    questions about sub settup...one ported vs. two sealed

    ok i jus posted a similar topic on this recently...but i need this cleared up- i was recently told that 1 SE sealed to ported box is about 3db gain. and 1SE to 2SE sealed is about 3 db gain. would this not be relative equal in db? (which would be spl) this depends on if i spend $200 less on my system or not. really appreciate it. thanks everybody

    i would say 2 would be much louder that on, assumeing proper power, in almost any enclosure but i may be mistaken.
