    I can care less about the specs in most cases. I try different configurations and several types of enclosures ect,and have since the late 80s, amplifiers,and several , several different types of installs.Over the years Ive experimented out of the norm as others have of which of some of the knowledge is spoken today with what we know and have experienced and have had hands on from experimenting and have taken what most consider RISK.Ive tried the Gcon 12s in a sealed enclosure in a 93 hatch Integra on my one of my Autotek Mean Machine 99s and it sounded absolutely amazing for the duration I had them in there.Pretty clean sealed with my experiencing

    Ive ran a pair of Dayton HO 10s and still have them in my amp/audio room/both in a sealed 3.0 cu ft enclosure, and they did pretty nicely in a 98 CRV for a while.Not ground shakers by any means but really clean punched bass I got from them.Nice clean sounding subs.I do think the IDQs sound much better,as Ive heard several but yet, in several different types of vehicles,and not on my own within any of my own.Boston Oval subs sound pretty good, but that Flatline Arc 1k 12 is one best Ive ever experienced and sounded fantastic

    You can get a 12/even a pair of 8s or 10s in a center console setup/in the seat between the drive and passenger..ported as well as sealed.Ive sat in several single cab trucks with these types of enclosures and sounded pretty dammned good..Its another option rather than under a seats or behind the seats

    Sealed has its place. This is the first time Iíve ran sealed in the last 15 years.
    I donít think Iíll use ported again unless I go back to a ground pounder
    Ported only gains a few DB around the port tuning and it sacrifices the top end.
    Itís all a give and take.

    What pros and cons can you share with us? I sensed a low output of volume but appreciated the punchier softer tight boom. It was nice but I guess Iím into mirrors shaking and all that. Would I do it it again? Probably, every once in a while I experiment too out of boredom.

    Pros. More uniformed range. Better mid bass.
    Cons. Softer low end but itís not bloated and more true to the source.

    But itís all woofer dependent.

    I don't think you understand what limited space means. If someone is dead set on sealed AND limited on space, well there you go. You wanna design a sealed enclosure for the OP I'd love to see it.

    Sealed isn't for everybody, but when you don't have much room, sometimes you have no choice. Or get another vehicle.

    I understand what limited space means and also know that sealed is normally smaller than ported. Just sharing my opinion to the OP is all.

    Nah I'm not buying it. You quoted me, therefore I'm taking it as such. Your opinion is invalid.
