    Alpine Type R Blown Voice Coil

    One of my subs is blown (I think bad voice coil). I was wondering what the BEST but also cheapest route to go would be??? I sent a request in to fix my speaker . com. Should I allow them to fix it, or should I go with a new sub altogether?

    Yea thats a pretty decent amp man ..ditch the good type r ,,and buy a american bass xfl .. And have someone build you a custom box and it will be louder and sound better than both those type r.s...they r 182 bucks new..amazing for the money

    Re: Alpine Type R Blown Voice Coil

    Those less-than-$200 subs you were suggesting? which would those be? The guy who hooked them up for me wants me to get an RE to run in place of the blown one....they pretty much exclusively sell those at their audio shop here.

    I would not get anything from RE unless it's older stuff. Check out Obsidian Car Audio
