    Are audiobahn tuned bandpass enclosures any good?

    HI there, I was looking into a 2 12inch tuned bandpass enclosure from audiobahn, are they good? they are rated at 800watts RMS, I think its more like 400RMS and 800MAX, but will it sound good in a small SUV? The box is 4ohm stereo...

    I liked the boxes because of the price, looks and well they are rated average....What would be a good amp to power this subs?

    THX in advance...

    bandpass boxes have a very small range of frequency's around to what it's ported to.
    it lacks A LOT of sound quality, as all you hear is "port noise", not real bass.
    if you like it, go for it



    i decided not to have a signature

    i was looking at those subs too but i dont think thats the right kind of enclosure. id go with sealed too. bandpass might be better for some subs but not these.

    Bandpass just inst good, ive had too many bad experiences with them. Sealed is the only surefire way.

    I paid $139 for mine off of cardisountstereos.com, and for that price they pound hard.
    I am pushing them with a JBL 1200.1 amp, and im only runnin it in four ohms, they handle that power easy and sound good.
    For the price this setup can't be beat...i know Shivas are only $125 each, but for $14 more you can have 2 subs in an awesome looking, and sounding box.
