ive got a type-r 12, im lookin to make a box for it but i dunno which kind or how big. Alpine said it should be .75-1 cube sealed but that seems a little small to me. ill prolly put it in a sealed box but the cubes they rec. jus seem too small to me. :banghead:

Do as Jmac said and put it in a 1.25 - 1.75 cu. ft. sealed box. You'll be happy with it.

What amp do you have to power it?

i didn't think that sealed boxes were tuned? i am prolly wrong but im curious as to how this could effect me?

alright, gotta ask this. in calculating my box volume what effects will a bigger box lead to? whould i try and go relativly large or not? i am looking for mostly sq but i wanna feel the notes a little too.
