Ok so atm I have 12k OA s series 12" sub. It was in a big front slot port box, mtx sledgehammer box, but I wanted a little more space.
So I've put it into a small seal box. But when the subs hitting hard it pushes out air and dosnt take more back in. So it pulls the cone down and hardly works.
Can I just drill a hole in it. Or would it be wiser to try and find the leak and block it.

Nah, 12" sub 12" box. Haha.
I've used the box for a few other subs and its been fine. Sub fits well around the ring. Its leaking around the join somewhere and maybe from the terminals.

The idea of a sealed box is that it is sealed...

If you go drill a hole in it you'll ruin it's properties...

Take the less half a*** approach and actually fix the problem as opposed to band aiding it :p

Cheers,
Tim

What Mitch meant was is the cubic capacity of the box correct for the sub?

Sounds like the box is too small and the box is badly sealed. Either get a new one made up properly or fix the problem...hell even silicon or no-more-gap stuff can do the trick. You can damage your sub if it's been pulled back.

Ok, box is small as.
Has been used for a fair few subs probably leaking from all the holes in it.
Fixed the problem tho. Put it back into the sledgehamer box.
