    spl competitors using sealed boxes

    are there any true spl competitors that use sealed boxes anymore? Just wondering. if so why sealed?

    I ask because I was considering doing 2 15's in my trunk but they'd have to be sealed and that to me just seems absurd for spl competition whenever i get back to doing them

    no space for ported without the box being too small or the port being too small

    Re: spl competitors using sealed boxes

    back in the mid 90's i used to compete with 6 JL 15's W0's sealed in a 1991 camaro doing high 140's.the differences that i know about are
    sealed = more power handling and tighter response
    ported = +3DB and boomier lows

    Re: spl competitors using sealed boxes

    You'd have to have an azz load of subs, or find a sub that has retarded useable xmax and power handling to pull that off. The efficiency just isn't there in a sealed box to pull that off unless you did a wall of subs.
    I like the sound of sealed better than ported, but it just takes too much power/subs/money to get the same output that ported gives me, so I have to sacrifice somewhere

    2 12"s ported instead of 15"s an option?



    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    The answer to his question is here.
    Sealed enclosures are for SQ. not output...
    What about 1 18' ported? off 4000wrms?

    Many of the loudest Bassrace and Bassboxing cars have sealed boxes.

    Re: spl competitors using sealed boxes

    2 15's sealed in a trunk just isn't worth it. You would be MUCH better off doing 2 12's ported.
