    Need box for my Alpine Type R's

    Ok I got 2 alpine type r's in the mail. I will be running a hifonics 1500 got a really good deal on it so it will do for now. Anyways I want to go ported since everything says these sound really good ported. Alright I was going to do the prefab thing but I think I will just build it myself.

    I have all the tools I need just need a write up on how to do it. Also if anyone knows what I should tune it at and the dimensions of the box that would be great. Alright thanks alot.

    that should bump pretty good.

    what're the max dimensions of the hatch in your probe?

    with that amount of power you could probably do a slightly bigger box if you have the room.

    How does his power have anything to do with the box size?

    Here is one guide.

    One piece of advice. DO NOT USE RADIO SHACK TERMINALS. Just run the wire straight through or use bolts.

    Bigger box = less power handling. Smaller box = more power handling.

    Matt is on point, but it is also factored in on the design....which explains why Matt is on point.

    Re: Need box for my Alpine Type R's

    OK I got about 36 inch width with about 16 inch height.... Here is a plain that I have though about.... Just tell me if its going to work and will bump good? I will be getting supplies tomorrow. Also I should just ask for the 1 sheet of mdf (medium desnsity fiberboard) and that should be enough right? Alright give me some more tips on what to get while at Lowes.

    Heres the plains.... ????
