Info on Type R 12?

I have two Type R 12's, dual 4ohm coils on each.

I'm trying to design a box for them, but I need some information first.

The program I'm using requires me to fill out this form, and I don't know what half of it means, so I couldn't even look it up if I tried, haha.

Could someone help me out? A capture of the form is attatched.

Okay, thanks. That's the most efficient box for 2 Type R's?

If it's not too much trouble, I'm interested in knowing how you come up with that?

I know how Sketchup works, haha, but I mean the proportions and such, what's the formula?

Thats probably before woofer displacement so tuning will change. Youll want to take that into consideration.

no, this is after woofer displacement.

i use WinISD to create my subwoofer enclosures. then i use the rockford fosgate enclosure calculator to determine the airspace and dimensions needed to make the enclosure. the above blueprint has been used in a system before and worked great off 800rms. it gets down low really well and matains good balance up the hz range

Okay, cool. Thanks a lot. Do you happen to have the woofer info for WinISD though? That's what I'm trying to use, but it doesn't have a preset for Type R's, so I need to put all that information in manually.

Trust jalat's design, he's the one who gave me the box design specs for my 10" Type-R, and it sounds awesome.
I can only imagine what two 12's would sound like, with the right box.

Jalat knows his . Trust his box design. he uses all the same programs I do and I haven't seen one mistake in any of his designs yet. keep up the good work Jalat.

also you know you can get all those specs on the alpine site right?

Oh, I trust him. I'm in the process of building the box now. :] I appreciate sharing the design a lot! I'll let everyone know how it sounds when it's all done!

Actually, I just remembered that my 10" Type-R came with a booklet that had the specs for all the Type-R's.
If you still want to play with WinISD, the specs are as follows, for the SWR-1242D:

Qts: 0.47
Vas: 45L
Fs: 29Hz
Re: 3.7+3.7ohm
Le: 3.71mH @ 1kHz / 1.67mH @ 20kHz
Xmax: 18.2mm (.0182m)
Z: ?
Qms: 7.89
Qes: 0.50
SPL: 85dB
Pe: ?
BL: ?
Diam: .275m (mounting diam?)
Sd: 480cm^2

I couldn't find some of the specs you needed, and some may need converting...
