    how do you know which box is better for a spec sub?

    Is there a way to tell if your sub will play better in a sealed ported or bandpass box?

    I have 2 10'' Tremor subs
    Having the one in a ported at the momment...... it shakes the car, glass but not me

    The specs if they help any
    Fs = 28Hz
    Qms 4,726
    Qes 0.483
    Qts 0.438
    Vas 1,6 Ft 44L
    Xmax 0.5''
    85db 1w/1m
    Revc 6.3MH @ 1 kHz
    Single Voice coil 8ohms
    (www.earthquakesound.com tremor 10'' old model)

    don't know if this is true... sealed is for rock? bandpass to hear you a block away?
    I like trance if it helps in the decision....
    At the descr off them it says "push-pull" configuration but there was no information about it when I bought it. Couldn't find any info on the net either.

    I run it with PH300.1 (Brand: Earthquake i know that noone knows the brand

    Im not an expert on the subject but in my opinion if you looking for the loud thump of the techno trance sound your going to want a ported box that your sub is designed for, you will get a deeper bass sound that will not be as tight as a sealed box. A sealed box will give a you tighter bass sound that is not as loose as the ported, in a ported enclosure the sub will not respond as quick as a sub in a sealed box.

    ported then, thank you!

    another one question, can a number of 10'' subs replace (do the work) of a 15'' sub?
