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)
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
Summary: I bought this sub to replace 2-10" subs I had before and it was well worth it! I have an Alpine MRP-M500 amp powering my 12" and it's perfect! I bought the 4 Ohm dual voice coil because I already had the amp an didn't want to buy a new one and I could just bridge the 12" from 4ohms to 2ohm which is...
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
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..
Summary: Recently bought an alpine type s and wow does it pound. I decided to put it in a sealed box since i never used one before and let me tell you it sound incredible. I bought an audiopipe 1500 since i was on a budget and it does the job.
Pros: Looks very sleek with the black cone. Small and versatile. Version of older type r. Good for people on a budget.
