My advice,before my advice,is to apply dampend all metal surfaces. H2 and H3 especially the H3 are vibrating pigs.Even with the slightest subwoofer system,it will go a long way for the sound quality of those riding inside and outside the vehicle.

Enclosure desighn depends on the type of music being played and/or what your trying to acheive.

If your one of those that likes to listen to some of everthing,KISS,keep it simple stupid. Go with the sealed enclorsure reccomendations that JL Audio gives you. DO NOT face the subwoofers up if you have not dampend the roof.

Jl Audio is one of those love/hate companies IMO. Are their products way overpriced? Sure. Does every product they turn out kick **** for it's intended purpose? Sure.

Back to the original question.....First you need to figure out if you want to go ported or sealed. There are highs and lows to both, but sealed will have a much flatter response. Ported will obviously peak at the tuning frequency (not always a bad thing). Sealed will be much smaller too.

Check these links to get a better idea of what you're wanting to do.....
