Sealed or Poeted Box...? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

where are you coming up with this..

2 subs in a sealed produces 3db. LOL

say you have a 12" ported

and I have 2 12" sealed same subs

first off I have 12" more cone space and the ability to have two times the power. Now right there I will kick your ported in the butt...

According to your theory then both should sound the same since they will both be +3db

LMAO dont think so..

Side note: Some extreme setups for SPL comps, because ports can't flow enough...

Like Ibanez said, porting is A LOT about tuning. Any setup can sound good (even bandpass, hell i've got to listen to bandpass till spring break) but you just have to do your setup properly. Sealed will generally have the flattest response.

What your subs specs are, what you listen to, your knowledge, and your trunk requirements are big determinents as to what you can/should run.
