    sealed vs ported for sq that packs a punch for a single orion hcca 10.2

    I have a single orion HCCA 10.2 being pushed by a Fosgate T1500.1 BDCP
    I have it in a ported tuned to 45hz spl box now but cant play most music through it was wondering
    If I put it in a sealed and crank up my amp would it still hit with a punch?

    Those subs weren't really designed for sealed IIRC. Just do a lower tuned ported box. Maybe 32 hz or so.

    Ported. Allows for sub to "move" more easily for better response.

    Actually, sealed boxes have better response. Just an FYI.

    not if the sub has really stiff mechanical suspension.



    All day I'm clippin'
    voltage be dippin'
    I don't give a damn,
    cause my trunk always hittin'!

    creating a proper sound wave. Step one, turn it up until clipping. Step two, done.
