had an idmax for a few years before my current sub. I loved it. bottom end on it isn't so great though in small sealed boxes, but that is to be expected. I would just go by ID's recommended enclosures, they are pretty spot on.

be like it is
bigger box = lower extension + smoother response + lower power handling

smaller box = less lowend + peaky response + increased power handling

pick your poison :)

having lower extension and needing less power does not sound like a poison - maybe the bigger box required is the only drawback.

that was really useful info bro thanks.

would you guys recommend a ported then if i wanted smooth bass? i only switched to this sub cause i wanted a more SQ sub. i listen to R&B alot so i'd like the bass to be smooth.

So ported? Or Sealed?

Also what does peaky response mean.?
