I've noticed most of you choose a ported enclosure for your system. Are you guys going for SPL rather than SQ? Anything I've ever been told is that sealed boxes sound a million times better.

Oh, and how do you keep your boxes from sliding around your trunk? My new box slides around alot.

I'm not saying that's my opinion, but anyone I've talked to has said something to that effect.

just depends on how much of an SQ nut you are

but in a ported box they should still sound good to your average listener

yea it still sounds good to me. it's just alot bigger than what I'm used to for a single 12" box. the sealed ones are usually half the size.

it depens on the port area. more port area more deebees but more area requires a longer port to create the same tuning frequency but a larger port area also usually means less port noise. Ported boxes are better its that simple. so build your own custom ported box. DO NOT BUY A PREFAB BOX THEY SUCKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!
