View Full Version : A 15" Type-R And A 10" Type-R - Will They Mix Ok?

01-24-2007, 09:58 PM
The 15" will probably be facing the rear, whereas the 10" will be facing in the cabin, but its sorta is in the cabin. My question is, powered off one amp, would both subwoofers sound ok together? Im thinking they should because its the same brand, instead of mixing brands.

What do you guys think?

(I brought this up, because Im hearing a bunch of stuff about not mixing subs and it causes cancellations and such)

no, i wouldn't do it. no point really. I would just use one and sell the other.

01-24-2007, 10:04 PM
I would use just the 15........The 15inch Type rs get loud but hey if u got a 10 inch type r send me a pm might wanna buy

No, retarded idea. You'll get horrible cancellation and will be wasting both speakers.

01-24-2007, 10:12 PM
Haha, I didnt buy any of the Type-R's yet, I have this idea Im running through my head.

You dont think its a good idea to mix a 10" and 15" when both are just facing the other directions?

No, like I said, it's a waste of both speakers. Each will behave differently, and they'll sound different. It's a bad idea and you'll waste your money. Frankly, I don't know what you would even want to do that. If you want two subs, just do 2 12's. You never want to mix and match subwoofer sizes.

Just use the 15. A type r 15 has potential in a good street beater install.

dont mix sizes ... /thread

i know the general rule is never mix sizes but theoretically would it be possible if you had like a 10 tuned high and bandpassed from like 150-60 and then like a 15 tuned very low and set to play 60 and down. Sort of like going active but with subs?

Well of course it's possible, but it's going to sound awful because the each speaker will still be playing the given note, but since they behave differently at that frequency, it's not going to be delightful.

haha my friend has 2 older type r 12's and 2 type r 10's in his car and he used to always tell me i should put some 10's in my car with my 18

use the 15 and sell the 10..

01-25-2007, 01:27 AM
If you went active and they played different frequencies it might work, otherwise no.

01-25-2007, 01:37 AM
Even going active with the same sub would ****. If ya wanna go active with subs, make sure that the subs are designed to play well within the bandpass... The same sub, but 2 different sizes is just gay

egh, and his avatar is Fi, what a disgrace.

01-25-2007, 02:34 AM
Haha, Ive now decided to go with Fi only because I cant do the 10" and 15" Type-R idea I had.

So what, sue me.

01-25-2007, 02:57 AM
Haha. Dude, should I get a 12"?! 15"s are better right?!

lol, we all start somewhere iagrdhaka.

15"s are basically capable of playing lower frequencies than a 12. When I went from a 12" to a 15" of the same exact model, I noticed that it was a little louder, but really it just played a lot lower. Sounded nicer overall. Why do you think a 15" is more expensive than a 12"? Because the 12" sounds better? That doesnt make sense ;)

I say do it, and if you end up not liking the results change it up. Of course using different frequencies to each drive is a must. So if you don't have ample processing maybe wanna rethink this. I think you may have results that are pleasing, or may have results that are not so pleasing but at least you tried something a bit different than the norm.
