So I just Installed two 10" Subs in a Ported Box for my car and was wondering if that was a good choice? I never really could find anywhere whether ported or sealed boxes were better. Does anyone know anything about this?

Rockford Fosgate P2 250 Watt rms in a bassworx ported box.
I didn't make it!
From what little I know about car audio, I think placement is more important than ported/non ported. I hear that you want to place the subs so they are firing back toward the rear of the car and have dead space to fill with sound.
Mas stylie por favor...

Agreed. I have a two seater pickup, not much room to screw around so I use a simple powered bazooka tube. Ive been carrying it around for the last 3 vehicles. By no means is it awesome but its low key and fits the bill, and I make up for it with my DJ rig. One of these days I'll take a pic for you guys to see. But we use these: Eliminator Sub: The EV Eliminator Sub is a single 18-inch subwoofer system capable of 1600 watts of peak power and designed to produce very high-peak output music. This system can be used either in conventional bi-amplified operation or, in passive mode, connected in parallel with the Eliminator or any full-range high-peak output stage system. When used in parallel, the combined impedance is 4 ohms. The Eliminator Sub includes a top-mounted stand adapter and an 18-inch pole mount for use with the Eliminator full-range system. The system's input connections are 1/4-inch phone, but may be also ordered with the Neutrik® NL4MP (identified with the suffix "E"), that is recommended for higher power operation. The vented enclosure offers excellent power handling and low distortion in the lowest octave of rated operation. EV has also incorporated a built-in subwoofer crossover, eliminating the need for a separate electronic crossover and power amp.
Holy @#$! wow that freaking sweet

A sealed box will give you a higher quality sounding bass. A ported box will give you the louder, booming sounding bass. If you just want the loud booming bass (which seems to be the reason most buy subs for their cars), the ported box will be just fine. Then again it might depend on what type of music you listen to also but I think you get the point.
I read somewhere that the bigger the box the worse it is for sealed.
ya ive gotten conflicting info on box types. Some said that that a ported box would be better for the fast beat of Metal/Rock Music while some say otherwise. In any effect it sounds good in my car so i dont think ill change anything.
