Now that I have my approx dimensions and the "enclosure calculator" and know what I want as far as type of sound... what size enclosure (cubic feet) do I need to get a good mix of SQ and Low end with the 05 Apline R 12" ? Planned on going sealed.

Also, do you guys recommend baracing?

Thanks,
Hawk

I would go with the 1.75 cuboc feet Alpine reccomends ported at 35Hz or sealed if you like. I hear those alpine R's like around 700watts too. I know my E types were underrated somewhat.
