i plan on running 4 ten inch alpine type R's, is it a bad idea to do them sealed? Sealed is all i can run so wanna get some input before i purchase them.

cant go ported, these subs will be under a back seat of a truck so very limited on getting exact space for sealed.

Port is not in the picture, not gonna happen sadly,

Any suggestions for 10's 400-500 rms or two 12's?

Phoenix gold 10" Rsdc's. Each one could be sealed down to 0.2cuft. 0.382cuft would be optimal for sq. These get pretty loud too. I really like these subs.

I've got two Type-R 10's currently but they're ported...never were loud enough for me sealed. 4 cu ft, 32 hz, 1200 watts to them //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

Put them in ~1.2 cu ft each and you'll be fine.

Type R's sound good sealed if in the proper enclosure but are not nearly as loud as if they were ported.

If you're looking for subs that love sealed enclosures and get pretty loud, I'd recommened Infinity Kappa Perfects (Not the DVQ, but if you can afford the DVQ then by all means go for it)

My two perfect 12"s in a sealed 1.8gross cubic ft box were pretty **** loud. Ask kcdc30, he heard em.
