    alpine type r question

    Ok i want to buy alpine type r subs... the 12's say they handle 300 rms on some sites and i just checked on alpine and they said 500 rms... so im thinkin they will work with my amp.... alpine mrd-m1000.... now i know im gonna need dual two ohms so that i can wire em down to 2 ohm load. But i was lookin at some stuff and i found a box that is ported for 2 12's with about 1.8 cubic feet per sub... tuned to 36 hrz.... is this a good tuning for those subs or should i just go with a sealed box?... i want deep low bass that hurts lol

    are you looking for loud bass or tight clean bass? actually either way you will get good SQL cuz those subs are made SQL. yea and the 300RMS subs are the older versions...the 500RMS are the 05 versions.

    Re: alpine type r question

    just thought i would point out that the ones that says 300 rms and the ones that says 500 rms are two different subs. The 300 is an 04 model, and the 500 rms is the 05 model. So if you want the one with 500 rms make sure your buying the 05. You can tell the difference by looking at the surrounds.

    Re: alpine type r question

    the amp should work. make sure you get teh right impedance subs. i wouldnt get that box. type r's deserve lower tuning than that (at least 32, even lower mang!) and the internal volume shouldn't be more than 1.5 ft^3 after displacements.

    dang a type r would not be an upgrade for the L7's imo... everyone says LIs get as loud and sound better, i think two are less than 350 shipped but dont take my word for it

    Even the 04 models can take, and like, 500 RMS

    yea thats true they can take like 400RMS each...so how much can the 05 Type-r's take? their rated at 500RMS. maybe 600RMS? more?
