View Full Version : New Sub/Amp: Design help needed

06-12-2010, 03:43 AM
I just got an Alpine 12" Type-R sub, capable of handling 500 watts RMS. The amp (Alpine MRP-M500) should work well with it. I'm going with a ported box, but I'm confused with it. I read some of the sticky's but how do you tune the hz? Why do you do it? And how do you actually, and properly, build a ported enclosure? If someone could explain the significance of "tuning" things, it'd help a lot. And also, how to tune it.

Shoot me a PM and we can talk designs.

And maybe even help working on it, I see you're from Wisconsin too.
