Right now my box is 4 cubes tuned to 33hz. outer dimensions are 33 wide x 23 deep x 14 tall.

I have 2 12" Type-Rs, putting about 600W RMS a piece into them.

Would a different box make them louder?

I know nothing about boxes or tuning,I just build them from designs, so any help is appreciated.

Thanks..

i would tune in the upper 30s, but as far as box size i dunno what they like. im sure the size you have is good

give em a reliable 800-1000 watts and they get very loud.
and 38hz 33 is too low for them.

4 cubes sounds good, try tuning it around 38ish with about 60" of port or so.
also, adding more power would probably help more.

I was thinking about changing the tuning. Don't know tho..

EDIT: from what you're saying I guess I will get a new design then make a new box. Hopefully it will better.

port piece=17.5x12.5

I got the design from twisted. me and my friend are using it.

and 99 not really.. Ive only used em on blast a good hour total over the past 2 months.. I still got my permit and my dad likes the bass but not that loud..

x2 on the 60sq inch port maybe more if u can fit it. and maybe get a 2kw amp. im guessing its in your trunk? you can try facing it forward and sealing it off from your trunk

i think you mean 2.5" wide?

Turn your box around. With the size of your box and the subs firing back you are blocking the wave from coming back into the cabin. All of the loudest trunks have the subs firing forward.
