    If you listen to rap and like loud boomy bass than you'll want ported or bandpass. Sealed boxes are not as loud,, and produce quick tight sounding bass, but cannot play as low as a ported box. If your buliding the box yourself, you should go with sealed box.

    Re: Type of sub box

    You may ask why should I go with a sealed box if you build it yourself. This is the answer to that. If you are new to building sub enclosures you will not be able to tune the box. You may (and I say may) be able to get it right, but it takes time and may even take a few box designs.

    I do not like to advertise for any company, but if you have to money to spend, and want the most BOOM for you buck then find or go to a dealer that sells OBCON enclosures. Get the GZ series. They are designed for alum and titanium drivers. I can assure you that you will be happy with the heart stopping bass this thing will put out.

    Re: Type of sub box

    Go to your sub manufacture's webpage or consult your dealer/owner's manual. THis might really help with your enclusure if you are doing it yourself. I know Infinity(my sub manufacturer) has a specific box size diagram for all thier subs, both sealed and ported, for maximum performance of that SPECIFIC sub. They tell all the dimensions of the box and port plus the cu/foot of thier diagram. On a DIY use MDF, if it's a basic box. It's easy to work with, and cheap. SCREW everything and use wood glue. If you use nails, you need more help then we can offer:/ and don't forget to seal all cracks and joins well with silicone.
