    Which audiomobile are you looking to get? If its the EVO i would get the Alpine over the audiomobile EVO.

    See if you can't listen to both before you make your decision.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Alpine type R are really good, but you can get them for much less than 200, try www.ikesound.com or www.discountsjungle.com
    you will find them for less than 120

    Icon14 Apples and ....

    The "Type R" is comparable to our entry level EVO series (though it does not have as much Xmax nor the alloy cone or SABOT motor of the EVO.

    The MASS series is more comparable to the JL W7, as it has over 25 mm of Xmax, which is nearly 80% more then the Alpine "top of the line" subs.

    Hope that helps!

    The EVO or MASS?

    Personally, either one sonically sounded superior to the Type R I played with. It's been about a year since I've heard any of them, but I do recall that much out of the situation. The cost/performance ratio of the type r is quite excellent, but I would have had no problems stepping up to say, the mass, as the price seemed justified in the listening test.

    matthew...despite how much you have given mr. laine a rough time about being biased against you, and showing that you can be a selfish, inconsiderate ***, he just said something positive about your products...
