They are actually made by Pyramid, just rebadged to say Alpine. :laugh:

Well, I'd assume they are decent. I've heard bad reviews of type R comps though.

Is this true? Site your source? I;ve heard them in person and they're alright.. but they're seriously lacking in the midbass department.

notice the little blue dude laughing... :p:


i almost got these but then i changed my mind after reading around here on the forums and went with the rainbow SLCs instead, which was a very good choice i might add (also a lil bit cheaper)

I the high end Alpine speakers are rebadged Vifa spakers. There are similar speakers avaliable for much cheaper at partsexpress.com. Fun to make your own components.

If your willing to spend that kind of money I'd say hands down either

Focal 165v2's

or

Eclipse SC8264

I'd go with Eclipse but that's just because I've heard both and was looking for the best SQ possible in that price point before and they out performed the focal's in realism.

That's my .02
