    Help, opinions, and expertise needed!

    Alright so right now i own two 10" type r's (not the newest but not the oldest. they handle 500w each) these are in a decent bandpass box at the moment. I am constantly buying and turning over subs for money so i would like help deciding if i should keep the type r's.... or sell them and buy something else. i am looking for a pretty high spl sub with hopefully a decent amount of quality to it. So, if it were you what sub would you buy while staying pretty reasonable. I like alpine and JL and am familiar with them, but i know there is much more outside that little box. So in summary what could i get that is better than my alpines for just as much money or less. any brand....but something i could find used is always nice.

    Thanks!

    They're a great balance between SQ and SPL, especially for their price. Just don't expect to push more than 1000w to each

    It's hard to say... The 15 would have more cone area, but the 10s would have more motor force. The 15 would most likely be louder on the same power though

    It should. Just make sure to measure where you want to put it, and also measure any openings before making/ordering a box

    And 2 12s would be louder than a single 15
