these subs sound pretty nice when i listen to them at future shop...are they really decent subs? they are rated at 300rms a piece...how true are infinity's rms ratings? would a pair of these in a bandpass box pound nice and clean but hard if i crank it loud?

iv heard some bad about infinity subs...what do yall have to say about em?

lol..shows how much of a newb i am...i thought bandpass = ported! LOL!!

but yea, i was gonna go ported for sure. i was planning on buying the subs privately as i know someone who has a pair for cheap. future shop sells ported boxes built to spec for those subs, so wont be too hard to find a decent box

does built to spec make THAT much of a difference?

how much better sound am i going to get between a ported box thats close to spec, one that just fits in my trunk, and a ported box built to spec?

close to spec is fairly important. If it's not close to where it should be, it's either going to sound boomy, handle no power before bottoming out, or not go low enough.

I'm running an older Infinity Reference (1230 I think ) I have 300 running to it in an sealed box. When builing the box we ran with the spec supplied and love the result. Can't say what they will do on a band pass. I do recomend the line. and ya stay close to spec. I'd say the maufacture has done more work with the then say you or I
