Its the Alpine Type R, and it has a strong reputation for being indestructible. Although 3 cu.ft may seem too big, with this subwoofer you dont even need to worry about air suspension.

3 cubic feet is not too big for the Type R 12...with my experience with them they love big boxes. between 2.5 - 3 cubic feet per sub is great

I'm saying accorfing to alpines recc. specs. Also is the box sealed vented or ported. I had two of these in a too big sealed box and it sounded muddy. So I guess it depends on the box

I have never heard of a 12" subwoofer in a 2.5-3 cu.ft enclosure, but yeah..its vented of course. But I need help with the blue prints. I have winisd and bass box pro 6, but I am not sure how to make a port for it.

I made a box for my friend's 12" Type-R that came out to about 2.5 cu ft after bracing and it was ported to 30Hz and it's one of the best sounding Type-R's I've ever heard. He is only running 300w RMS and everyone asks how many subs he has when they hear it. Although it is a Caddy and they probably have very good dampening from the factory which would help keep the sound in.

3cuft is not at all unusual.  I have a 12" subwoofer that requires 5 cuft for best performance.  Don't be so quick to dismiss what people say.  As far as "blue prints" programs like WinISD and BassBox are not intended to create cut sheets for you.  You may want to download BoxyCad, a free Excel spreadsheet that will determine your cuts for you if you don't know how to do that.  You'll need Excel or similar to run it.

Alpine "Spec enclosures" are to make most people happy because normal people dont want a 3 cu ft enclosure for a single 12. Most people want a small box.

Yep that is why is really pays to have a shop that knows what they are doing to build the best box for your sub. If your after the very best a woofer can offer. But like aznboi3644 said not everyone want to give up that much space for a box. I used to look at the trunk when I was looking to buy a car just for that reason. Most subs want to breath!
