View Full Version : Integra ~ 2 10" Type R's. Suggested direction/tuning/size of enclosure?

08-19-2009, 10:10 PM
Alright, I picked up a pair of 10" Type R's in a tiny sealed box.
I'm gonna have someone build a new box for them in the upcoming weeks and need to decide the approach. Aiming for around 80% SPL/20% SQ.
I don't care about saving hatch space. I'm used to not having it.

1) What is the ideal direction for sub/port?
I've read a couple threads and got mixed opinions. I'd like to hear from some experienced folks what works best here. I'm leaning towards sub up/port back.

2) Recommended tuning?
I personally haven't owned R's. Aiming for 80/20 mix so Im guessing 36ish?

3) Size of enclosure?
Im limited to 30" Width for over half of the hatch, so it can't be an outrageously large enclosure. I was thinking 3cf? Maybe 3.5 if it fits?

Thanks in advance guys, your always helpful.

in all of my research Ive almost always read subs up port back is the best for spl in integras

Type R's sound the best to me at around 33-35 hz Going to a lower frequency would smooth the peak out of the response.

Thanks guys.
Looks like I'll be going sub up/port back around 34hz

Yeh id stick around 35hz....they get loudest around there for me.

I might try subs back port side also.....thatll sound nice in a hb
