    I got 2 Rockford Fosgate HEs in a sealed shitty Q-Logic box. I'm planning to build my own box but have a few questions.

    -What would be the best amp to power this sub?

    -What would be the best box set up? Sealed / Ported?

    I listen to mostly rock / metal / scremo shit. I'm not into the whole lostest system ever. I just want somthing to give it more bass and overall a little better sound quality.

    Someone give me direction:sadwavey:

    i ran a RF 1000BD on 3 of those in a ported box. loud. very loud. but those should do well in a sealed box. 500-600 watts ought to rock you.

    if they are the gray poly cone, with chrome dust caps, they're decent... if they are the black pulp cones, they slam.
