    id oems free air or sealed?

    getting ready to install 2 sets and thinking if i should seal the pods I make or open them to the door. My doors are heavily sound proofed and all holes are covered with FG panels. If i seal it I could put more power to them but i have heard them at 45-50 watts free air and that is the level they sound best at to me. If any one has sealed them what volume of air space have you given them?



    O my liver!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
