getting more interested in clamshells, trying to distinguish the advantages of a ported vs sealed. i know the ported will peak louder at tuning, but I'm reading that a sealed might be able to hit harder lower?

looking at doing something like a diamond for sealed such as 6 18's sealed, 16 12's sealed, or 8 15's sealed. for ported either 6 15's ported or 4 18s

for ported i'm looking for something like this


for sealed something like the 16 12 setup that gala monkey had in an astro i remember

i'm afraid with a diamond though i can only be about 32" deep which won't be long enough to really get the subs to load well enough to have some bottom octave authority
