View Full Version : Box for 12" Type R

09-11-2009, 10:08 PM
I am thinking of building a box for my 2 12" Type R Subs. Currently have a Bassworx box. The size I am thinking of is External dimensions of 40"x16"x18". I will be using 3/4" MDF but doubling it up, so 1.5" width. The Internal dimensions per chamber will be 17.75"x13"x15" with a port that is 1.75"x13"x23.3" that is tuned to 33hz. I will be using 3/4" for separating the chamber and the port. Just curious if that sounds good for a box. Will be putting it in a 04 Sentra.

Why two layers of 3/4" mdf? Bit overkill isn't it?

Type-Rs don't warrant two layers of 3/4".

I would do 5 cubes for the pair, 80in^2 port. 3/4" MDF is fine. Brace with wooden dowels or threaded rod.

type r's sound great in .3^3ft tuned to 56hz with 10" of port.

I personally prefer them in .2 @ 11hz, compact and drops fairly low.
