    The one that works best for your application.


    The install, products, and desired goal plays a huge roll....in the end only testing can really tell you the answer you seek.

    Re: Which type of enclosure is the loudest, spl wise?

    well I am going to building a few boxes and don't want to waste to much money building a bunch of boxes to test. I have 4 sa8v2's and want to have a box I can use just for comps. I was told build a box about 2ft^3 with external 4 4" aero's or 2 6" aeros. I am going to try that but wanted a few more ideas on other boxes that could also work well...

    I'd post up car, amps, subs, batteries.. Everything here and I'd bet someone will be able to get you an educated guess.
    @mylows10 ; does this regularly. Maybe can help.

    Like rabbit said every car truck is different. For your setup I'd try a small ported burp box first easy to build and cheap
