    ported or sealed for 15" xxx

    I have a question for you all? What would you recommend, a ported or sealed box for a 15" xxx?

    matters what you are going for. Seeing how the XXX is a SQL driver, you can go sealed for real tight quality bass, or go ported to have a mix for loudness, and quality. personally, id go for ported.

    I believe he was doing something that is commonly refered to as, "kidding around".

    How big of a ported box are you going with? And what do you intend on tuning it to?

    4 cubes tuned to 34 hz would be a great box that has pretty good quality with the ability to get loud.
