ported louder than sealed?
 

 
in general, are ported systems usually heard from farther away than a sealed system? cuz i know this kid who has 3 sealed subs and i sat in his car and its insance loud but u cant hear it from far away but when u sit in my car it dont sound as loud but u can hear it from a couple blocks down

IIRC a ported setup will hit harder and louder, but sealed will give you a cleaner tight sound. My 1 12" sounds tight inside the car but it's not that loud on the outside. Kinda good though, don't wanna get my sh*t jacked.

it kinda depends on the application, the subs, the quality of the box, sound deadening etc. but ported will almost always be louder than sealed

Yep. Generally Speaking Ported Is Louder. Be Careful Though. Miscalculations On The Enclosure Size & Port Size, Lenght, & Placement Can Have Drastic Affects On The Sound And Performance

think of it like this, if u hum (bass) then plug ur nose (sealed) its a diff sound and not as loud if u jus let ur nose remain open (ported)

from what im told, ported is louder, but sealed is deeper.

for me, what im lookin for is deep bass. i'd go with sealed. I dont need people outside my car to hear my music.

I would go with slot ported it gives you the best of both worlds.

go with ported if the application space allows..if not you will need to go sealed..to save space..but sealed is more for SQL (Sound Quality) and ported is for SPL (Deeper BASS)

A sealed box to me sounds a lot cleaner and clearer. I had 3 pioneers in a sealed box in 94 new yorker and it hit 3 times harder than my brothers 2 infinity's in the 94 acura legend. But the size of car matters too. Its all in your preference and taste.

well DUH, 1st of all you have 3 subs and he has 2, you both have different installs and different brands. Judging your system and your bro system to compare boxes is not the way to do it considering the differences

I saw you posted this topic on another forum, and you left out quite a few details here than you specified there.

He should be louder considering he has 2000+ watts to your 1200...and he also has a bit more cone area running 3 12's to your 2 squares. Also loud to the ear and loud on the meter are two different things. Im out of my "heard down the block" phase, personally I dont want ANYONE to hear me as I drive by, your likely to keep your equipment a lot longer this way.

Rabbi and Sharp.... I ported box can be made to "hit" as well... port tuning is your friend.
