Are you sure that the airspace in this box will be correct as a sealed unit for the speakers? Usually a sealed box has different airspace requirements than a ported box. The results might not sound as good as leaving it ported. Just something to consider.

The box wasn't meant to be sealed. It will not be good for the subs (won't sound wortrh a damn) if there is too much airspace inside the box. Check to see what the subs call for in a sealed box.

pieces of particle board work wonders
can you explain how that would work? im picturing a square piece of particle wood nailed onto the top of an otherwise decent looking box.

the box is 1.25 cubic feet per sub, and the subs can take 1.0-1.75 cubic feet in a sealed box. so this box will be fine for the subs.

He has the box...and if he's short on funds why not just plug the hole? it'll suffice till he can do it right just make sure and put some more poly-fill for the fact that it isn't ported and they are generally a bit bigger then their sealed counterparts

He can plug the holes and it will work fine.

You guys need to study speaker design and what happens when you put it in a box. There's more to it than just using the T/S parameters to dictate enclosure volume.

He'll be fine if he's on a budget. His resonant freq. will lower if the volume is more than the suggested size, but that's not a big deal at all.
