    2 Eclipse sw8200 12s

    Ported or sealed? I had them in a sealed box and was not pleased. The internal volume was 1.5 ft per sub. So im thinking ported. The box is going in a 4 door blazer. If ported what should i port it to? I have a jl 500/1 powering each sub. I listen to mixture of music. Mostly hip hop though. Please help

    they work ported....











    as to exactly what they need I don't know, nothing in a subwoofer makes it unable to be ported. I would run them 4th ordered though. 2 12's in a blazer fit's 4th order.



    I am protesting Skar by giving them added exposure in my signature.

    audiophil told me they should be run ported at all...they do not make good ported woofers.....something about the qts and qms being way out there....
