Hi, get to it you will be happy. Sheet of mdf at my local home depot is 33 bucks + 15 bucks for glue and screws. Maybe a thing of calk. But ya 50 bucks should do it. There lots of box builds here to look though. Stick with 2-2.5 @ 30-34ish hz I was happy!

Welcome to the forum! You will be much happier with a box designed for your sub and application. But when you start doing things yourself, it becomes addicting!! Welcome to your new drug! Lots of info here, so don't forget your search box at the top.

That's how big your box needs to be for the type r. and that best buy box is not tuned to anything they just throw them together there pretty useless.

Yeah thats why I'll be making myself one, I've actually had seconds thoughts on my Type R, it doesn't hit as hard as I want, probably due to the box, but I was thinking of getting an RE SE-X 12" any thoughts on that? its cheaper than my type R too.

your running 1000 real watts if you build a box the type r is loud. You will have to be careful running 1 Of those RE there like 500-600 rms max but dont know if thats just what the box says. Never had one sorry. Someone might let ya know though.

Thanks Miller, and JJ my Type R is actually an 8ohm woofer, I have it bridged down to 4ohms which is the 600RMS, and the amp at 4 ohms does about 600rms.

Welcome to the forums, if you are really looking to upgrade your Type R, check out the Sundown SA-12, I've never used anything from sundown, but many attest to them being some of the best budget 12's around, and put 1000w to them daily.
