Personally, I like Rockford more as a company.

I'd try out the Subtilis VVX. The 12" is like $130 and they'll even build an enclosure to your specs for like $40 more. Tough to beat a deal like that...

2010/2011 Rockford P3's, hands down.

They claim 600wrms, but that is very conservative. We have one at work hooked up to a RF T1500bd and it keeps it's cool even under load, don't even smell voice coil. We sell them for $308 in a Rockford slot port enclosure, very well worth it. Metal cone = solid bass

Rockford fosgate. I have 2 p3s and ive compared them to several alpine type r's (friends are alpine fans). Powering my rf's at 500-600 rms a piece they blow the type r's out of the water spl wise every time. sq for the rf is average and alpine has the advantage, but if you want spl go rf. i paid 240 for the pair, and a year later they sound as good as they day i bought them

And the last post before me was from October 2011. Now users browsing this review have not only another opinion to help them but one that may take into account newer models of both companies.

I've been on this forum for a year. I know most people dont like rf but i was just giving my experience compared to alpine. Better spl worse sq. The subs cost 120 a piece so obvi they arent very high up but compared to similiar alpines i like rf. Just my opinion :)

in every aspect of performance, the type R does edge out the fosgate. Durability, build quality, power handling, etc. I sell RF and know the capabilities of almost every one of their products. You can get type R's for around 125 or so new as well.

As far as a good suggestion, I would definately say to take a look at the obsidian audio stuff. They have the same RMS power handling (although you can push those limits easily) and they are definately in the big boy league of audio equipment. They also don't cost much more than the RF/Alpine stuff.

ive own both and the two are about equal. I honestly can not tell a discernable difference between them. id recommend anyone deciding between these two fine subs that you choose the one that is cheaper.
