    Type R subs, two of them, Ported?

    Ok, I have these two subs in .7cube sealed box and I am thinking of putting them in a ported box. 12" SQL 5ft@35hz. This is the dual sub box that RE has on their web site. I was wondering if this box would be right for these two subs and what they would sound like in it. Also, what will be differant when/if I switch to this/and ported box? Let me know, thanks

    will be a dramtic change in performace. The air space is about right 4.5-5 but those r's love the lows I would tune the box allitle lower my personal imo.

    would 4ft@30hz be better?

    Re: Type R subs, two of them, Ported?

    Oh ya, I will be putting about 550watts to each sub btw.

    Ok, Question. When I say 4ft@30hz, does that mean that the internal volume is 4cuft and the port is tuned to 30hz? I am not as fimilar to ported boxs so much as I am to sealed boxes(all I've ever ran). Just tring to learn these things.
