Question about Pioneer C-Type TS-W306DVC Car Subwoofer
I am running 2 pioneer 12s powered by a pyramid 4 channel 1700 watt amp. This system is in a 1999 Mercury Cougar. What would be the best style box to use. Bandpass, un-ported or ported regular box
If you're looking for SPL (LOUD) go vented.
If you're looking for tonal accuracy (Sound Quality) go sealed.
The tradeoff between the two is that a ported enclosure will allow your subs to play highly powered. More air flow - better cooling of the voicecoils.
Sealed enclosures dont like much power because the coil cannot breathe and heats up rather quickly.
Its up to you, and your listening type.
Just remember LOUD = PORTED
QUALITY = SEALED
Bandpass is kind of a mixture of the two, however you give up some of the frequency range the sub plays at - and I dont ever recommend a bandpass enclosure to my customers unless they are looking to be flashy and light up the cones or magnet assemblies.
There are advantages and disadvantages to every enclosure type.
Pick the one that best suits your taste, and be sure to fire it toward the rear of the vehicle for the best response and cabin gain.
