no problem..I do think it's all in personal preference though but overall I would go with a ported box if it was me :)

Sealed has cleaner sound
Ported if you just want bass

I'd go sealed if it was mine

Yeah well i suppose it's all personal preference. I think the Focus is small enough where the extra boom with a ported box isn't necessary. I only plan on running this at 5-600wrms, and i'd love to push 8-1k, but i don't think the sub will handle that power. TBH it's a cheap sub lol. So yeah with a ported i'll get the extra bass i would like to achieve.

Yeah, like i said, i'll see what i can get my hands on first. Someone told me they could build a custom box for $50.. But i don't need it.. And there's other things i need to get first rather than dropping that money on a custom box. They can be found super cheap on CL, i just need to find the right one.

Sealed for cleaner, sharper bass.
Ported for more booming, thumping bass.

Main thing is make sure you get the right volume.
I went from a ported box, not quite the right volume for my two 12s
To a sealed, damn near spot on volume box for my shallow 10"

Definitely not the same punch as two 12s but damn close.
I do wanna make a ported box though.

Well they fit!
They sit alot more flush than i expected. I might want to go with 205/45/17 so they don't look so meaty. I might get some 6 spokes soon too...

Nah, if i were to paint them, they would be gold. Gold will be the new color scheme, almost everything will be changed to it. The lugs at least.. I can live with the blue plug wires. The cheap caliper/drum paint will be black. Then the strut bars and valve cover will be painted gold. And the stance stickers will be removed.
