    OptimumBox for my type S

    Well thanks to spkrman i have a nice 12'' type s on the way to my neck of the woods.

    It should be here in the later part of next week so my question is to all you type s owners or if you have owned one.What were the box specs you built to???

    the alpine site says Optimum Vented Box Volume : 1.5 cu.ft. but doesnt say what freq i should tune it too.

    Being that i have got many differnt answers on this from differnt sources such as spkrman says 2.2 cf tuned to 28 hz < unknown port size and area

    my installer buddy says 1.5 tuned to 33 with a 1.75'' port width and 30 inches of port area

    and me oh ya i have no Fvcking clue now

    oh ya im going for 50 spl 50 sq

    with no worries about space and the single sub will be getting 250 rms @ 4ohms

    space is also not a problem

    main goal is to get loud and sound good will i need a really efficent box to get loud from one 12?
