    power hx2 12" vs xxx 12"

    since the search makes it difficult to search 3 letter words, i guess ill just ask here...

    i have a power hx2 12 and was considering buying a xxx if it's going to be louder in a sealed enclosure. would i notice any difference in SPL or SQ or both between these 2 in a sealed 1 cu ft box?

    i will be using a JBL 1200.1 to power the xxx (if i decide to get one)

    thanks

    I don't think many would agree with putting a XXX in a 1 cu ft box sealed. Maybe a ED K

    if you want louder, give that power hx 2 a good 2.2 cubic ft ported box tuned to about 35hz... Building a new box is waaaaay cheaper than buying a new sub

    WEll i actually think u would notice a lesser difference..Cause the xxx does rather bad in low air-spaced enclosures! if I were u I would design a new box for the RF hx-2..Try porting it, etc...Your gonna waste your money by placing the xxx in a 1ft3 box

    the money wasnt really an issue because i can sell it for twice the amount i paid for it, but if there's not going to be too much of a difference, i might just sell the power hx2 and get another one.
