Personally I was never impressed with the Type-R until the 05 model...more power handling, better design, better SQ and best of all...it gets way louder. I just did an install with a single 05 12" Type-R in a ~1cu-ft (large box for a type-r) sealed box. Put a refurb. Viper D600.1 sending 420-450rms to it and its one of the best subwoofers I've ever heard that's under $200. Gets extremely loud (Especially down low with such a big sealed box) and the SQ is amazing in it. Good thing is it didnt cost much at all...

Box - $15 (Built it ourselves from 3/4" MDF)
12" '05 Type-R - $105
Viper D600.1 - $122
eFx 4ga wiring kit - $40

Total for some bump - $282

Not bad eh? Blows away those stupid $300-$350 Rockford Punch Stage 3's they sell in boxes at Best Buy.
