    nothing is going to 'pound' that hard until you get the correct box for them.

    what he said!
    you need to get a custom box built. I've run CVRs before and in a prefab they weren't all that loud but after I built a custom box, it was like day and night.
    IMO, at any rate, those CVRs can get louder more easily than those Alpine Type R's; But, the type r's will take more power and sound cleaner and can get just as loud in a box built to specs.

    Re: alpine type r subwoofers

    to be honest, if you didnt like the CVRs in that exact setup, simply swapping for Alpine Type Rs more than likely wont get you louder.

    Re: alpine type r subwoofers

    if i increase my wattage like say get a bigger amp would that make a difference or get a bigger alternator would that help? i mean are the alpines a better quality subwoofer then the kicker?would the alpine do better as far as spl or db's?

    Re: alpine type r subwoofers

    Getting a bigger amp would be a good start, just one mono block to run them all. But dont change amps until you decide what subs you want and at what ohm you will be running
    If you are just after DB's then I'd stick with the CVRs (out of those 2 choices, atleast)
    If your voltage isnt dropping too low as it is, a High output alternator probably wont make much difference.

    Why limit yourself to best buy subs though? Search around on here and see what subs are good. Especially for what best buy is probably charging you.
    SSA DCons will do very good for example

    Re: alpine type r subwoofers

    CVRs are 75 each online.
    Type R's are like 120 each online.

    SSA Dcon here! DCON-12 D4 only 125 each and will get just as loud if not louder than those CVRs and sound better.

    P.S. its all in the box, you can compete with CVRs or type R's if you have them setup right.

    Pics of the box.
    Do you know what the box is tuned to?
