    Sundown ev5 8" sealed?

    I know porter is better, but space is limited. Will one of these subs perform decently in a sealed box and if so how much space do they need? Sorry if this is beaten to death...

    No, its not suited for sealed, its not what its geared for. Go with a 6.5 ported instead.

    Back in the day the did a great 8 test on a Nissan forum by a high end SQ guy ..with 8 fairly high end subs in a compact sealed box for best SQ and low end ..I’m thinking on about 500 rms ..and DD 1508 won hands down even though it was considered as a ported only sub ...so you never really know till you experiment ..
