    from what i've read the Type R doesn't perform too well in sealed boxes. Go ported if at all possible.

    Re: sub box help

    it works just fine in sealed, but naturally is performs better in ported

    i've got two 10" type r's in some .66 ft^3 sealed truck boxes.

    hit HARD w/ my rf 500BD.

    match up a good amp with them and they can perform great in a sealed enclosure.

    but if you have the room, go ported

    Internal baffle for what? You will not need to double baffle it for a Type R.


    And BTW, a TCAB box is a company name. Starky runs it, and thinks he is God..
