Default Thoughts On Venting Kick Panels

Sorry if this thread is somewhat of a repost. The others had limited information in them. Just curious if most of you are running your kick panels sealed or vented? Does a sealed kick panel offer more cone control for the midbass? I'm going to be starting another kick build pretty soon and I wanted to get some input. If I wanted the midbass to play lower, would it be better to vent the enclosure? If so how big of a vent should be cut into the enclosure? I'm sure its going to be different for everyone depending on how much space is available. I just wanted to see how this affected the frequency response of the driver. Thanks for any input.

all drivers require a given amount of airspace. If you can get away with sealing a driver in the kick panel, go for it. But that's rarely the case with midbass drivers. Looks like you have MW172? it would be pretty disastrous if you tried to seal those in the kicks. They expect a large enclosure because they're designed for a door. How you cent them also matters. A small hole will not cut it.

Hey Verticalscope, why the fuck do you force me to pay $500 a year for having a logo in my signature, then remove the ability to have said signature.. I'm wondering when one of you will get back to me about a refund. Thank you

The new kicks would be for a 6 inch driver. I currently have my dyns in a sealed kick panel enclosure. I guess I should try venting them lol. I did always wonder what they would sound like if I did. Looks like I will have two projects to work on.

Does the driver tend to play lower with a vented enclosure?
