    15' Alpine Type R

    Who's got experience with these subs? How many did you have, what kind of box and what amp were you pushing it with?


    HOW DID IT SOUND?

    Who wants to bet it was set up entirely wrong?

    If I had a a 15' sub (ANY 15' sub) it had better be loud. Here I am running a tiny little 15 INCH sub....

    the 15's can get PLENTY loud when setup properly.

    depending on application, louder than 2 12's.

    and yes... ive used/installed all of the above.

    NEVER LOOK AT THE PEAK RATINGS!
    Heres the actual ratings for that amp-

    POWER RATINGS
    - Bridged Power Output at 12V (1kHz, 0.5% THD): 400 Watts x 1
    - Bridged Power Output at 14.4V (1kHz, 0.5% THD): 600 Watts x 1

    you have 600 watts RMS at 4ohms to work with, so you need a 600 watts RMS 15 or 2 300 watt RMS 12's.
    Keep in mind you need to be able to wire your subs for a 4ohm load.
    A pair of 12's would need to be DVC 2ohm or SVC 8ohm.
    A single 15 would need to be DVC 2ohm or SVC 4ohm.

    Go with 2 12's if you have the space for the box, they have the potential to be louder.
