yeah but when you only have so much room (for instance a truck or small car) a box like that just wont work

hence why i like my 19w by 22 deep bandpass boxes

ive never had an issue with bandpass it all depends on the application too..sometimes sealed is better

LOL! Wow, those are quite morons. I at least test the fit before I carpet the box so I don't waste time carpeting it. A double thick baffle wouldn't be a bad idea, though you may need to re-carpet the box.
