We need a model number, Wess. The manual that came with the subs should specify the cubic volume they need. Then you can go from there.

XSL122P5, I lost the manual... :-(. Should I port the box? If so, Should I port it in between the two subs?

since those subs dotn have almost any SQ you might as well go ported so you can be even louder and sound like even more @$$....

DON'T GO PORTED, THEY AREN'T MEANT FOR IT. Sealed is double the SPL of ported when your talking about Sony's. I had my 2 in a ported box to begin with and couldn't get very loud and couldn't punch at all. Now, in a prefab sealed they are twice as loud and have gained a little punch.

did you have one of those sealed/ported boxes..those dont work for porting because subs need more room when its a ported enclosure and those are made for basically sealed specs so the susb dont have enough room to breathe and all you hear is air moving throuhg the port

So If I wanted to be as loud as possible, which one do I use?
