A little late but I thought I'd give an update.
I built a ported box for the 1024 DVC and does that thing kick *** !!
Amazing bass for a 10" sub. I built a sealed box for a 1204 and it does not even come close to the output of the 10". (Ya, I know I cant compare ported and sealed, not to mention Im running the 10" at 2 ohms.)
