ok, for a while now ive been trying to figure out if im a sq guy or a spl guy, seems that im a sql guy, dont blast it all day every day, only when i show it off, so i want it to be loud but sound good, anyways beside that, ive been thinking, ive tried 2 12's in a ported box because i love the lows, cant get enough of them, but i also like the higher bass notes too like in the song bia bia by lil jon, so one day i put on the song bia bia in my car after i installed my 2 12's in my dual vented enclosure tuned to 33 hz, and it didn't even play it anywhere near what it sounded like when i had the 2 12's in a sealed box, but see i changed to the ported box because the sealed wasn't hitting the lows how i wanted it to, so im stuck, i want the lows to pound and the highs to tingle my body, but i cant find a box that will do this for me with 2 12's, so ive thought and if i get 2 15's in a sealed box the extra surface area should cover for the lost lows from when the 12's are in the sealed box and it should hit the highs hard too right? im stcuk and if anyone knows of any other way please help
The key is, "right sub(s)." You don't need a ported box to have great sounding low bass. JL W7 for example will give plenty in sealed and vented. RE X.X.X is the same. From your description, it sounds like the xover is set too low on the amp.
well dont i have to have the lpf all the way to the lowest i have it at 35 hz out of 250
im confused so if my box is tuned to 33hz, dont i need to have the low pass frequency the lowest it goes because if i have it higher than 33 for example like 80, wont it cancel out any bass notes below 80. so ill have crappy bass between 33 and 80?
