    2 sealed or 1 ported?

    I am debating between two 18's sealed, or 1 18 ported at 25-30hz

    Specifically we are talking about MJ 18's

    Which do you think will be louder (specifically from around 20-40hz)

    Any input appreciated, and again, looking for which you think will be louder, while maintaining decent quality.

    Fs of 30hz on the sub(s)

    What if I could put only ~400 to each sealed, vs putting ~800 to the ported one?

    rated rms on sub(s) ~600-700

    Thanks for the opinion, but it doesn't mean I wouldn't like to hear what others have to say...

    what????

    25 hertz is too low.

    then the 50 hz bass lines can't tingle up chicks necks

    so then they won't tell you that their necks hurt when they get out of the car

    tune at 32 hz................

    Yea I realize it won't cause as much of a peak, but I just really enjoy the 25-35hz range being very powerful
