i have had these subs in both style i like the ported box better and it also allows cool air to get in the box to keep your subs cool cause i noticed with the sealed box they would get warm

No, I'm sorry. I don't have those ones. The plastic package is torn open so I may have taken them out already but I don't remember. I still have the other allen head screws for the amp though. Like the ones used to hold the speaker wires and other cables in. Do you want me to send you those?

Sounds good! Sorry about that, I really thought I had them. Thanks for the experience on the ported in the Ranger. Looks like I'll be building a new box pretty soon...lol

hardwareman you say your subs arent loud, type r's pound. your problem is the amp you have. you have it running as a 2 channel so your sending like what under 200watts to each sub. you need to bridge the amp. and i am assuming your subs are D4's so wire each to 2ohm and then wire them together at 1 ohm, but make sure your amp can handle a 1 ohm load. or check into a hifinics BRUTUS BXi1206D it is under $200 on ebay and does 1200rms @1 ohm. by wiring them to 1 ohm you will get the most of your amp if it can do 1 ohm. the type R's rms is 550. i used to have a R and ran 600 to it daily and have run 1500 to it for a few days. they are power beasts and they need the power.

No, I did'nt say my subs are'nt loud........they're loud as hell and vibrate everything in my Ranger. The change falls out of the cupholders when there's too much in them...lol.

Yeah they are the dual voice coil 4ohm's and I have them wired to a 2ohm load which my amp feeds each one 275 watts a piece. I wish my amp was 1ohm stable but it's not. The max watts this amp will put out is 550 at a 4ohm load. It's true wattage however as RF makes pretty good amps. I don't know what they were thinking when they made these however.

I just wanted to know how a ported box sounded in a Ranger because Im thinking of building one.

Hey JakeH05,

Those subs are exactly like mine except yours are 12's and mine are 10's!

Since you have the same subs I do (only larger.....lol) can you tell me how the Type-R's sound ported and what size box that is? I know I already asked how ported sounds but you actually have the same subs I do. Thanks.

I had 2 12inch type r's in a ported box (i think it was 4 cubic feet for the pair) and it was amazing. I had 1600 watts rms going to the pair and they hit hard!

i belive ricky said they hit a 147.7
