Is there anyway to make a sealed box louder? is there?
This person, is an idiot. A ported cabinet cannot "more than double" the output of your subs. You can pull anywhere on average from a 3db to 6db gain depending on how the box is tuned.Originally posted by northwestG@Sep 25 2003, 09:10 PM
a ported box is ur friend if u can fit a ported box get one for the right subs they can more then double the output of ur subs. some people think that a seal sounds better but this is a myth jus made by people that have the wrong box size and port tuned. a ported box makes the real low note alot louder while some of the higher notes will be only as loud as a sealed box but the low notes r the important ones

The main reason that most people choose a ported to a sealed enclosure is a much higher dB level. The sound purist, on the other hand, might choose the ported design because of a lower tuning frequency. The major drawback, however, is that a ported box can be nearly twice the size of a sealed one, if designed correctly. For example, I designed a sealed box for three 12w6s in a Suburban that was 4.5 cubic feet. Later, my customer decided that he wanted a ported design. The new box (including the port) measured just over 6.5 cubic feet.

What up Southsider,
If you are looking for my shop in the phonebook, you won't find it. I used to work at a "boutique" (very high-end) shop in the 909, but due to the fact that my boss was playing tricks w/ my checks, I decided to leave. I took my years of training and put them to use right here in my garage. I don't advertise cuz I get all the business I need from word of mouth. I've done work for Uniques D.E. & Yuma, Duke's Riv. Co., Empire So. Cal., and VW Vixens to name a few. I've also done some work for a few of the Anaheim Angels and some pro BMX riders. There's always some of my work floating around at shows. Keep an eye out. I only do in-depth systems (audio/video, upholstery, security) for people that I know or that are referred to me because it can be a big liability. However, I will build custom enclosures (built to exact specs) for anyone.
