Smaller ported or larger power handling


Recommended Posts

I have two sundown U12’s I contacted Bobby gately on the 2 12’s 3.25 shorty enclosure, he said would work great . My only question I forgot to ask is power handling. I know sealed box bigger less power handling smaller more handling. Does same apply to ported?

The same logic applies with ported too. It'll be hard to overpower those regardless, just make sure they're getting a clean signal

Doing a salt 4K going to set with a dd1 -5db or -7.5bd not sure yet

After displacement I’m calculating 1.44 per sub with the gately enclosure.
