A lot of speaker for the price

Mike from Oak Hills,Ca., Sonic Electronix
25 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Considering the cost and the size, this speaker puts out a lot of bass with a minimal amount of power. I have it in two vehicles, and along with 6.5" components, sounds awesome.

Good little speaker

tonetoka from waterbury, Sonic Electronix
29 September 2011
  • Conclusion: I would highly recommend this subs. Alpine is known for there excellent subs I owned a 12" Alpine type r and it was an amazing sub but for these type-s I was really not expecting them to have great bass for there lowest class sub. I have 2 custom boxes to fit my Acura tl and have a pioneer 900 watt amp to power them I have the amp really low and I didnt even bridge or bring it down to 1ohm and they hit really hard, deep bass and good quality sound so its a definite yes...

My first real system!!

Trae from Summerdale, AL, Sonic Electronix
30 August 2011
  • Conclusion: When I got my first ride, a Olds Delta 88, my bro hooked me up with these little guys as a gift, and I never would've thought that they performed they way the did especially in such a big car! No one ever beleived they were entry level Alpine 10's till I showed them my trunk! I eventually moved to the type r's because I wanted more power, but if your looking for a great sounding woofer, not SPL, you will not be dissapointed in these little guys.

Not what I expected

Sound Waves from Albany, GA, Sonic Electronix
22 August 2011
  • Conclusion: I recently installed a pair these in a Honda Element with 500 Watt Class D Alpine amplifier and was disappointed. Everyone on here was raving about them but it didn't live up to the hype to me. Go with two Kicker COMP 10's and a ZX300.1, it will put this Alpine product to shame and it's supposed to be comparable.

GREAT!

Halex from Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, PQ, Canada, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: Bought 2 in a Basswox box powered by a 600w RMS MTX amp and it POUNDS! Can be cranked really high without any distortion! Very satisfied with this product, the only thing I need now is a capacitor!

Five 10's

Jonathan from Groveland, FL, Sonic Electronix
20 November 2010
  • Conclusion: I have SIX 10" Type-E's in a custom ported fiberglass enclosure. I wired them in series/parallel to get a final impedance of 2.8 ohms to a single MRP-450 Alpine Class-D. It is very loud at high volumes while remaining accurate across all sound levels. For the price, they are good entry level woofers. Probably better for sealed, than ported.

OK Enrty Level Sub

Christopher from Charlotte, NC, Sonic Electronix
11 September 2010
  • Conclusion: I had 2 Polk MOMO 10" SUBS originally and they sounded excellent. I blew the voice coil on one of them so had to buy a pair of new subs. I bought these Alpines based on the reviews on the net. I will start off saying that the Polks were higher quality so I will not compare apples to apples. After about 10 hours of breaking in the Alpines they sounded OK. At higher volume they sounded distorted with music with high bass like Chevelle.
