    MY box volume????

    I have 2 alpine tpe r 12's. i was wondering if it would be good to put them into a box with .88cf volume or 1.00cf volume on each side. The suggested is .75 to 1.00.

    Is bigger vloume better or smaller volume????
    thanx

    A larger box volume will help with the low end, but a smaller volume will make the subs sound tighter. with thoes subs id say go for the 1.0 cu/ft after displacement you'll still be right in that range



    1"tweets and 8"kenwoods up front 5.25" in rear arm rest and 2-12" kicker comps sealed in back.

    in my experience typers need like 2.1 minimum to sound good that is a happy medium i have heard them in a box as small as 1.2 feet b4 and it sound ok but i would say 1.5 before dissplacement would provide nice deep and tight bass
