    ported or sealed?

    i dont really want to put my CVR's into a sealed enclosure but i'm afraid my trunk is too small to fit a GOOD ported enclosure into it. i was wondering if CVR's sound good in a sealed enclosure. thanks.

    Yes, they sound a-ok in a sealed enclosure, but they really shine in a ported one. I had 3 10" CVRs in a sealed box, and then put em in a ported box, and the diff was incredible.

    Re: ported or sealed?

    yea, im really disappointed that i might not be able to use a ported enclosure due to the small trunk opening. i will see what vitveet can whip up for me then i will see what i can do.

    how much air space do you think i should have for each CVR? i have 2 12"

    are you sure those are the measurements? i used the RE enclosure calculator, not sure how accurate it is but it doesn't come out to that.

    and i can't fit that into my trunk in one piece.
    max measurements are 37.5" W x 15.5" H x 16" D

    Re: ported or sealed?

    or, i can have 2 separate enclosures each facing each other by the tail lights instead of by the rear seats. do you think thats a good idea? because with that, i think i can get a better fit and is easier for me to make sure the measurements are right. do yall think that's a good idea?

    max dimensions to fit enclosure into trunk in one piece is 37" W x 15.25" H x 16" D
    im not entirely sure about the depth because im not sure how to measure it, bottom of trunk opening to the trunk floor?
