    Compare these two boxes....

    Would 1.8 cubes @30Hz be as musical and punchy as 1.5 cubes sealed. Compare the two please. I can't decide which way to go...

    I'm guessing it's for a 12'' Q?

    for the Q, i would personally go with the ported 1.8 @ 30Hz, it will still have good punch to it, and it will most liely hit deeper, and louder aswell.

    Re: Compare these two boxes....

    yeah, it's for the Q.....I'm just trying to figure out which way to go. I want the most bang for my buck without having to sacrifice too much trunk space. This is the first car I've had in a while and I'm used to SUV's with unlimited room.

    You will not be disapointed with the ported box. Just let me know which on you decide on and then I can start building it for ya.

    Oh also did you check to make sure you had plenty of room for you stroller and etc?

    Re: Compare these two boxes....

    A ported box will never hit "lower" than a sealed box. Tuning that low just over-emphasizes the low end giving the effect of a louder low end.

    Either way, you'll probably appreciate the extra output from the ported and won't miss the loss in SQ from the sealed.
