    4-5 cubes sealed is what I would do for that sub.

    Go with the 10" instead. Smaller subs hit faster and punchier, you know.
    Please don't listen to me.

    I've tried 10s its what I'm running now and they just ain't cutting it for me so I decided the 18" Q bc I heard it has really fast response from all the reviews, and I'll get plenty of spl just trying to decide on the box

    Re: Need box for fast bass response

    Go with the smaller recommendations and tune low for faster response... and larger for a more bottom heavy sound.



    Alpine CDA-9887 - PG Xenon 100.4 - PG Xenon 600.1 - IDQ10V3(1.3cft. @ 28hz) - Polk SR6501 mids - Seas Neo's - Knuconceptz - RAAMAudio

    Squid, since you obviously didn't see the line under my comment about the 10's, I was completely kidding with you. Cone size has nothing to do with how "quick" a speaker is. That seems to be the general consensus though, and I really don't know why.

    Ok. While this may not be literally true, the type of person who is looking for a "faster response" is usually looking for better sound quality... hence my suggestion for a low tuning frequency.

    low tuning = faster response? I don't get that, dd's tuned at 40hz hit double kicks with the best of em. (even if they sound like poo elsewhere)

    Re: Need box for fast bass response

    I usually associate a "fester" response as something that has to do with transient response and group delay. Tuning lower will definitely help in both of those categories, as well as making the enclosure smaller. The thing with this sub is that I wouldn't run it ported if I wanted those qualities.

    If I wanted a lot of low end, quick transients, and low group delay, I would definitely seal it.
