    Another vote for the Type Rs here.

    I decided to skip to the last page after reading the first one and wanting to throw my laptop across the room.

    I agree with you there but I don't like the way the new type R's sound. I have a friend with 2 of them 12 type R's and they just don't have the sound quality I like. I'm going to wait til the 2014 type R's come out and see what those sound like. I liked the old gen type r's and I was disappointed with the new type r's.

    Because the box is subpar.

    I just had a pair of the new 10s and they sounded very nice. Better than my previous gen type r 10s.

    The box makes the sound. Some do better then other with certian tunes but you can tailor it for the most part. I'm sure his box is way to small, tuned to high, minimal port area.

    Re: Alpine type s vs. Kicker CVX

    So any updates on the subs you ordered? I've dealt with type r's in the past and they we're ok. I recently sold two 10" cvx's. They we're pushed with1400 watt hifonics power and it seemes like they sounded cleaner Imo. I recently heard two15" type r's in custom box and they really moved some air. But then again, that's two 15's in a custom box with lots of power..

    Re: Alpine type s vs. Kicker CVX

    Not new but a lurker but I would of went with sd sa's ,ssa dcon or gcon,Ia lethal injections, or tantric ld or md's evn though Ive never tried the tantrics yet.
    They will all take rated power n then sum cleanly,I liked my 1k rms pioneers as a temp set up when im inbetween builds but i paid 70 for both new from a friend.
    But the way they sound is pretty much box dependent, please dont put what u chose in a crappy prefab.Get a box tuned to ur music tastes and decide what u like better since u ordered both sets.

If not then I might as well lol.
    Lol at underpowering comment and worrying that much on somethihg you won't be getting just from impedence rise alone among other reasons.

    Re: Alpine type s vs. Kicker CVX

    Are these champion pros that good?
    Had a set of champions, they sounded great. Even in a bad box.
    Have a 12 pro sitting around never mounted, (nfs) and didn't end up using it because I found a 12" Audiopipe txx that was still stiff and new, and if i remember correctly Audiopipe had more xmax at .551"

    Considering making a compact 2-10 box for a REAL small trunk space and thinking about going with a set of 10 pros. Guy isn't huuuuge on sq, but I do know these sound good.
