    Alpine Type R vs. JL Audio W3 vs. Infinity 1230W

    I've been contimplating these 3 subs as my final choice. I was thinking about getting 2 new 12's because I can just use my sealed box. Its 1.5 per side for reference. Between the 3 subs listed how would they compare to each other, strengths and weaknesses. And also, which would be the best buy, basically all costing around 100. Right now Im using 2 12" pioneer 305DVC subs and I want hear a noticeable difference. Also, I was looking at the Kicker L5's but thats an afterthought I dont wanna have to change the box out. So let me know if you think any of these subs are worth the change out and if you think its worth it to go all out and get the L5's let me know that as well!

    Re: Alpine Type R vs. JL Audio W3 vs. Infinity 1230W

    in my opinion i would go with the infinity 12s but not the 1230 i would go with the 1232 dual vioce coil thet sound better and if you look harder you can find them for less then 70 dollars each the alpine are great subs but ive blown 3 sets of type rs and not the 100 dollar one the expensive ones thAt cost between 150and 200 , everybody here are kind of stuk on what they have is the best if your on a buget get the 1232 if not get the jl they have a better name and nobody going say you picked the wrong kind of subs . i have the 1232 they sre sq subs but with the right sealed box they will hit well beyond there worth

    i'd go with the type r's or the w3's if they were v2s. But, yeah...i'd leave the infinities last...just not up to par with the other choices. peace

    depends on what you want... if your going for somthing that sounds good then infinity/w3v2/type r... if you just want loud then drop infinity to the bottom...

    Re: Alpine Type R vs. JL Audio W3 vs. Infinity 1230W

    I've never heard the infinity's so I can't say anything about those. But if the price is similar, I'd go with the JL w3v2s.

    I own the Type R's and love them. But the only reason I didn't get JL is because I live in Canada, and the store that sells them charges 350 CND each and I got my Type R's for 230 CND each. I couldn't justify the extra cash.

    pricewise, the infinitys are the best deal.. but your compairing them to speakers that are about 200ish each, whereas you can have about 3 infinitys refrences for that... if i were you i would look into the perfects... sounddomain has them on sale for like 150 each... not the new vqs... they sound amazing and hit hard... and are still cheaper
