    Well if you are going to build your own box, One recommendation I can give you is once done, seal it with fiberglass resing. No air will be leaking. Give it a couple of coats. You'll be cooking.

    Don't worry about perfectly sealing the box unless you are putting out some serious sound. I've never seen any difference.
    Definitely make sure your box is STRONG. I'm personally a fan of sealed box due to its small size however it isn't very efficient or loud.

    from my own experience the best bass does come from a sealed box. from the ones that ive heard ported boxes seem to muffled bass. as for being loud, you might have to drive them slightly harder but subs in sealed boxes can pack a punch. i have 2 600 watt MTX 10's in sealed boxes in my f150 and wow. thats some bass.

    one thing i forgot to mention, i custom built my sub boxes to exact specifications set by MTX. if your making your own boxes or even buying them, the exact amout of air volume inside the box does matter. and if you plan on using that polyfill stuff in the box that also needs to be taken into effect as it simulates a larger box.
