Whats wrong with the type Rs? Those subs get down pretty **** good from what Ive experienced and heard at shows/ect. 10s would be very nice in that truck air space.Facing rear ported..though my opinion/experiencing inAcura trunks.Firing forward if sealing from trunk to Cabin with seats removed

Yes they do sound pretty good. I'm more concerned about the box they are in right now. It's a box from ground shaker. I heard sa12s can take a smaller box than type Rs. Or to skip the 12s and go for 10s. I had 1 type r in a box and it sounded better than two type Rs now.

Its all about the right enclosure man..People seem to think the bigger the better.Not the case.I think I proved that yesterday with my pair of 14yr old tens in my 98 Honda CRV.People try to Cramm in a 15 in a Honda Hatch expecting it to Slamm its azz off do to the size.Poorly schematics of the enclosure needed is one issue,/main issue,and air space its within is another,along with improper power supply needed to maintain the amplifiers hunger,and clipping the dogg chit by cranking the gains to hell and back and heating up destroys the life of the amplifiers without proper air circulation.Two tens in approx3-3.5 [email protected] approx. 32-38 htz should sound pretty nice in that car,enough to make your hair stand up with proper deadening,and amplification man.
