    Re: mtx9500 12 or alpine type x 12

    talked to an alpine rep
    the type X is more of a SQ woofer then for spl
    so if ur looking for spl go with the 9500
    if not go witht he type X for sure.

    Re: mtx9500 12 or alpine type x 12

    type x... ive heard BOTH, the type x gets REAL loud and it is one of the best sounding subs ive heard doing it... 9500 gets loud as he// but, no sq what so ever so think about it. would u rather give up like .2 - .4 on the mic to hvae something that u can drive around and listen to that sounds awesome? id compare the type x to the diamond tdx ... a sub that can get extremely loud and sound great doing it

    Re: mtx9500 12 or alpine type x 12

    id say the 9500 is prolly like the 7500's
    a 60/40 SPL/SQ

    if u want to get a sub that sounds GREAT n gets LOUD
    get a 12W7

    Eclipse TI's are worth looking into
    but how much power are you working with?

    Umm, you should give the 9500 a little more credit than that buddy.

    Well from the setups I've heard with those Alpine Type-X's I have enjoyed every single one. The amount of wattage they need to run though isn't so much fun. They can handle 1500 watts with ease and need at least 1000 to run properly.

    The 9500 is MTX Flagship and it's a good sub and all. But I personally like the Alpine Type X because it can do everything the 9500 can do and it's cheaper as well. and if you can get one for 280 why not grab it for him. It's a great sub and will get EXTREMELY loud!!!!

    i dont want to be a schwab here or anything if the amp is the mtx thunder 942 it dont think it would work for the type X. and yes you can get the type X 250 all day.

    When I heard the MTX 9500, I was very impressed. It sounded **** good to me. They were two 12's in a Sledgehammer box.

    As for the two Type R's. Nice choice. It would be louder than one Type X. OH and they sound niiiice too. Just make sure to get the 2005 versions
