    Infinity Reference 1230W???

    hello everyone, i just have a question about my infinity 1230's i had just purchased these subs and found that i don't have enough room for a ported enclosure, i was just wondering if Sealed would sound good too,, i listen to mainly rap, Hiphop, R&B and some alernative music..

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Twistid: Shut up.

    thuggish: you'll be able to know the lows are there, they just won't chatter your teeth like a low tuned ported enclosure would. Personally, I'd take a ported box that's slightly too small, rather than a sealed that's properly sized.

    they sound good in sealed I have 2 in my burban powered by a hifonics 1000 watt amp. he is right they don't get that low but you will hear the lows but the mid bass is where they excel.

    Re: Infinity Reference 1230W???

    okay again, thanks for the replies, i can always try both enclosures, or even try to make a custom fit enclosure. I do want the lows because of the music i listen to, but i'am not sure if ported will give a little kick or not, really i have never heard anything in a ported enclosure, i only have used sealed in the past.

    build a 3 cube ported enclosure tuned to 30htz... i know you can fit that and it'll slam decently and sound real good
