What about the box makes you think that?
If just because it's sealed, don't worry.
Generally a sealed enclosure is considered a better choice for a room less than 2000sq f or so.
If your room is enclosed, you will get some serious room gain and probably have a wicked response with the Ultimax down to below 20hz.
having a ported Sub in that room will probably be a disadvantage because it will have a bloated response around the port tune that you'll have to cut out anyway to make it sound correct. Then the frequency response will drop off quickly below the port tune, robbing you of that deep ULF bass.
No replacement for displacement.
I'm building a sealed UM18 right now.
No way in hell it won't kick the pants out of those other two subs.

Yeah there the fact that its sealed and also some seem to suggest that the box isn't big enough. Was also wondering if the box had the cutouts for the connection to the outside amplifier. If i were to build the 18" i would want to do it for the sound and also I would expect to save money. After some research it seems there's still a bit if stuff I would need like glue, speakonn connectors, some filling, and other stuff dont know how much that would add to the cost so theres that.
Dont know why im worried about sealed boxes, think ive been reading that they have less of that heavy hit, I would like the sub woofer to really hit you in the chest during right scenes.
