    Power Series like to be ported. So go ported. Don't be afriad to give them like 600WRMS each either, they will take it like a champ. So if they aren't loud enough, you can run power.

    .75sealed playing into 1.25ported...if the ported area is 1.25cubes after port displacement u looking at over 2 cubes external for 1 10...with 3 10's that 2.25cubes into 3.75 cubes ported...and thats all internal air space after port and sub displacement...so u looking at well over 7 cubes external for this box
    so i would do just 2 subs and talk to jbl about an optimum bandpass for 2
    or 3 subs ported..but still call to find out wat size they like for ported as well

    than its a tossup
    but i would do 1.25cubes ported for each cuz u dont have enuff space for a bandpass(for 3 subs)
    now if u do 2 subs..u can actually have each 10 in .75cubes sealed playing into a common 2.5cubes ported
    with 50sqaure inches of port...that will be loud

    Max power means nothing. It does not have to be twice the RMS power, hell it could be ten times the RMS. It is just a number that attracts n00bs to buy products...

    actually the 400rms is on continous music the 1200 max is for short term burst power
    i have installed the gti subs and they sound very clean and with the rite power get loud as well
