also, we would need to know what vehicle it's going in, ported or sealed, tuning, amp, wiring, etc.

type r's love a bigger box, tune it to about 35 hz with about 1500-1800 rms to both subs and should slam pretty nice

I've had experience with 2 R's in a little over 5 cubes tuned to 30hz with over 1000-1200 each and was loud as hell! but they will get stinky quick on low notes! :crap:

between 5.4 and 5.8

tune 34-36hz

and do 35-40 square inches of port per sub

I also noticed that with my previous box i built. It was around 32-33hz and i wasn't satisfied at all
