    1 sub ported or 2 sealed?

    i've had 2 american bass dx-15s sealed for the longest time now. At the moment they're both in 2 cubic foot boxes sealed, i've got roughly 10 cu feet to work with so if i were to put just one of them in a 10 cu ft box ported would it be better spl wise compared to both sealed like they are?

    yea it's a little much for one 15, but i think it'd need at least 6' cubed so i figured to go all out with the 10
