Conclusion: I have two of these subs and they pound hard! Mine arent even being powered by the proper amp and they pound very hard cant wait until i get a proper mono amp. I would recommend these subs. Alpine is an extremely good brand. Very good quality.

Conclusion: I brought 4 and put them in a sealed box, sounds good real low bass. If you are looking for good woofers look no more. Alpine is top of the line and have been making good car audio since N.W.A and before! So who you with.
Conclusion: I've had this same sub going strong for a good 2 years now it was in my car for a year and now its in my dads truck in a 2.0 cubic foot ported box tuned to 34 hz and it hits pretty hard and sounds amazing in my dads truck....i myself have the alpine type R 12 in a 2.3 cubic foot ported box tuned to 32hz and i love it! it's been living for a year now lol....
Conclusion: These Alpine SWS-1223D Type S (series) Subwoofers are a tremendously great buy. They offer the great lower frequencies that we all look for down to 27hz without a struggle and distortion. They can handle a great Mid Range bass, it's very punchy, tight and accurate. The transition from mids to high an low to high is amazing. I have them vented with the box at 3.40 cubic feet. These were the missing link in my car audio system.
Conclusion: this sub sounds amazing, and is super cheap through this dealer, however i would recommend a truck box for this sub, it is a very shallow sub and a big box will destroy the sound, i will never own another sub than alpine
Conclusion: i have 2 of these in my 1992 ford explorer and they hit very clearly and very hard......with 2 of these things its makes my vision vibrate, these are very good subs as long as you power them correctly.....
