Alpine Type S 12" is sweet!

Matt, Crutchfield
13 November 2015
  • Summary: So the backdrop. I have a Titan king cab that I wanted to add some low end to. I'm not trying to win competitions just a little low end added to the factory setup. I had a Kicker "hideaway" and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. It did exactly what I wanted it to do.
  • Pros: -Great sound quality -Clean design -DVC abilities -Pretty efficient
  • Cons: -Price (I think they could have done these for less -Getting the Wife to sign off on anything car audio related

Excellent Alpine

Brandon, Crutchfield
14 June 2015
  • Summary: Excellent subwoofer for its price range! Currently is installed in my s2000 and is more than powerful enough to make it though a sheet metal wall and thick plastic trim. Is powered by a 500rms bazooka amp. Sound is clear and very crisp.
  • Pros: Clean appearance High build quality Crisp clear sound Very powerful when operated near the top of the RMS range. Bezel hides the mounting screws
  • Cons: Rubber bezel could be damaged during install

LOUD

Ricky, Crutchfield
30 July 2014
  • Summary: This sub is absolutely AMAZING! This sub shakes my whole car even turned up a 1/4 and when its all the way up i'm able to shake the cars next to me. I'm only feeding it 100 watts also since if i hooked it up to my sound ordanance m1500 it would probably destroy my battery..
  • Pros: Loud
  • Cons: Nothing yet!

  • Summary: The best sub I've ever had. I heard it and immediately sold my 2 15 inch kicker squares to go get one with a ported bassworkx box and couldn't be happier.
  • Pros: Sounds like 2 15s
  • Cons: Not a single complaint

Alpine Type S 12' Sub

Evan, Crutchfield
4 April 2014
  • Summary: I love this sub. Even though, yes it is my first sub and yes, I am probably fanboying over it, It hits really hard. i have it paired with alpines MRV-500 amp and have the gain set to 2/3 and bass boost set to 9db.
  • Pros: Loud, accurate, great bang for buck.
  • Cons: Slight ruffling when it hits the higher or lower notes (almost inaudible though)

Great sub, almost as good as 1990 lanzar pro

BatsonE, Crutchfield
7 March 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to share my experience since I used to be very heavy in the Crank it up scene in the 80's-90's. I used to run Lanzar Pro subs with 90-93 db efficiency. These are 86db. You have to double the watts to add 3 db so a more efficient sub takes less power to get the same db as cheaper subs.
  • Pros: Quality sound Tight base in sealed box
  • Cons: wish was more efficient 86db not good enough
