sealed for the Type R's i swear....if u want it to pound and hit every note you want a small sealed box.....mine is 1.75 cubes for each sub and it hits pretty **** good....it sounds better than my friends ported one....but im still thinking about building a 4 cube ported box at 32 Hz

i know i have them to every shop around here asks what type of music do u listen to then they show you a sub and then a box and they always go to sealed.....but since you want ported i would prolly do 4 cubes @ 30-32Hz it will give you the lows and the SQ....i am going to make a ported box soon in that range so if you do it lemme know how it sounds

I don't like them ported. Mine has been tuned to like 30 before and it hit all the notes. It was crazy on soul survivor.

I just built my box for the new type-r with 2.1ft^3@29hz and it sounds pretty good for lows and sounds pretty good for rock/alternative. I would suggest going with 4.2-4.5ft^3@29-30hz. It will sound good.

Guys im curious as to whats the best cube to run a type r at?

Specifically a 15" Type R thats going to be tuned @ 32 Hz... people are throwing out all these random sizes but whats the best for that setup ? like 4 cubes or does it need more? I listen to mostly rap

AlpineUser

yeah it pounds...i cant wait until i get my next car so i can build another box for them...this one will be alot better since the sealed box was my first box ever

AlpineUser

also i wouldnt go under 30...32 will be pretty good for them...they will get loud and it will hit the lows pretty nice....if you wanna hit pretty hard tho put 500 watts in each sub....i only did 350 because i knew i would bllow mine so quick cause i am dumb lol....i want so much bass where you can hear the words but really loud bass
