    Another Type-R Question: Box Help PLEASE!!

    Hey everyone,

    I am getting ready to build a box for my 2 Alpine Type-R 12's and wanted to ask a few questions first. ***I HAVE USED THE SEARCH FUNCTION AND LOOKED THROUGH PAGES OF RESULTS, BUT COULDN"T FIND WHAT I NEEDED!!***

    1) What should I tune the box to? I want good SPL but I want to keep SQ too. Mainly I want SPL though.

    2) What volume should I make the box? It will be going in a 1979 Z28 Camaro, so it can't be too big, but I can make it decent sized...

    3) Anything else I should know?

    Thanks for your time,
    Terminal206

    1) In mine and many other peoples opinions, tune the R's low. I'd do around 32-34hz personally. I would not tune them high for everyday driving.

    2) 2-2.5 cubes per sub. I'd shoot for about 2.25

    3) These subs love the lows. I own 2 10" R's.

    Do you think they would sound alright in a 2 cubic foot box? I think that's about all I can fit into the trunk... 2 Cubic feet each, not total...
