okay the specs that crutchfield gave me on the alpine type x is that its has a top mount depth and a bottom mount depth. if i was to fire it foward in a custom truck box what depth do i go by?

go by bottom, if you are conventionaly mounting the sub where you set the subwoofer into the opening and screw it down to the top of the front baffle.

if you are using MDF you want to use at least 5/8

okay. i think il go with 5/8 cause of space reasons. now with a sealed box im making it the length of the back wall of my cab which is around 40'' so do i have to set a barrier inbetween the subs or can it just be a huge open on the inside box

you could do a common ichamber box like your talking about, would save you very little airspace
