    kenwoods....ported or sealed?

    ok im doing an install for a friend. i've put in their cd player and front speakers already. now its time for the subs. i ordered a jbl 300.1 for 2 12" kenwoods that he bought at best buy. should i port the kenwoods? im putting them in a 1 cubic ft per sub box that i made if i port them should i put the ports on the sides of the box or on the back? does anyone have any experiece with porting kenwoods. they're the new silver ones 175 watts rms 700 max. thanks guys

    give me some advice on what u guys would do with this stuff

    best thing to do is bring the subs back... they blow real quick... i had them in a ported box and it was ok... wasnt anything to brag bout either. try a sealed box, then cut a port wherever you have room, prefferably where the subs are (on the same side), then decide which is better and make the adjustments.... probably the sealed will be better for it.

    well i made the box deep so it is shorter and not as wide so i dont think i can fit ports on the front side.. i think ill just leave it sealed for awhile and if i get some time to mess with it ill make it ported.

    i was tryin to talk him into selling the kenwoods and buying kicker comp for like 110 online. but the kenwoods have a best buy warranty so id be easier if we blow em

    when i first started out i bought a kenwood 10" sub like 2 years ago and i had a kenwood 300 watt rms 600 max amp runnin to it and it never blew or anything i was surprised now when i look back on that subs specs and its only 125 watts rms. and that thing took a beating
