    Are you planning to do the rest of the installation yourself?

    When considering sealed vs ported, you have to determine how much trunk space you are willing to sacrifice. If you could go measure the maximum dimensions you can dedicate to the subwoofer (plus a couple extra inches on the plane which the sub is mounted, so it is not firing into your groceries/golfclubs), then we can give you better advice.
    DEFINITELY right here. The local shop here was very highly rated, yet they told me one of my subs was blown and I should buy one of their super-over priced ones.... Said sub wasn't blown.

    It really is ridiculous, just one of those industries I suppose...
    This will be slightly off topic, but OP should appreciate the implication.
    The best local shop (4.5 rating on Yelp, magazine featured installs, etc...) 1) Wired a friend's sub amp RCA's to deck's rear pre-outs 2) Insists that fusing should be done based on load, not wire gauge 3) Explained to me that you can have too BIG of power wire, providing the analogy of an oversized exhaust on a naturally aspirated engine causing a loss of back pressure and hence less power. He was told this by the "Michael Jordan" of car audio.
