    civic hatchback confusion

    I was stuck on doing one 15 sealed in this little car with about 500rms but the more I read the more I see people saying to go with one 10 in hatchback cars. Pros, cons, what's your all's opinions? Before it's brought up, I will not run a ported box. Lol

    Just doing something cheap that will sound half way decent. I just use the car to drive back and forth to work

    In a 93 Acura Integra,I ran 2-10s ported,and was absolutely amazing, and seemed to be just right with the air space for the vehicle.

    ported ported ported get away from sealed to get more output from less power cone/sub size

    Re: civic hatchback confusion

    OK Thanx for the mention josh Cody here's your issue if you are going to stay sealed then just keep what you have cause you would be loosing a lotof cone area which would result in way less output. Now if you are willing to go ported it opens up a ton of options.

    I don't have anything! I bought this civic to save gas and figured I'd throw something cheap and easy in it.

    By that Cody I mean if your not willing to go ported at all then just do a sealed 15 and call it a day

    Oh alright, I got ya! Now just need to decide on which sub. It's so difficult. Prolly end up with a audiopipe apsm1500 at 4 ohm in case I decide to add another at 2 ohm. Prolly end up with about 2.5 cubes per sub. Back to researching! Thanks
