    What kind of box?

    I bought 2 04' 15" Kicker Comp. VR's
    I am going to build a custom box. What should I use, a ported box, or a sealed Box?
    I will be running both these subs in one box.
    For a sealed box its recommended 1.80 - 5.20 cu.ft.
    For a ported box its recommended 3.00 - 5.00 cu.ft.
    I will probably want to build a sealed box, if I do what should i run for cubic feet?
    My question is what would sound better? and give me richer, deeper bass?

    Port it and tune it low, the best of both worlds...

    I'd go towards the upper end of the spectrum, 4 - 5 cuft sounds about right...
