Sealed Box

Does anyone know what the best placement of two 10" subwoofers would be? Would it better to punch a hole where the back arm rest is, and make the subs facing forward, or have them facing the back of the car? Either configuration, I plan on getting a custom sealed enclosure done...thanks~~

When my car was at the audio shop they tried out a number of different enclousures... Free air, bandpass, ported, and sealed... With my kicker solobarics, sealed was the best way to set this system up...

interesting

I'm glad you were able to find a setup you're happy with. I wish i was in your shoes right now. =/ i still dont know if i should get a ported enclosure or a sealed enclosure...sigh. What do you think about ported enclosures? Better than sealed?

I definitly prefer sealed to ported or bandpass. I was a home theater junkie before I got into car audio, so I put sound quality well over thunderous monotone slamming. Dont get me wrong, it is very possible to get a hardcore slam with sealed enclosures without sacrificing sound quality, you just need the proper amp and sub combo.

That's really odd, almost every car audio person/site says that Ported gives more of the monotonous slamming effect that you hear from 30 blocks away..

Sealed is supposed to be best for sound quality, bandpass second.
