    Depends, better how? Sound quality? Output? Value wise? Price Wise?

    And are you limited to those brands? Cause there are a TON of subs "better" than the Type-Rs by companies like IDMax, Diamond Audio, OZ Audio, etc etc........

    There are many more factors affecting that than the sub. Are your subs in a custom built ported enclosure? Or sealed? How much power are you sending them, and what kind of car is it in?

    Port your type-r's, that will be the biggest most cost effective upgrade. Might set you back 30 bucks and 5 hours of your time. Output theoretically doubles, and in a truck theres no way two r's would not be enough.

    thats what I was thinking. Type r's take very well to porting.

    and why are you so hung up on name brands. Some of the brands you listed are absolutely worthless.....
