    I'd recommend getting an American Bass 12". Ive got a buddy with just that and a larger amp (cant remember what), and it was easily comparable to my two 12"s that I have.

    Why don't you try it sealed? The enclosure would be considerably smaller.

    The cheapest option would be to try it sealed first and back the gain down.

    You know as well as i do i won't back the gain down. I love it being loud and flexing, it's just my car hates it.. I'm loving how it sounds ported it just takes up so much room. How similar will it sound sealed? I know though if the power and means is there it will get used

    The sound will be very similar overall, just less efficient.
