    Got .95cf, should I go 10"ported or 12"sealed?

    Hi there, I have a .95 cf box.

    What will sound louder and hit the low notes better, a 10" ported or a 12"sealed given for example the same subwoofer line?


    THX in advance

    i don't think .95 is big enough to port even with a ten inch driver.

    10's will hit the higher notes better

    That is a misconception.

    For .95 I would prefer a 12 sealed.

    I have an almost new 12" TC7. Have heard that they do great in a sealed box

    For that size your best bet would def be 12 sealed, you just dont have enough room to fit a ported box. You may wanna look into shallow mount subs to take up least amount of box space.

    8's would hit the highs even better, but if you want really better highs use tweeters

    I liked the way my 8"s perform. You could easily seal two in .95ft^3.
