    Are you shooting for SPL or SQ, or a mix of both?

    I loved my Type R's, but I would have to second the question in the post above. I hear the eclipses have great SQ for the money.

    Eclispe will win hands down, they cast more, but thats for a reason, the cone is much better, and in the right box with enough watts, they can put out plenty of SPL

    Check out www.ikesound.com because they have 12" Type R's for $115 a piece, dual 4 ohm configurationg. If you wire them right, you can give them each a 2 ohm load.

    well if you want to get technical, 1 sub will always be more accurate and have better SQ than two

    yeah so if he is only worried about SQ, then the single Eclipse would be much better, but if he has the SPL bug in him then he will take the two Type-R's for more SPL
