    Designing my cab box, help me out please

    2 x 12" Type-R Dual 2ohms / Autotek 1400d (Hopefully )....

    Ok, I am going to make a box similar to the pictures but, i have a few questions

    If I submit my truck cab specs, can you use your box program to give me the cut requirements?

    Should I divide each sub and port each of them or should I keep them both together with no division and port it ?

    Is there a better way to calculate how big the box shuold be ? I was just going to make it fit my ext cab nicely..?

    Should I add some silicone to the screws or screw holes when I install the subs and mount the amp on the box?

    Should I put anythign inside of the box like that white foam stuff I see them use in pre fab boxes?

    Will carpeting the box or painting it help the sound at all ?

    Any help is appreciated.

    don't need to in a ported enclosure, you can add some later to see if you like the sound better.
