    DC level 3 12s..sealed vs ported, tuning Freq

    I just ordered 2 dc level 3 12s and they need about 1.75 cubes per driver. I'm wondering if anyone has heard these subs in a sealed box, and what frequency anyone with these subs has their box tuned to. I'm thinking of going ported with 1.7 cubes each (after displacement) and tuning to 32hz. Any recommendations/comments?

    I haven't messed with them personally, but the specs(if accurate) indicate that they can do rather well in either application.

    He first needs to puts the specs back up on his site, IMO.

    I'm just gonna go ported, and cut out something to stuff the port if I want. Best of both worlds.

    What about bandpass? Would these work in a bandpass enclosure ?

    Have you decided what enclosure you're going to go with?
