No, Type R's are solid subs for beatn' around town. They last forever as long as you don't do dumb **** like have your box unloading or your bass boost set at a bajillion
The shop where I'm going to have everything done, actually recommended the Type R's.
They did have a single Focal 13 in a really small ported box (came that way from Focal) that sounded decent, but in the demo room everything sounded good. I guess I'll have some leeway to swap speakers and boxes in and out while I'm there, but there's the possibility of something that they might not sell, being better for my needs.
A few buddies are die hard JL guys and they're insisting that I should go with W7s but I think it's more than I need and the amp I have in mind would be too small to even drive one of them so....
JL is too expensive. You can find better for your money.
Alpine - ASE (local) - Batcap - C&D Tech - CT Sounds - DC - eD - Excessive Amperage - Rainbow
You should see the retail on the Focals for the doors!
Yeah well he's got a set of used W7 10's that I can get for a buck a piece, but no guarantee.
Install is gonna cost me a case of beer and dinner, but I have to help.
Paying a little more than $250 for the splits, and less for the co-axials. I just need to figure out the subs.
