Hi,
Newbie to the site so please be gentle :-)

I have just purchased an RE8 Subwoofer form my MR2 (Limited space), I have designed a box type: "Prism, Slanted Front" which has a capacity of: VB= 0.608 cu ft.

Now the questions are:

1. Using the RE8 do I go for Ported or Sealed
2. If Ported what or how do I work out what to
use ??
3. Do I fill the box ??

Any help or guidance would be really appreciated as this is my first attempt at such a box.

Many thanks

Will let you know, just had notice that the sub will be delivered tomorrow morning so can't wait, rock n roll here we come :-)

The program is "Bassbox Pro", really neat proggy that helps design your box, advises on wiring, etc and has a database of Subs.

Send an email to gtech@f2s.com and I'll let you have more info ;-)
