Re: subs

best may not be loudest and vice versa. a single 12" is plenty for a civic. i run a sealed box.

Re: subs

I understand that but some vehicles do not handle ported box's well at all. I am a ported box kinda guy personally. I was planning on doing 1 L7 12 ported to 35hz, with 750-800 watts. But I wanted to hear from you guys to see if ported or sealed do better in these.

it's a matter of personal preference. i've never heard a ported box i liked, in any car or any store. too boomy and not tight enough. again, personal preference.
