I noticed the new type r and type x component sets. Has anyone tried either of these out? Are the new type rs any better than the old ones? Is there really any changes in them?

Heres a link http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/products/series.php?category=SPKR

the cone is a different material for the woofer
the tweeter is a bit better
the main difference is in the crossover, before you couldn't really tune them, for these ones you can
I haven't heard them yet but, I don't really think there will be much of a noticeable difference


the new type X ones i really wanna hear tho :)

I havn't heard them yet either but I would sure love to hear the Type X's. If you look at what Alpine has done for the new type R coax's they have impressive rms handling.

so the woofer material changed, the tweeters better, the crossover is different and it handles more power, but it doesn't sound any different?

from what i heard they should be much better then the old ones.

X's are the same. But wow, the new R mids look like a Vifa speaker similar to the X mids. And a ring radiator tweeter too! Alpine seems to be really stepping up the R line. I'm going to have to go listen to them this weekend if the local shop has them. Very impressive specs. Hopefully they sound impressive.

Ah I see that now. Very interesting. Looks like the new R's are the old X's and the new X's are.... interesting indeed. Gonna have to go listen to those now, too.

Both XSounds and MillionBuy on eBay have the new R's for under $160 shipped. Might not be a bad deal if they are true performers.

If these new Type X speakers sound better than the previous ones...there may be no desire to spend that much on the F#1 Status.

**** those new type x's look ****
it is interesting how there is a type x PRO series and a type x REFERENCE series.
the ref series look really funky.

I have the same alpine type X comps the 6.5 ones. Yeah those lights do shine when your tweeters are about to die. It fried my cover...which I didn't appreciate but better then having a blown tweeter. The alpine type X comps are pretty decent. If anyone has a alpine type X tweeter they wanna sell me PM me. I blew one of my from installing and never even got to hear it. So i'm running only 1 type X tweeter.
