Build the TC Sounds recommended 3-cubic-foot vented enclosure, with the single 4"-diameter vent. Use a Precision Port flared port kit from Parts Express. These will give you good results. It takes an incredible amount of motor strength to generate the kind of air movement that the TC-1000 is capable of from an enclosure smaller than 3 cubic feet. But the good news is, a 3-cubic-foot enclosure is more compact than you may think. Build an enclosure with internal dimensions of 14.5"Wx18"Hx20"D. The vent length needed should be able to fit into that space. Use 3/4" MDF single-layer construction, and add a single "window" brace halfway along the length. Use the "Screw-and-glue" method to attach enclosure panels -- apply the glue, and screw the panel into the adjoining panel.

But Ron E, from my "sealed or vented enclosure for the tc-1000" thread said:
" Post #2
Actually, a Sealed box with an F3 of 35Hz will sound very solid.

That woofer will not work ported unless you use a VERY large diameter port. If you use anything less than a 6" diameter flared port you will have mucho whistling and chuffing noises if you apply any power at all. Alternatively you could use several Passive Radiators instead of a port. Note that the Mfg. recommended enclosures are showing response with an external highpass filter which applies bass boost. This is a bit of a cheat for marketing purposes, IMO.

I'd go sealed, especially if this is for a car."

So... I'm confused...
