Re: shallow mount subwoofer + spl
The JL TW5 costs $100 more than the Alpine but it has good reviews and a HUGE 5" or 6" coil. Personally I would get the Alpine from a price vs. performance point of view.
But like said above loud/SPL and shallowmount subs do not mix well. The Alpine or the TW5 will have problems taking more than say, 500 watts a piece for hours on end.
