    Sealed to ported question

    I've got 2 JL 12W3's in a sealed box premade by Tweeter powered by a JL 500/1. Head unit is an Alpine 7878. I've had it for a few years now, and I've never thought the bass was deep/loud enough. I've got no room for 15's or anything bigger than 2 12's. I like r&b and rap. Would I be better off going w/ a ported box or a bandpass box? If ported is the answer, can I "convert" the box or do I need a new one? Thx.

    If you want to hit harder, a ported box is the way to go. It won't play as loud on the higher bass frequencies but you will get 3 db louder in a ported box with the same equipment. Plus the low notes will sound deeper. You will need a bigger box since the 12W3's require 2.0 cubic ft of space per speaker.

    I have two 15's ported in a 18x17.5x35.25 inch box, so you could def fit two sealed 15's or even ported ones if you have the space for a few extra inches
