Summary: Out performs my type r setup and honestly my buddy has two 13 inch w7s in a saturn lol maybe its the car but i believe my type xs blasting from my 2600 watt amp vs his two w7s and a 1000/1 amp is no comparrison. And ima jl fanboy always have been.
Summary: The Alpine Type X is a beast of a subwoofer. I've stuck with alpine when it comes to subwoofers for awhile now because they always seem to make a great quality product whether it be the R or the X both subs are great. I've had this sub for about 5 months now and it still sounds great.
Summary: I purchased two of these subs in 2005 and pumped them hard until I totaled my 2000 Honda Accord coupe in 2010. Now they're in my storage unit and I can't wait to put them in my recently purchased 2008 Acura MDX. At 1000 watts RMS, I put an 1000 watt Alpine amp on each of them.
Summary: Ive been in the audio business for years. When I planned on buying these, i prepared myself to buy other quality Applications, such as amp, wiring and most importantly the box. I bought a giant box and put the low pass filter at 60Hz and the rest of my speakers 75Hz and up!
DANGER-This sub will destroy your ears and your car!

Summary: The ALpine Type X 12" subwoofer is very powerful unit. I recently purchased one of these well built, heavy duty subs for a 97 sentra. I paired the sub with a zues 3300 and have it pushing half power. After one day my rear speakers lay in pieces in my trunk.
Summary: Package was received in perfect, undamaged condition. I already had one of these hooked up to an alpine mrp-m1000. I added this one along with an alpine mrx-m100 amp. My brother had 4 12" subs in a car that he owned about 10 years ago. These 2 subs blow that system out of the water.
Summary: This Alpine isn't the most efficient sub but it us about the most well built tank-like sub I have owned. I recommend you use 4 gauge or better power wire to power your amps because this sub will pull the power and will hit hard and deep, very deep.
