    Small Box CC wants 2 in Port??

    Ok so i went to CC today and I met this new installer that just moved from callifornia or somewhere and he said that he trained with Mad Mike from pimp my ride....and anyways he looked at my setup and he gave me some suggestions like raise the box off of the ground so the woofers wont hit the ground......the major suggestion was he wanted to cut 2 in tall slots on the side of the box (a slot from front to back 2in tall) if you view my profile a pic of my box should be there...do you think i should do this.....I have .75 cu ft of air space and it is so small because it has to fit under the rear seat....do you guys think i should cut the slots on both sides????



    Setup:
    1 - Fi Bl 18'' with Flat Wind and Full Cooling (dual 2 ohm)
    1 - Hifonics BXI1606d running at 1 ohm
    1 - e2 E1000 by Scosche (wiring kit)
    1- Custom build 7.0cuft box at 35hz

    You don't make sealed boxes into ported boxes. You build a ported box. You can make a ported into a sealed easily, but not the other way around.

    That is if you don't use round ports.
