding 2 of course)

    I would go ported.....those things get very low and loud.


    plus...I like single sub setups.

    had mines in a 3.14 vented box tuned to 29.5 hz......it was too much for me!

    I listen to rap/hip hop music at times....the SX is built for this music!


    I prefer SQL though.....
