    you're doing it wrong

    the r and the x are NOT the same AT ALL



    i'd even say r's are "louder" but the x's "sound better"

    oh well i didnt really know that i figured 3000 watts a piece alpine X's would be more than the 1500 watts a piece alpine R's, what is a good 12" round sub then?

    yea i agree with jco1385, the r's will get louder, i used to run a couple x's they sounded amazing but not that loud of a sub, ive got some of the older orion hcca 12.2's and they get quite loud, a huge difference in spl over the x's bro, but there is way too many good choices now man

    X2, type X's aren't meant to get loud, they are more of a SQ sub.

    If you want something that gets loud off of moderate power look into a copper coil HDC-2.

    BTW, the type R isn't 1500 watt, its 750 iirc, same with the type X. Dont go by max power go by rms.

    Wow! $450 for a zx-1500?? You could get a 2500 for less than that. I only paid like $250 for my zx-1500



    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    just an , the type x is 1000rms 3000w max (mine is addicted to 1.5k)

    but yeah, they're not SPL oriented subs
