so i blew my sub this past weekend so i'm in the market for a new one. I'll pushing the new sub w/ the kicker zx1000.1 amp. I was looking into some of the near 1000watt rms subs and think the Alpine Type X might be a nice fit. Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions?
CVX's are good, but really are not worth the money. Kicker fell short on them as compared the L7 and there original Solo Barics. The Type X is a good sub, should give you a nice clean sound. Check out the MTX 9500. That would be a better way to go IMO.
There is a big write up in Feb08 addition of Car Audio that compared a Alpine swx-1243D with the RF P3 12 and a Morel ultimo 12. The Alpine finished 2nd but the artical had nice things to say about the sound and performance.
I have heard the Type X subs. Alpine makes some great subs with the Type R and Type X. Both produce a good clean sound. I have fun Type R's in my trucks and boat. Have had buddies who have run the Type X. Type X hits harder and sounds cleaner.
not trying to back alpine nu bu but for 300$ for the X ..against 570$ for the W7 it is a very nice sub.. the sub i have in my boat is a audison/hertz mille 3000 12" and it has some prety serious xcursion on it cant find any videos but if any1 wants to spend the money I would highly recommend it..perfect sq and spl for me
