    Have a ported box, need another box. ported or sealed? add another? build one more?

    I have a single ported box, 1.0 but it's for a 12" and I made an adapter ring for it and it works great.

    I am getting a second clarion WQ2510D and I'm not sure how to box it.

    I would like a simple addon of a sealed box because that would be the easiest IMO and would give me best of both worlds

    Then if one fails I would still have bass.

    I would also like to make a custom box that fits behind the rear seats so I have my cargo area back and there isn't just a sloppy box thrown in the back.

    Any suggestions?

    Pic is current sub and box. (click image for full size)

    Whatever design you choose, the subs should share the enclosure.

    I planned on doing that because I want a custom box that fits the back seats and gives me my cargo space back.

    The airspace? I had a dual 12" old school audiobahn box that had each side sealed from each other and it sounded great. I like the idea of having bass even if one fails

    Why would one fail?

    Subs fail, it happens. Plus these subs will have a warranty for 4 years, so I won't exactly be babying them

    Because he has no respect for the gain knob or bass boost

    I do, actually. Never had a sub fail on me. But these subs I am buying will have a 4 year warranty and I don't "need" to care about them.

    They will sound different on the same tones, meaning it will sound like ****... I dont take it easy on my subs but they dont fail unless I want them to.. You have much to learn grasshopper, most warrenties dont cover burnt coils

    this is best buy 4 year protection plan.

    Besides, I push this sub to it's limits and it doesn't distort.

    I can't imagine how people don't notice the sub sounding like ****...

    The chat guy said it would cover blown subs..

    don't knock them just because they are from best buy.

    these are $100 with 4 year warranty for 500w rms, and the sub needs .5 sealed.

    They hit **** hard.

    I don't think you can find something as good as that all around.
