    Icon32 Need advice please...

    I know most of you prefer to build your own boxes but I was looking at the ALPINE 12" Type-R Compound Reflex Subwoofer Box SBR-122CR and wondering if it's a good deal.

    The reviews that I have read on that woofer are great and you would think that Alpine should know how to engineer a box to maximize sound quality. The cheapest price I have seen is $179 which sounds pretty good considering the money and time I would spend on my own design.

    I have a Rockford Punch 400x1 @ 4ohms. Is this enough amp for this speaker?

    Thanks much for the help!

    If you get your mind set on building a box, you should be able to cut and assemble in one day, and glue in another. The total price for a box should not exceed $50. If it's worth the money to you to buy a box, make sure the dimensions are accurate for your sub and have at it.
    That is a good amp for that particular sub. you should experience excellent sq
