Question which alpine sub to get?

Hey, I'm wondering which sub would be better to get, the type r 1243d or the 1043d.
Ones a ten and the other a twelve. I dl the pdf of the manual and hey have almost the same specs, but a ten inch setup would be cheaper and smaller.
So I'm wondering if it would be worth the money to go for the 12 inch.
And also whatever u suggest, can u link or tell me what the best box for it would be? It's an ext. cab truck.
Thanks.

Good choice in sub which ever size you go with. The type R is meant for a ported box. So I would suggest that over a sealed box.

I have 2 10" Type R's in my truck.

I have 2 10" infinity subs in a sealed box...and i couldnt imagine if i had 12"...also the size of the sub depends on what kind of music you prefer. I am a rock and metal head so the smaller subs can snap back better than a 12".

I have yet to find out which ported box to run for my 10" type r as well. It sounds good in a sealed box, but a ported will be that much better. From what I have found, a 10 will hit slightly faster, but not as deep. Someone will correct me on this though I'm sure.

Thanks for the replies but I already knew i was going ported, what i meant about the box was like what kinda premade box should I get from like amazon or something. But i may have my cousin make a box, and even then I have no clue about the ports and tuning the box.

And about the 10 or 12" deal, the 12 only hits 2 hrtz lower, being 24 and the ten inch is 26 (on paper). So I was thinking that would make them be about the same. Can someone give me pros and cons of the ten and twelve?
Thanks
