    sealed: just like it sounds...a completely sealed box for a subwoofer. most subs sound really good in sealed boxes

    ported: a box that has openings in it, also known as ports. they can be slot ports or circular ports...mainly for getting loud, but can sound good.

    bandpass: can sound good if they are built right, but usually arent all that great. they are hard to build right.

    here are some examples...
    sealed: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=14945

    ported: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=14945

    bandpass:

    well...you could build it yourself if you have tools and stuff. if not, you probably wont be able to find a pre-made online that will be the right size.

    private message dreid on these forums...he will give you an estimate. probaby around 75
