    Icon14 12" kicker comp vr enclosure

    So this is my personal debate between myself. idk if i should go ported or sealed? I have a pair of the 03 cvrs i am stuck with. Only pair i can use right now. im looking to get alot of low end truck shaking base. i am wondering if i should build a ported or sealed enclosure. i know sealed is better sound quality, blah blah... these are the measurements i was looking to use for a sealed angled box. 24"tall, 50" wide, 5" top' 10" bottom which gave me like a 3.78 cu/ft box. If a ported box is better, what demensions (in those balpark area) should i use. thanks for the advice ahead tme.

    CVR's love ported like all Kicker subs except the solo classic. And if you can get fit that big of a sealed box in your truck you can definitely go ported.

    Wrong guy to ask for box specs. Lol! There's a bunch of guys that will help you out though. I know I usually like my stuff tuned lower. 32-35. I've had 2 CVR's. had em' on only 600 rms and they got pretty loud.

    It will depend on what kind of room you have behind that seat. If you can get enough volume while still be ok to drive then you can do ported. If not..then you are stuck with sealed.

    Well like I saaid with those specs, I get a 3.78 cube box. Planning on putting in a divider so they both have own airspace.
