    .7ft^3 for 10", RE vs. FI vs. alpine

    alright, this is the last thing i have to buy for my current build and i am at a standstill. this sub is going in a camaro's stealth enclosure (~.7ft^3) and am debating between these three subs.

    The amp is a PDX 1.600, the rest of the setup is CDA-9857, SPX-17REF in the doors, SPR-17C for the rear and a kenwood KAC-8452 for the speakers if any of that matters.

    i listen to pretty much everything with a much bigger emphasis on quality. I have run an alpine type R for the past two years on my old amp (KAC-9152) but recently it blew. to me it sounded like it got loud, but could never find the right settings for it.

    my list for now seems to be the following:

    RE SE10
    FI SSD10
    or another type R

    those three are also my price range, so if youve got another suggestion throw it out, as long as its not much more than the SSD.

    Ive searched and lurked for a long time and read a ton on all of these, just wanted a heads up comparison into them before i actually took the plunge

    Id say the same thing, get the re se. Actually i just bought a pair of 2 re se 12's myself. I got the newer *** model but they have pretty much the same specs as the older ones.

    The fi's would be my second choice, but considering your amp, I think you should be good with the se.

    Good choice bro, out of the 3 listed SEs will do much better sealed than the others will.
