New ported boxes...experiment? Recommendations?

I currently have 2 RSS460HO in sealed enclosures and 2 JBL 12" NF. The 18" use a 6Kdsp and the 12" use a 3Kdsp. They sound fine and I have plenty of dsp to satisfy.

I have been playing around with the idea of ported enclosures. Am I satisfied with the sealed...sure they are fine. I have been thinking about taking my subs and making them ported.


I am intrigued by the devistators.


The space I am working with is 18 deep 24 wide and 36 tall / front ported. Both right and left front. These are front left and front right.

The other option is in the left rear corner which is 16x32x32. Port on the 16 side.

My sealed boxes fit nice in their locations. I have room to go higher/taller in the front.


What are your recommendations for the space provided?

I am that guy that asks for 50/50 mix music/movie.

I want low movie ulf and music punch. In my living room I want it all!

What do you guys recommend?

Have you looked into the Marty line? Mini-Martys would likely fit your space well.

Yea I figured a slot ported design like that is what I would end up with. I guess ultimately will this driver work well in the space I have?
