    type r's are nice for the money for shizzle but be sure to get a good deal, its easy to get over charged for alpine.

    I heard Boston rally 6 inch splits against Alpine 6 inchers and the difference was amazing they can handle so much more power, they are are crazy.. I was thinking all alpine also but when i heard those splits i was stunned.. Go out and find some i highly recommend its worth a look.

    Re: Alpine speakers

    I am running all Alpine:

    Head Unit CDA-7995, this unit is running my Type S 6/9's and my Type S 5 1/4 in my doors.

    Alpine MRD-M500 AMP is running my Alpine R 15. The amp runs the R15 nicely if all the settings are set right.

    Depending on what head unit you are running you may be able to run your speakers off the head. I am running my 6/9's and my 5 1/4 off of my head.

    Those speakers must get pretty loud considering how much power they're getting. I mean ****, the 7995 doesn't even have an internal amplifier. :thumbsdow
