    Depends on what your idea of "better" is. The Comp VR gets decent loud and sounds decent. The Type-S doesn't get quite as loud but sounds pretty good.

    Re: kicker comp vs alpine type-s in SQ

    I am not sure without knowing what box they are in, but I would have to say Alpine type S in most areas, but teh Comp VR will out pound it EASILY.



    Current setup...
    Infinity 6.5s
    Infinity 6x9s
    Alpine Car Alarm for $14.00 installed (Workin at CC)

    Future Mods:
    Alpine 9825
    Speakers
    Some Amps
    More subs than my car can handle (Four)
    Hydraulics on a Stratus? Sure why not...

    I believe he's talking about the Kicker Comp, not CompVR. If thats the case, then take the type-s. A CompVR is more comparable to a Type-R.



    1989 GMC Sierra ext. cab:

    Sony F-5000 cd player
    (2) Infinity KAPPA 4x6 plates
    Sony GTX-4600 amp
    (2) SonicFX D15s in a 7 cube box, tuned to 35hz
    Hifonics Brutus 1500

    One of my subs is inverted; it adds 10 DBs!

    install depandant, and userdefination of SQ which would sound better...to some,more bump in a system sound better, to some, a flat line sounds good...so....

    Re: kicker comp vs alpine type-s in SQ

    personally, i wouldn't get either one.....


    i'd get the memphis power reference....gets louder then the comps (vr or otherwise) and sounds better (totally subjective)....better warranty then both.


    but if i had to choose between those two..i'd get the comp vr...then the type-s..then the comp.





    check into the pr's..u can get a pair for $150 (depending on size)....best mainstream budget sub on the market!IMO







    wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    i have the PR subs, but i would rather have the Type R's , but of corse i love SPL. BUt i do not have the PR in a sq type set up. THey do not need as much power as the Type R's tho.

    the pr's are indeed extremely efficient..i have mine off 70wrms and most ppl think there is quite a bit more in my truck.



    again, for the money, u can't beat the pr line of subs..IMHO
