    I wanna eat my cake to

    ok , this my first thread so take it easy on me.
    ok im new to building boxes and all i have a 89 accord its my only ride at the moment so i need the trunk from time to time. So what i want to do is build a box to fix at the very end of my trunk. See this is the problem i change my mind alot and i cant choose what i want a sealed or ported. so then it struck my why not have both ported and sealed all in one. Before you guys say something i know the differenence between ported and sealed this is where i think my genius comes in. why not have a hatched port technically i just have to figure out how to install a little actuater or something to the hatch and put it in the port ? once i figure this out then i have sealed box and when i want the it to sound different then ill oppen the ports and then im good?
    in theroy this should work
    right?

    i might go with 1 12 in sub, which i havent descided on yet im still reasearching and with the box i am going to put a port plug. something that will fit tight, then some how mount the actuaters in the box with out it being in the port it self. im still workin out the ideas in my head. tommerow i am going to get some measurments and picts of my trunk and possiably a drawing of what im imagining it to be. i just need any opinions and ideas thanks

    Re: I wanna eat my cake to

    what you wanna try to do is get an alpine type r 12" and try to port at around 3.5^3 feet. that would be the ideal setup to have. if you bough an orion 1200d to go with it that would be perfect. i guarantee you that you will have the loudest setup out of all of your friend. if you wanna be loud, take my advice.

    Re: I wanna eat my cake to

    The problem with a simple port plug is that the proper ported box is often much larger than the proper sealed box. Personally I'd just go sealed and port it if it's not loud enough for you....

    If you listen to anything that is mostly beats go ported... and DEFINATELY do the trunk. Get the sound deadner from either www.secondskinaudio.com which has the BEST or get some from www.raamaudio.com which is the best DEAL.... ohh and don't forget to do the back of the license plate.. liquid sound deadner works well for that...

    fart cannons and rattling trunks **** me off too... that and people with those **** $100 pair of 12's by dual....

    The power rating on a deck means basically nothing. Any proper stereo has an amplifier on all channels. So as long as it has 3 preouts I think you'll be ok for now... however amp choice and sub choice will be much more important at this stage... DO NOT... I repeat DO NOT buy a junk amp or sub... nothing made by dual/pyle/lightning audio etc...
