Dave did you switch back to the 4520 for power yet? When having ANY type of issues, eliminate as much complexity and as many variables as possible. If you insist on keeping the inuke in the chain,...

Haha, 200lbs on a balanced barbell is certainly easier to maneuver than a 3 foot wide 200 lb coffin. :) it can be done when needed, but I'll save my energy for building the second box. :)

I'd vote for the ported if you have the space. :) That is a significant difference in the 15-20hz region. You could almost get away with just running one sub! Any reason you're modeling the ported...
