    Single Sub = Port or 2 Sealed? Diamond D6

    Opinions please.

    I was going to get 2 Diamond D6 Subs with 2 Diamond D5600 amps (I already have one sub and amp)

    Now, For what I am doing I only have physical room for one D6 in a ported box or 2 D6's in a sealed enclosure. Both getting their recommended amount of air.

    What do you think would sound best and get the most bass? Doing just 1 in a ported (dual ported actually) will save me about $400 and I have more to spend on sound deadening.

    Thanks

    I think those D6's sound pretty darn good ported in a well built enclosure. If i was you, i'd just stick with one and port it. Then deaden the **** out of your car, and i think you'll be satisfied. I used to have a Diamond M6 12" ported, and it got pretty **** loud and sounded good doing it.

    Good to hear. Im going from 2 infinity ref 12's that got fed 200w each. So anything is better. But I figure I save $400ish, life will be better.

    2 ported should be killer,but 1 ported would be louder than 2 sealed

    2 ported would blow my trunk lid off.... and the fact of my physical room, makes it hard

    1 should sound great, can you point me in the direction of a link that shows how to build vented boxes? Im still reading a lot on it, (8 sites still to read) but anyone in particular you found usefull?
