I had the sill panel and rear sail panels out, and was playing some tones and sweeps, and it's amazing how much leakage there is at the pop clips when they are out. It actually seals up really well when you install them. I use the term sealed loosely because the "enclosure" as it is resonates quite easily, to be expected of thin gauge metal I suppose. With all the panels installed it isn't too noticable inside, though you can certainly hear it outside. I was trying to figure out a good way to damp it, but I think it would be pretty tough to get damping material every where in there...
Ok so I obviously didn't pick this up. What I meant was that the enclosure the sub is attached to is "channeled" into the chamber in the side skirts. I wasn't aware that they were actually "sealed," thus the reason I said they were ported. Thanks for clearing that up though.

Haha yea it's going to be hard finding a guinea pig for that though. I certainly don't want to pour tide in my enclosures! lol
