    5-1/2" speaker box

    I'm making a set of speaker boxes for my rear components and wanted to know what type of enclosures I should make for them. I am most likely going to be using MDF. Should I seal the enclosure or ported?? And is it better if I make the enclosure bigger?

    By the way, they are Clarion 5.25" 170watt components. I'm placing them, facing forward close to the rear headrests.

    Thanks!

    3 - Voodoo digital capacitors

    hrmmm never heard of doing that.. but if your going to do it you can get MDF that is thinner than 3/4".. ohh and I would of course go sealed..

    Are you going to add a sub later?

    Ya I do have subs.. I have 3 12" fosgates in the trunk (custom fit), but I could barely hear my rear components because they face upward... So I want to build an enclosure to face them forward.

    So do you think I should make the smallest box possible for the components??

    Thanks
