    2 questions

    just bought a single lanzar OPTI1232D. I will be hooking it up to a rockford p1000-1bd mono amp.

    i have 2 questions

    1. I want to buy a box from amazon because I dont feel like building my own. This is a pretty big sub so what size enclosure would be the best for it? I want it sealed. should I get something like .8 or 1.5 cu ft?

    2. whats the difference between wiring it to 1 or 4 ohm? which one should I do?

    wire it to 1 ohm for the most power : 4ohm= 250 watts rms, 1ohm = 1000 watts rms.

    At least buy a box that fits that sub and is strong enough to support it with a double baffle, if you buy prefab:
