I have a audiobahn a8000t amp - 800rms
Im looking to get a box for 2 12" subs. Either kickers or audiobahns.
I was looking at this pack.

What does anyone think about getting it.

If not, im not sure if i should get a bandpass box or a ported box. A wise man once told me that bandpass boxes are a no no unless you know what you are doing. Can Anyone help!!!!??

i'd get kicker over audiobahn any day. neither are the best unless you just want spl though.

i definately wouldn't buy that package neither. i personally hate bandpass boxes. to me they are cheap boxes thrown in with crappy subs and sold as packages to uninformed buyers, no offense.

look at the bottom for best prices and better shippin than cardomain and wit the a800t will be good enough and the aw1206t will be prepare for more but if u want spl go wit the 08t but forget about the sq but say hello to spl at that price

Im not sure if i should get a bandpass or ported. Bandpass sold on ebay or other sites look about 300% better. They normally have some fiberglass and some neons - some extra stuff to impress people at your high school. But ported or vented are always just wood and carpeted with charcaol color.

I still dont know what box to get!!!?

Any good looking ported i could get????

band pass are louder than ported in some frequensis but ported have will win easily plus bandpass will sound good in some freqensis and when they are out of the freqensis it will make your subs go crazy thats why ported is betterthan bandpass and most of the hertz the ported is louder
