    do you really need a box?

    do you really need a box i have seen people mount their subs in their cars without even using a box so i was wondering how that affects the subs

    ever hear of a free-air woofer?

    Certain compaines make woofers especially for free-air use (i.e. use without a box). I'm not sure what the exact mechanical differences between a free-air woofer and a ported/sealed box woofer are, but I don't think that these woofers perform quite as well as their boxed counterparts.

    hope that awnsered your question.

    yeah my friend gave me his piece of crap jensen 200 watt amp. i was thinking what am i gonna do with this. so i decided to buy a kenwood tornado 10" and put it under my passenger seat and run it free air off a kill switch. it's mainly to irritate girls when they get in my car and most girls hate it. the only one's that dont are the one's that haven't gotten in my car

    Why would you want to irritate girls that are in your car? That doesn't sound like a good idea

    it's not so much that it irritates them. just makes them wet. and most girls don't like to be put in that kind of a mood around there friends which is what most of my female friends are. kinda just me being a young prick at times b/c i like to mess with them now if i am going out on a date or something i leave it off but if i am going to lunch with a group of friends they always make the girl sit in front b/c of that sub. and the girls end up smackin my friends upside the head for it by the time we get to where we are going.i think it's funny i put the sub in there and my friends get smacked.

    keep it thumpin,

    So how did you add that extra sub, did you run it off one of the front channels with a passive crossover or something?

    Not all drivers are designed for freeair use, and some will give terrible response if done so... Be sure to do the research prior to doing this.
