    Re: Type R Prefab Box

    Well I have 4 subs but the shop I bought them from says that I can't fit them in a ported box. After seeing this box I'm pretty sure I can with this design. Anyone know where to find a good box with this design for 4 12's? Or will sealed be good enough? Also They will be going in a 95 Caprice, powered by 2 Phoenix Gold Xenon 1200.1 Onyx Edition Amps if that helps.

    Re: Type R Prefab Box

    Well I already have the equipment. Beside right now I have 2 Ti15d's in a big ported box and I don't think 2 12's could outperform them.

    If you spend the time/money to glass a proper enclosure, you will be should be able to fit them ported, that is a big *** trunk...

    As to the prefab, it looks like **** to me. Very small for a ported enclosure, the tuning is probable mid 40's or so and you will not get to see what the R's can do.

    Many will for a small fee, but you must give up dimensions first.
