    Re: bandpass????

    First off what sub is it? Secondly bandpass *****, they sound like ****. Get a vented box.

    Oh and chrome ports add about 6db and if you have flames etched on the glass that is another 3db.



    Current setup...
    Infinity 6.5s
    Infinity 6x9s
    Alpine Car Alarm for $14.00 installed (Workin at CC)

    Future Mods:
    Alpine 9825
    Speakers
    Some Amps
    More subs than my car can handle (Four)
    Hydraulics on a Stratus? Sure why not...

    correction: spinning chrome sub grills are needed for the full 3 db increase.

    Re: bandpass????

    If built right they can sound good and get loud. Premanf. bandpasses **** and are worthless peices of junk. Considering the world record right now i belive is held by a person that uses a band pass style box...id refrain from calling them ******.
