    If you aren't abusing the subs and if you aren't porting them you won't realize the advantages of the SA line -- if you think you may up your power and/or run them ported later the SA is a great choice.

    Out of "large company" drivers in this class the Type-R is one of the best.

    But be warned - some people like the sound of Type Rs in a sealed box, but others don't. I've personally never heard them in anything other than a vented enclosure, but that's just what I've heard.

    What? Type-Rs seemingly can't get enough power.
