    Icon32 Noob in need of a box design

    Hi guys

    Typical noob question/request I'm affraid!!

    I've recently got myself an Alpine Type R 12 (SWR1240) and am looking for a box to house it in.

    It needs to fit in the fairly shallow boot of a Mk 2 Honda CRX, the dimensions of which are as follows; 700mm/27.5in wide, 600mm/23.5in deep and 350mm/13.25in high. Ideally I would like the box to take up no more than around half of that space.

    I mainly listen to breakbeat and hip-hop at the mo', although I have a very eclectic taste in music and would like a design that would be slightly biased towards SQ, but would also like it to drop nice and low too (don't we all)


    Here's the spec for the sub from the Alpine website:

    Size: 12"
    Impedance: 4Ω
    Power Handling: 300W RMS/ 1000W Peak
    Frequency response: Fs~1kHz
    D.C. Coil Resonance (Re) 3.6Ω
    Inductance (Le) 1kHz/20kHz: 2.38mH/0.85mH
    Free Air Resistance (Fs): 26Hz
    Equivalent Stiffness (Vas): 66L
    Qms/Qes/Qts: 10.39/0.38/0.37
    X max/ X peak: 12.9mm/25.8mm
    Mechanical excursion (P-P): 55mm
    Gap/Coil height (Hag/Hvc): 10mm/35.8mm
    Cone area (Sd): 467.59cm²
    Diaphragm Material: Kevlar reinforced pulp
    Spider material: Nomex
    Magnet weight: 89.4oz
    Voil coil diameter: 50mm
    Recommened sealed box volume: 0.7~1.0 1^3

    If any of you good people could point me in the right of direction to getting myself a nice design to make the most of this sub, I would be very grateful!!
