Im new to the board and was wondering if I could get everyones opinions on these boxes .

Do you see any benifit to one over the other and if so why?

They are two options I was looking at for a Type R 10.

Personally, i would do more around 1.5 @ 30-32hz for a daily setup. And i would want more port area.

OK I was just basing them off the info in the Alpine manual, its suggested 1 cube net tuned to 35 Hz

Out of curiousity why would you run more volume then what the spec sheet says?

Need more port. Make it much wider.

with the port that small...you may have a problem with port noise.

Look for a port square area of around 16-20

Does this one look a little better? I really dont want to go any bigger, as the purpose of this single ten was to downsize the box from my 2 12's. This box is already approaching the size of the old one.

But being ported vs the sealed 12's. And a better quality sub (type R 10 vs 15 year old waveform 12's) I'm hoping to keep the output similar if not a little better with the new setup.
