Re: Damaged Type R
My buddies 12s have been taking the abuse from a Nine.1 for years and they never did that. If the damage doesn't go all the way through the surround, you'll be fine. If it does, pick up some e6000 or rubberized super glue and dap it from both sides. As far as sub recommendations, you'll want something with similar power handling unless you upgrade the amp. Look into the SA series instead of the SD. There are also TONS of other companies making a strong line in that power range including incriminator audio, obsidian audio, SSA, and many more.
