The simple answer is yes. it will sound bad.Moe said:you can buy subwoofer which are infinate baffle, which means they can be played without a box. they need to be mounted on a shelf of some sort. the drawback of this is that the rear wave will cancel the front one out so bass will be reduced. you need a subwoofer thats desighned for infinite baffle operation. if you mount a normal sub without a box then it will over-exert and hit the backplate, this will knacker the sub out

i have had jbl in the past and there good for the money i still have a set of 6x9s in the loft which i ran for 5 years and they are faultless and they sound good ,stick to the quality speakers , pioneer , kenwood, alpine ,infinity, audibahn , rockford fosgate, etc and also sony subs are not fiberglass there Polypropylene as are most cones on most speakers and sony are not always the best speakers but not the worst by a long way nor are jblDavyw22 said:oh no you didnt dont eva say JBL On this forum eva in front of me
