How would 1 12" Type R ported be compared to 2 RE12's sealed. Same power for both. Kicker 250X2 amp (500X1).

i would say that two re 12s would be louder. two subs cover more surface area than one.

not necessarily
1 R = 500wrms
2 RE = 175wrms x2 =350

should be close but i'd give the R a slight advantage .....

wattage doesnt matter when it comes to different subs its the sesitivity level of the sub that matters. Some subs that are designed to reach full excursion with 150 watts might get louder then a sub that will hit peak with 500 watts. This does not stand true for every case but in this case I would have to go with the RE's.

jack is there any way you can upload a picture of your enclosure. i had mine in slot port first and it sounded okay but when i changed it to sealed it was way better. i am thinking maybe my ported box sux. i would like to see what kind of an enclosure you are using.

I'd go with the type R in the ported box. In a sealed box, I don't think 250W would be enough to make those subs do anything.
