one e12kx sub; recommended ported box volume = 1.5cuFt; recommended tuned freq: 26hz.

I don't like saying what sounds "better", but what can I expect from, for example, :

- a box 2.0 cuFt @ 20 something hz

versus

- a box 1.5 cuFt @ 30 something hz

Obviously the lower-tuned one will be able to go lower, but I don't want a box that gets crazy (in a bad way) cause the box is too big. I'm an SQ guy; gonna be pushing this one sub with 160W rms (bridged off a usx4065). The box I have now is 1cuFt sealed (the recommended volume from eD), however it's not installed. I wanna be able to experience a sealed box and a ported one. This is my first sub.

Also, keep in mind that the only time I've been in a car that had a sub was like in '93 (when I was in 3rd grade) and didn't know anything about what sounds good (I just know it was LOUD and I got out the car still shaking...)

In order to answer your question, I would need to know what model (e.g. SW4200, SW7524DVC). Also, are you looking to make a ported box or sealed?
