    Question about Sealed boxes

    I was thinking of breakin my subs in before the port arrives, just low volume to get the motor moving for a week before I put the port in, would shared chambered sealed be okay with the subs or would it **** em up bad.

    Be careful with the gains since that is pretty big sealed

    Re: Question about Sealed boxes

    Break in isn't really required...but as long as you don't crank it too high, you should be ok to run them for a few days in the sealed box. Also I would suggest at least a 4" port for 2 8s.. a 3" is tiny!

    If its not turned up, its not gonna move. It's not gonna "break in" with regular use it will wear in on its own.
