Subs - Boxed, Ported or Inverted???


Unregistered guest
Im looking for serious advice. Im trying to install some kind of sub system to a BMW e36 (sealed boot) and need guidance on which type of bass system would give the best results. 2 x 12"? 1 x 15"? Sealed, ported or inverted?? I listen to mainly bass heavy dance music and R&B. Please help!

If i was u i would go with two 12''s maybee even three in a sealed box. I think if u put a 15" in there it will rattle your trunk way to much and way more than the 12''s. I had three kicker comp vr 12"s in a sealed box and they were nice and had no distortion.

The 2 or 3 kicker comp vr 12s is the way to go lots of power with real deep bass at 2 or 4 ohms. the 15 is too much for that little car. i personally prefer the sealed box.

Ye i agree 2 or 3 kickers would be give superbe insane bass.But remember having 3 sub`s is gunna run down your car battery,make sure you got a very good 4/6 channel amp with lots of power output.
