    Little Help Please

    A buddy at work told me that a sealed box would be better for my L7's than a ported, which is what a want. He said because I have a suv it'd be better sealed since it wasn't a hatchback. I'm hesitent to believe him though. I guess i'd rather have more Spl than Sq but a mix of the two would be best.

    yeah...your buddy is kinda stupid.

    L7's in a ported enclosure will sound just fine.

    Ported is just what you want!

    Go back to your friend and kick him in his nuts, then rob him and buy anything you want!

    That's not all true! Though L7's can get very loud in the right enclosure, they are not that great in SQ! They can have some SQ in a large sealed box! They tend to be more of an SPL sub b/c of the lack of SQ!

    Most people that play with the L7 say even in ported boxes setup right they sound good. I'm not saying as good as an XXX, Brahma or W7, but still sound good.

    I am not speaking from experience though, I don't have, or never have had an L7.


    Still, I'd port it and let it pound
    Good luck!
