    Re: to port or not

    porting - decreased sq, increased in spl, larger box

    sealed - increased sq, decreased spl, smaller box

    some subs sound good ported and were almost meant to be and then there are the ones that just sound like ****. its all personal preferance

    i wanna go ported when i get a chance, time, and cash for the wood

    Then you obviously dont know what true sound quality is. So you would probably benifit more from a ported box.

    Re: to port or not

    I had 2 12" L7's with 2 jl 500/1's. I had them sealed and hated them. HATED THEM. Then i got them ported and they sounded real good. All preference to ear, but mine hit a lot harder in a 6cu ft ported box
