Right now i have a terminator sealed box that I have my mtx subs in and i just bought type r's and they. Are a little bigger and take up more room in the box so does that make a difference in sound? Is it ok to use with my r's? Or should I build a box? If i build a box can i make it any size i want? Thanks for the help

I would have someone design an enclosure for your needs and try to built on your own.

The Alpine subs won't take up enough space to make an audible difference but you would be amazed at how much better they would sound in a proper ported enclosure.

^^ spot on.... u can get away with it, but to get the most out of your sub/amp setup it's worth paying some1 to design you a box and send you a cut out template

12" and I think i want sealed cause they are smaller. Does ported make a big difference compared to sealed?

It makes a huge difference in the output of the sub with ported being the better of the two. And I think there is a thread here with a ton of free designs.

If you want to design it yourself you can get a free download of google sketchup, its really easy to use. Just find your airspace reqs and port reqs and draw away.

I watchd a couple of videos on YouTube by a channel called car fabrication. He does a tutorial on sub enclosure drawing using sketchup. I learned a lot. Recommended.

You can also google "how to design a subwoofer box" or something similar and there is a walkthrough on how to use Torres Box Design Calculator, and how to draw it on Sketchup.
