    Alpine 12" Type DVC Waht do YOU think.

    i hear these babys pump and pump soem more. They look smoothe, and I hear they has great SQ and SPL.

    Its a toss up between these, and the Infinity Perfect 12.1d's.

    I love infinity, but I hear there subs dont really pound, but have terrific SQ.

    And opinions from some pros that have haerd them, or
    have them would be great.

    Oh Ya, I was gonna run a Profile Clarus amp 300x2 on them. What do you think of that.

    thanks

    Is this your first sstem? with the right power, that type R will hit plenty hard, my first system had 2 of them, and i was blown away by the awesome sound wuality, and how loud they got...

    Ya Im talking about the highest series. Type R I guess is better.

    I am going to go with 2 of them, at 2 ohms, and 300RMS a piece.

    And Im going to buy them as cheap as I can get them brand new. On ebay.

    Peace bro

    If you buy them on ebay, don't hurt em. You most likely won't have a warranty.

    Hey man, don't buy that stuff yet! Check out my sig, then go to ikesound.com and notice that you can get it all for $443, probably less than what you were going to spend. And everything comes with a warranty. Run the JBL at 1 ohm because ikesound only has the 4 ohm dvc type r's. (My 600.1 doesn't even get warm, and I live in Phoenix.) So, if that is the setup you are intent on getting, go with the 600.1 and check out ikesound.com

    Pair of type-r's are radical! I heard good things about them and bad things about them, heard alot of people burnt their voice coils. I dunno how though! But anyways i had one dude with a 12" type-r, in a small sealed box, pushing it with a Alpine v12 750watt amp, i could hear him down the street. Also he told me his other friend has 2 12" type-rs, pushing them with a Jensen 500watt amp, i dunno what was the box. Cops pulled them over couple of times to turn his system down. I gotta see that to believe! But

    go for the type-rs, put them in a good box, they will sound awsome.. But i recommend getting a bigger amp for them. Just my opinion, but either way would be good!

    Guys I meant the 600.1

    I thought hte Type R's were 2 ohms, but they are 4, so I meant the 600.1

    Thanks for the help, I hope it pounds!
