    For the reason you state you want sealed, you need to use 1 12" sub, or 2 10" subs ported. another suggestion is, when you can, you need to take 1 sub in a small enclosure and try different positions, sub back, sub forward, corner loaded, etc. to find what positioning is the best for your car. Cancellations can be a ***** after you spend a ton of dough and install a custom box...especially if you install for looks instead of performance. Sub/port placement in the vehicle is the primary concern, if you want the most out of whatever you get. Just having the box loaded the wrong way can cost you 10+ db in output. In other words, 500 watts on the right set up can possibly out perform 2000 watts on the wrong set up.
