my friend says he has some type z speakers in his car and that they are last years model and only in europe.I asked him how many watts can they handle continous and he said 300. are there type z speakers?
I did look on alpines website and they were not on it.

yeah it has the same as american. I just don't know if for sure alpine stopped making them or my friend is lying.

Well the subwoofer models come in the following, and are pretty much the same for the other components/speakers

Type E, Type S, Type R, Type X

E being the lowest, X being the highest.

Never heard of "Type Z"

Only speakers that handle that much power and have z in the name, that I can think of, are the boston z6's.

Not sure of Type Z, but these DDLinear 2004 (http://www.alpine.co.jp/alpine/ddlinear04/index.html) definitely looks good! :eek:

I can't remember what letter it was, but in the best buy add the week before easter I noticed they had some alpine subs and was amazed, when looking closely I noticed it appeared to be a series I had never heard of. Not X,S,R and so on.. I wanna say it was a Z, I was curious but because they were at best buy I just assumed they were a lower end sub.


I just looked them up and they were type 'E' - my bad :rolleyes:
