Very nice looking box there. My single 12" sealed box thumps very well. This must be insane. I need one. :D

Another feature that the new dual sub boxes will have is a vent cap that you can screw over the vent opening on the back of the box to seal the box. In the past I've had customers that insisted on having a sealed box because they wanted sound quality over spl. Now with the new box design you can try it both ways and decide what you like.
I've tried several different brands and models of subs so far in the dual 12 vented box. Even though the box is 1.5 ft3 per side and some of the sub manufacturers recommend 1.75-2.25 vented, they still play deep and play twice as loud running the box vented instead of sealed.
For years Memphis Audio has been telling there dealers that there 12 inch subs will work well in vented boxes as small as 1.25 even though they recommend 2.25. The main difference is the power needed and the issue of fitting the port inside such a compact box. As the box gets smaller the power needed to push the sub increases.

Why the change from the old plastic boxes?

That is very cool. I did something similar on a fiberglass box i built for my old jeep. I used round PVC for the ports and at home depot they sell "test plugs" that can be used to seal up the PVC so it can be pressure tested.

So I could flip back and forth between sealed and ported. Ported was always much louder, but certain types of music would cause my subs to bottom out. It was nice to have the option.

Will you have to pull the box out of the truck in order to seal it up?

Since this new design seems to be MDF rather than the previous style of moulded plastic, are these going to be covered in gray cloth like every other sub box on the planet?

Why the change to MDF?
