    Need some a little help on 1 12" type-r ported box

    I wanna build my own box this time around, but I wasnt sure which box would work the best

    I looked through Moe Lester's sticky on box plans, and saw this one:

    its a 1.75@32

    is there a better one I could use? its for a single type-r 12" with 600 watts running to it in a hatchback

    I'd do atleast 2.5. IMO 1.75 is around the volume needed for a 10" ported.

    in my personal op. i would go like 40. anything in the low 30's i have found best for rap for the main reason it is a lower, deaper bass. but thats just my 2 cents

    No, no, no, do NOT tune it at 40. Low 30s are the best overall compromise. I would give it around 2-2.25 cubes tuned to 30-34hz.

    Re: Need some a little help on 1 12" type-r ported box

    I just built Moe's 2.0 cubic box for my Type-R tuned at 32hz. It is AMAZING. I used to have a sealed box and this thing blows it away in the SPL department. I'm only 16 and I built this box myself. His plans are idiot-proof, and he has a few variations for different spaces. Personally, I'd go with the 2.0, it's one beast of a box. Just make sure you use silicone to seal the joints and speaker terminal cup.

    I got my plans from PV audio. My box is 2 cu. ft. tuned to 31 and it wangs pretty hard.
