i have 2 12 type s running off of directed 1200d.....that 400watt amp wouldnt be pushing a type r verry hard at all....your better off with a type s....type r needs alot of power my buddy has two of them being pushed by a direced 1500d....and they slam hard...but like i was saying 400 on a type r is point less...its almost point less on a type s....you almost need 2 or 3 type s and wire them in line to the right ohm just to get them to hit right...

well i had a kicker, it wore out in a bout a year. and then i got a type s and my 400 watts blew it out in 4 days. so im thinking type r will still hit harder, and i can upgrade amp later. is it bad to underpower though?

i had 2 12inch type r's running at 1600 watts rms and they slammed. I would get the r and get a custom ported box made. 400watts isnt gonna push it but it will work till you can upgrade

thats gonna be a little small for it. When i had my type r's sealed, i had them in that same size box but i had em inverted.

I personally didnt like mine sealed.

I used to have 2 12" type r's in a ported box tuned to 34Hz and powered by a Viper D1200.1.

good bang for buck...
