    type r sealed

    right now i have 2 12s in a prefab i have only 38wide X 16 high X 18 deep to work with so im thinking of going sealed for my 2 type r 12's '04 pushed by a rockford 750s 2 channel

    should i just make my box to fit that

    also should i do 1 or 2 chambers

    Re: type r sealed

    Im dealing with type-r box questions myself right now, so i dont know how much help i can be, but i think for sealed, you would want seperate chambers so the subs are "fighting" each other. Alpines manual tells you the "optimum" diamentions of a sealed enclosure for one sub. I would just double that up and let them share the center baffle.

    I suppose you can do as many or as few as you like. But yeah just give them each the recomended space and have them share the center wall.

    go ported you will be much happier, plus requires less power for more output.

    Negative. You want separate chambers in a sealed enclosure so that the drivers aren't fighting each other.

    Re: type r sealed

    if you are dead set on going sealed the recommended specs per sub is .7cuft-1cuft

    i would definately go ported if you have that much space... i have moe lester's 4.4cuft ported box tuned at 32hz and it is ****** to say the least! check it out, there is a thread that is labled box plans and it is sticky'd at the top of this forum... that is what i would do if you have the space.

    Re: type r sealed

    And to add my $0.02 to this thread there have been user after user after user reporting considerably less than positive results running Type Rs in a sealed configuration.

    I have no experience with any model of the R myself but all the press on them would indicate that they much prefer a vented alignment.
