    Question about sub box

    So I ordered a Sundown X-15. Ported box spec says 4.2 cu ft I believe. I have two boxes but not sure which to use and don't wanna take the time to find out lol. Im only gonna be pushing the X-15 on 1300rms when it can handle alot more.

    Box 1: Ported (Recessed) Sub Enclosure Box for a 15" Rockford T2 Subwoofer - 32 Hz | eBay

    Box 2: 4 CU. FT. CUSTOM-VENTED 15" MDF CAR AUDIO SUB WOOFER BOX ENCLOSURE TUNED @ 32Hz | eBay

    Im thinking Box 2 because its 4 cu ft, but at the same time I'm thinking Box 1 because Ill be running the sub on lower power. I'm not good with boxes and just need some opinions

    Thanks

    Lower power usually allows for a larger box and vica versa.

    Re: Question about sub box

    The port area of the first one is WAY low for a box that big.

    The 2nd one looks to be in the ball park (would be nice if they'd give that spec). It should work pretty well.
