View Full Version : Help with enclosure design for type X

05-06-2006, 01:59 AM
I have two ALPINE SWX-1242D subs. I need suggestions for building an enclosure for them. I wondered if anyone could help who may already own these subs. The amp is a SoundStream Class D 2000watt RMS amp that puts out its power at 1ohm. Anyone who already has these subs? Or anyone who has built enclosures for these have any ideas?

I wish, but alpine doesn't really have anything speciffic for a ported enclosure for this sub. Just really generic stuff. I wondered if anyone else who has Type X's has built enclosures for them.

personally id say 2cu.ft tuned at 32hz each sub(4cu.ft @32hz) ... what do yall think about this??

I built a box for my boys 10" type x 1.50 cu tuned to 38hz and that thing drops better then some 12's ive heard. So 2cu tuned to around 36 hz should do a 12" x just fine
