    thats odd they recomend a smaller ported box than sealed, but anyway, ide say go ported, use their recomended box, and tune low, ull get some good SQ and it will get loud like ya want.

    well tuning lower will give u more SQ along with letting the lower music frequencies play out, while higher tuning will peak at higher frequencies and tend to not go as low.
