    ok I have been out of the car audio seen for a while so if you guys can give me a little help, I would not feel so old next time I am talking to some installer. I am putting a box in my truck it has 1.7 cft, air space. with 2 12" punch p2's I dont think that is not enough air space, they said it was "its a sealed box. " and I am using a linear power 2002 200 watt amp from the 1980s they said the amp runs to high a frequency .I have had this thing in every car since I was 16. that should tell you its not junk. in my opinion I think 1 12" or 1 10" of a lot better quality sub say (adire audio) would sound better in a ported box. sorry so long but thanks for your help

    I don't have a program to input #s for ya, but I'd think you'll be fine.

    You should get good punch in a small cab, just don't expect to shake the cabin.

    Running a Tempest, assuming the cost is about the same, would be a great idea. Assuming you can run the amp bridged you could sent 4ohms form the sub to a bridged 2002 and give the Tempest 250 watts.

    or so!

    + if you decide to upgrade you can always move the Tempest inside for a great home theater sub. I wouldn't advise that of the P2s.

    I'd be glad to run a sim for you... but I didn't find "Punch P2" in my driver database. I assumed this is a Rockford Fosgate product, since they have used "punch" on many of the products over the years. Could you tell us a little more about the driver: manufacturer, model number (if anything other than "Punch P2), etc.

    get one ED 12Ov.2, or i think Ben calls in 13O series. Will give the best output/performance of pretty much any sub in its class.
