    Every time I have used the same sub in different boxes such as sealed and different ported boxes I have noticed a difference. So yes.

    Re: ported,huge difference?

    yep ported does make a huge difference. Also depending on the car, different cars get louder than others, for example hatchbacks etc... or slant back suv's such as a blazer. These cars are notorious for getting loud with little power. My friend has a small hatchback neo with 1 10" sub ported on about 500 watts, and i know guy thats has 2 15's on about 1200 watts and they sound almost identical because the difference in the cars.

    If you want more air to be push plus a bigger box than for sheer bang probably the best bet.My system is of high quality my box is not to big and it is sealed,and it hits pretty hard for a sealed box.

    Yeah i think people should get the stereo for their enjoyment too, but i think most people get them just to wang so other people can hear them.

    Proto - Then they whine like baby's when they are heard, And followed for blocks only to wake up the next day missing thier whole set-up.

    7ender - Id be happier ported as well, However i just cant seem to get 7 cubes plus post and sub displacment in the trunk of my car.

    forget the enclosure and just mount the subs to the roof of the vehicle. You will be heard from blocks away and have mad steet cred and be the hero of the stupid

    Once you get over the age of 18 or so, the appeal of that disappears.

    I have no problem cranking it up, but "showing off" to me means they're sitting in the driver's seat and listening to more than just bass
