Box is 3 cubes tuned at whatever.

I screwed up the bracing a little though :( The front baffle braces were supposed to be aligned vertically, but I put the top and bottom braces in first and I did the the same way I planned to do the front/back braces. So I had to stagger the dowels a little as you'll see.

I would have added rounded PVC corners, but there's no room except 1 corner to do that.

LOL the glue for the second baffle.

Box looks too small for a pair of type-r's. Whats the specs on it? I'm hoping at least 2 cubes per sub. :(

Also, ports are WAAAAY too close to the subs.

I still laugh every time I see all these boxes popping up on ca.com that use external aeros firing to the side. TCAB anyone?

Let the flaming begin.

Oops. :laugh:

Yeah, that box is way too tiny for a pair of type-r's. At MINIMUM i would do 2 cubes per sub. I've built a 1 cube, 1.6 cube, and a 2 cube box for my 10", and it hated everything besides the 2 cube box.

We'll see what the mic says.

Yes we will. :)

I may be wrong, but all the testing I've done says that the box will be too small and tuned to high. Type-r's have a SEVERE SPL roll-off past 50 hz in every situation myself and my teammates have tested in.

But hey, what works in your car may be different than everyone elses. :)

Lets hope you gain some.

If you gain enough, how about you spare a few dB's for me too. I need them to stay competitive in S1. :(

Eh, I lost some. But then again, I don't know if it was the mic or what. You have a TL, ever notice how the judges mic is off from yours?

But yeah. . . T&T is ripping it up in S1, you better get a CRX.

Make that box bigger. ;)

And from what I can tell, my TL isn't too off from others.

And yeah, joe ault is killing me in S1. :( I'm gonna need at least a mid 154 to even think about PLACING in S1.
