    Help with ported box PLEASE!!!

    alright I think i've found a box to get the full spl potential out of my kicker. right now its in 1.2 cu ft sealed box. on ebay there is 6 cu ft boxes with .45 cu ft vent slot. It has 5yr warranty and is sold by PNA Audio. Appears to be good quality but my concern is if it is tuned correctly for my 12" Kicker L7. Can anyone point me in the right direction here? PLEASE help. I dont want to spend a whole lot gettin my system to sound better. BTW WILL the sub still be accurate? As accurate as it is now? SQ wont go down TOO much will it? thank you in advance!

    Re: Help with ported box PLEASE!!!

    the recommended ported box volume for my kicker is 3.25 cu ft...........but since its tuned low (or we think so) it should still have ok SQ right? And TREMENDOUS spl.................as long as the steady bass drums from say a metallica song play clear, then i'm happy! i dont listen to rap or hip hop alot.
