    Icon32 Is the Kenwoord DB+12 Better than an Alpine R Type

    Alright, today my co-worker tells me that his Kenwood KFC-W1204DB's are better then my Alpine Type R. His are a couple of years old and he says that they where better then the current models of this speaker. Is he full of sh*t or what? His car does have quite a bit of bass but the box is ported. The SQ ?????? This argument will never end unless someone from the group settles it.

    Post any replies.

    well id say that the R's sound better look sweeter and hit harder than the db+ thats just my thought but id go with the R way before the db+ i think the R's are cheaper too so all around would be a better buy

    I've heard 4 DB+ 12's, and they got pretty loud, but I'd prefer to have the Type R. My brother just got a pair of 12's, and we put the Audiobahn Alum12x's in the same enclosure w/ the same amount of power and metered them both and the Audiobahns were .7 db's louder. The Type R's sounded so much better though, w/o the meter I would have swore that the Type R's were the loudest.
