    Phoenix Gold Ti 10 > Alpine type R 12

    wanna get two subs powered by the hifonics 1000 watt amp. I was wondering if the 10s would be better than the 12 inch type r's even though the ti's willl be lil underpowered and type r's over powered b/c of that amp.
    Do they still have the 12 inch Phoenix gold ti's?
    Is thezeb.com authorized dealers forreal? b/c i see that they pretty much are for every company and selling for very nice prices.

    Thanks guys...

    yes but if you want the 10s check ebay for dirt cheap pricing. my friend has 2 12" type r's in a sealed box with a jbl 600.1. i have 2 10" ti's in a sealed box off a 600.1 and imo and the opinions of my friends they like my setup better. the type r is not a bad sub at all though.

    i heard that with 15's you will loose some sq b/c of the cone being so big and therefore not making it move as well. Sounds like it makes sense. Cuz i still wanna have some great sq with nice spl. For the 15 inch Ti what is the recomended box size for that? im guessing it should be ported tuned to like 32 or something...

    Re: Phoenix Gold Ti 10 > Alpine type R 12

    well i leaning towards getting it ported tuning it to like low 30's mayb high 20's. i dont want it all sq cuz i want to have some good spl. i prob get the ti15d since it can go to two ohms and it be easy finding an amp that will go to two ohms with the recommended rms.

    Are these subs hard to break in? is it o.k. to over power them a bit or just have them at recommended?

    it should handle a little more than its RMS. 600 to 700 watts will do it well.



    Eclipse CD5444
    DLS R6A's -> Aura RPM2300
    sold the subs because i don't drive much anymore

    I know with the 15' it was mentioned you will loose sq because of the large cone. What about the 10' ti compared to the alpine type R is the SQ better or will it just hit harder? I looked at the stats for the alpine type R 12' and its only rated at 300 watts rms which isn't much and there both the same price also.
