Ok going to be putting infinity plate 4X6's in the rear of my truck. Still a little undecided on the 6.5's in the front. In your guys oppinion should i go for the pioneer revs or the alpine type R's. Have a 300watt 2 channel pyramid amp too so guess i shoud go for component yes/no?? Gonna be guying off ebay soon so lemme know asap what you think or if i should go a totaly different way. And the type of music ill mostly be listening to is metal/rock if that makes a difference.

Go for the type R components, I would say to use the Rev's if you did not have an amplifier.

on ebay it seems the type R's are cheaper than the revs though.

my vote goes for the REVs the revs are clean crisp and very smooth, those will be my next pair of comps. im a type R fan, but the revs take it, in this battle. i dont believe the type Rs compare to the revs, if u havent heard both sets, then y take sides????

You should be able to demmo these speakers at A & B = Alpine and Beam Riders = Pioneer.

Asking someone's opinion is a good start, but if you can listen for yourself, you should do it.

the type r sound very good on some music, and not so good on some. I would say go with the revs as they seem to be better overall.

listening to them in person, the revs seemed alot clearer then the type r's. i personally think the type r's don't even compare to the rev's. IMO all you are getting for the price of the type r's is the ALPINE name and not sq.

i heard some Rev components and Coaxials today, and they are by far the best sounding comps i've heard ina while, the coaxials sounded great too, the combo of both (comps = front stage coaxials =rear fill) would sound AMAZING, my next comp set for sure

best coaxial i have used. i ran a set in my cobra up front, then i went to dynaudio components. the rev coaxials are loud and clean. my zapco guy only uses those in boats. the best sounding system i have heard, which i have talked about before had three treo tsx 10"s with a c2k 9.0, and eight pioneer tsd-170r's (oversized 6.5") with two zapco 750.2's. best sounding highs and mids and bass i have ever heard. that boat just flat out rocks.

The type R's can't even begin to compare to the rev series.IMO the type R's sounded way too muddy and mushy for the type of music I mostly listen to.Their type s coaxials are great but the R's just ****.

I have type S coaxils, imo, they are way down the road from the type Rs. they distort at pretty average volumes (for me) and the bass is not even near to the type Rs. The R's are more acoustical then the S's.


But going back to the original post, did you get those revs?

my top choice in coaxials. refer to my other posts about the revs, i always refer to the rev coaxials. look in this thread, i mentioned them.

I'm not a fan of the Type R tweets...very harsh without proper EQ'ing...

type r

no way, they physically cant hang with the revs. they just cant do it, the revs go above and beyond the r's without distortion. plus, i think anyway, that the revs sound better.

My vote goes to the REVs. I wasn't too impressed with my type-r's, harsh tweet and the midbass was kinda muddy.
