    do NOT get alpine type-Es....terrible subs IMO....you wont even notice a difference between those and the 4000s...in fact i bet the 4000s are better.

    how many watts RMS is your amp? is it 600w RMS or max?

    I have the 4000's and my friends got the type-e's. We both have trucks, so they are in truck boxes, mine getting about 125 a piece and his running off a 600.1 (well, they were until he fried the amp and the subs, i told him to turn the gains down, but what do i know?). Anyways, both him and me agreed that mine were better sounding. Although i think the type-e's may get down a little deeper. I don't think you'll notice a difference though.

    look at a pair of alpine type-s 12s...best subs out there for the price and they will get pretty loud with that much wattage...they can take about 300wattsRMS...check for them on ebay (about 70 bucks a piece). good luck.

    why cant ur 600 watt amp be enough for 2 10's type r's, wouldnt u give 300 watts to each sub with ur amp? the RMS of those subs are 300.

    You could, but you'd have to probably max the amp out to get the subs moving to their full potential. Then you risk frying the amp from clipping. You'd be better off just getting the bigger amp and keeping the gains down. Besides, getting the bigger amp lets you upgrade your subs later.
