Hey guys!
I’m wanting to turn one of my car subs into a home sub just for music and movies.
I was wondering what’s the best way to go about this?

I don’t have a box for the sub so I guess id have to get one made from someone off of craigslist.
What kind of specs should it have or anything that I should have required done to the box? Such as a port & air space.

I’m not sure how either sub would work with the receiver I have.
So please let me know which sub you think would be best match for the receiver.

I don’t know much about this stuff so all help is appreciated.
I do not want to spend much this lol.
Thanks!

What I have to work with:
- Alpine Type R 12” Sub - Model SWR-12D4
OR

- Alpine Type S 12” Sub – Model SWS-12D4

- As a receiver I have
Denon AVR-3803 Receiver


- I have two computer speakers that I am happy with, as they are very loud.

You are going to need an amp to power the sub. I don't think the receiver has a powered output for the sub. Normally they only have a "sub out" that connects the receiver to an amp that drives the sub. I'll leave the box building question to the experts

I did a build last year with a Type-R, ended up with a very capable subwoofer.
So have a look here if you'd like to give yourself an idea of whats possible.
