Hey guys, New to the forum.

Im going to be doing a build tommmorrow on my free time. I've been trying to design a sub box for my truck.

Its an extend cab S10 and Has a 12" Sealed box but I want to go ported. I have the demmsions I Couldn't figure it out using the REaudio box calculator to fit nicely in my Truck.

I plan on building to the stock specs for this Type S. I wanted to know if anyone has built a box for this sub. Its the newer version. I think has almost the specs of the old type R's

Here is what the recommend

External Box Dimensions 22.5" x 12.5" x 14"
Gross Internal Volume 1.67 ft
Vent Area 12.5²ft (12.5" x 1")
Vent length 18"
Vent Displacment 0.22 ft
Net Internal Volume 1.4 ft
D2 :32 hz, 4.4dB

I would give you the link to it but it doesn't allow me to :( sorry

Heck I would be willing to force that square box in there too. Any help would be appreciated.

I got 1 12" Type S, Its being powered up at on a 2ohm load at 680 RMS The amp is a JBL 2 channel Amp (I'll get the specs in the morning.)

I also have an alpine M500 that I can use from my other car.

Its a 2000 Chevy S10

I like my loud bass to show off. But I got to have my sound quality.

I already have my Mids and High's done (Pioneer 2 way 6 1/2 door speakers and 3 way dash 4x6's) Powered by a 4 channel pioneer 760w amp.

I'll send pics in the morning

dump the 2 ways , get components .do a ported box 34 hertz subs up port up to the drivers side will be the loudest and sound the best.also i'd do aero ports not a slot.

Ok so I got a tube from my pop's today. Its about 1.25" diamater and about a foot long.

I made a box earlier with these dimensions but because of the L port I lost Internal Volume so right now here are my specs.

W 24"
H 14.5"
Top Depth 8"
Bottom Depth 12"

3/4 MDF

Internal Volume is about 1.269 ft

But I removed the L port just now and used a box calculator and found it to be 1.439.

Should I just make this box sealed and make another or could I use this tube that my dad gave me to fix it?

If I do I place it on the side or just shoot up ward?
