I can tell you that the 10" typhoon Series Takes like a 0.6-0.8cu' per driver after displacement. so like 1.2 to 1.6cu' for a pair sealed.

id say sealed... easier to build, takes less space up, and sounds louder to the ear than a ported box..... although ported box gives you a higher dB reading.... but if you just want something to listen in your daily driver to then ported does you no good.... my opinion atleast....ive never built a ported box myself.

IMO ported delivers a deeper bass with more feel. When running a driver in a ported box, you also don't need as much power as you do with a sealed box.

A sealed box delivers tighter, more punchy bass. And the reverse of above, you require more power to power a driver in a sealed enclosure.

Id say go ported, Ive personally never heard anyone ever tell me that a sealed will sound louder.
I have had sealed and ported boxes and the ported were always louder, and they will sound just as good with a properly designed box.

L x W x H /1728= cu'

You just have to remember that you need to subtract the thickness of your material so that you are only using the inside dimensions.

hmmm ive always been told sealed sounds louder to the ear... n my friend put his 2 12" in a ported from a sealed box and they were not as loud... guess the box was not made right then....
