    Fi Q 12s in Small Sealed Box

    I am finding several references to Fi Q subs in ported boxes, but how would a pair of 12s do in a small sealed box on about 1500w? Anyone not using a ported box on your FI subs?

    subs here

    Debating on a pair of either 10s or 12s...

    I preferred the Q's sealed, by far.

    Order them with the copper coils, and they'll be fine

    Do you think I could really get away with a .6 cu ft box for the 10s?

    .6cF for both?

    It falls within the recommended range...although personally I'm a fan of enclosures on the high end of things...could always put polyfill in it if initially it sounds a bit "peaky".

    Re: Fi Q 12s in Small Sealed Box

    I was thinking .6 per, or 1.2 - 1.5 for a pair of 10s. For a pair of 12s that would be 3.0+... I think I am leaning toward the 10s since the box size is smaller and I assume they still pack a good punch. Much appreciated JimJ...
