Hi. I'm trying to decide between the Alpine Type X or Type R 6.5" component system for my car. I will also be getting the same model (whatever I choose) for just 6.5" co-axials for my rear deck as well. All 4 of the speakers will be powered off Alpine's new Type X 4 channel amp (the X-A70F).
Do the type X really sound that much better and are worth $200 more a pair than the type R's?
I wanna know how to calculate this volume effecitently and accurately. Everything you see I’ve done myself! Everything is 2 layered 3/4 mdf so far. Back wall is also thinker than the 1 1/2. Because of 2x4 bracing. This car has every bit of 200$ in foam. Just to keep from splitting body panels. Thanks for all your help guys any advice info would be awesome I definitely should have been on here sooner but I can update photos and share progress through out the whole build. Plan is 2 zv5 18s on 1 Subdown 7500 or 2 saz 3,500 lmk what u think appreciate it! Also looking for another saz 3500 if anyone knows where I can get one! I have one already.
Stay bassin ☝🏻
Haven't been here in a bit, and figured I'd drop a few random shots of some of the latest subs we've been building/re-building here at the shop.
Full pictorials with step-by-step build pics are at our forum, if you want to see them all. I'll just post finished pics in this post.
Don't mean to spam the place up.... just know how we all love to see random subwoofer pron!
If you have any questios, please ask. If not, enjoy the pics.
Hey all, I'm looking to get some quality 6.5's for my TL, right now my stock speakers are component 6.5 in the front with a 3" center speaker and a stock 8" sub in the back. The sub rattles and the 3" speaker i'm not sure makes much of a difference
That being said, I'm looking to get 4 6.5" speakers, 2 component for the front and coax for the back, looking for something nice under $400-500 preferably for all 4.
Since I am a bit new to this, I was wondering if anyone might have some input on what to get, right now i'm currently thinking about going with Memphis
The amp i'm looking to go with is my old Kenwood KAC-8402
I also just found my old Infinity Kappa's in the basement
Any help would be awesome!

My budget will be about 800-1000 dollars to start off my build. I'm looking at running 2 12's. I will upgrade speakers down the line, including an amp for them. That being said, this is what I'm looking at getting for my initial setup. I would run the subs parallel, and since they are dvc4 I can have the load at 1ohm for max power from whatever amp I choose. If anything I have stated so far is wrong, please point it out to me haha. Anyways:

(^ Basically includes a free set of speakers.)
My research has led to the above so far. I am open to all options and opinions. I listen to many types of music, but for the most part "real" hip hop. Also, will I need a spare battery to power all of this? Still new to the whole process.
Thanks for any help that might come, I appreciate it!
