    Alpine Type R question

    Hi guys,new here and hope someone can help me out. I purchased a 12" 2+2 Type R last weekend and built a slotport enclosere to Alpines spec's. It sounds decent but I still think it will perform better in a diff. enclosure. I scanned the box designs and found this one.

    It will be in a 06 Mazda 3 HB facing the rear of the car. Im pushing a Kenwood amp rated at 500x1 (so probably 350-400 watts true power?) and the sub is wired so the amp sees 4ohms.

    I'd say it's the amp thats holding the sub back. Get an amp that does 1k watts and then see how you like it.
