    also, we would need to know what vehicle it's going in, ported or sealed, tuning, amp, wiring, etc.

    type r's love a bigger box, tune it to about 35 hz with about 1500-1800 rms to both subs and should slam pretty nice

    I've had experience with 2 R's in a little over 5 cubes tuned to 30hz with over 1000-1200 each and was loud as hell! but they will get stinky quick on low notes!
