For the money I have few complaints. I am used to larger subs(12-15) and this is not like those. The audible bass is loud and clean but its not shaking the car next to me. Which is what I was looking for when I bought only one of these. I installed it in a .6^2ft box and am happy to have most of my trunk back to being useable.

July 20, 2011 Alpine 10" Type R

I am reviewing the Alpine Type R. Overall the quality of the sub is great. Easy connections for speaker wire and solid frame. I have had an issue though and I'm not sure if I should blame it on the Sub or my amp. Originally I had 1 Type R hooked to a Kenwood 9104 at 4ohm so it was running 500 watts rms. The amp went into protect and when I swapped out the speaker it worked fine, so I figured it was a bad speaker. I bought 2 more Type R's and wired them at 1 ohm giving each sub 450w rms. After about a month, the same thing happened. The amp goes into protect mode. I worked with tech support and tested the speakers and they said they tested good and must be my amp. I am buying a Hifonics Brutus to run the subs. When I get that I will find out if it was the speakers or the amp.

February 16, 2011 Great sub! Buttt i prefer the older model 1042d

Excellent sub, as always. Can never touch the alpine type R subs with any other sub within $100 of the price of these. Although, I was slightly disappointed when I tried out this one after using the 1042d for a full year. Bass is not as tight or clean on this sub, I found some notes that it really couldn't play, and sounded bad on. Even after a full year of heavy usage I've yet to find a note the older model can't play amazingly well. Although, this sub does seem a bit louder, and power handling is improved, and mounting depth is shorter, it is more of a sidestep from the 1042 than an upgrade. (Note: I bought both subs brand new and used them in the exact same conditions to make the comparison). All in all, if this was the first alpine sub I bought for my car, i would have no complaints whatsoever. But considering I like the sound of the older model a little bit better, ill be switching back to that one.

The RMS rating is a "little" false. I put one Type-r 10 in an eclipse competition bandpass box... played it for two hours low volume and cranked it for about 20 seconds..... bang, left my daytona's hatch in a cloud of smoke. im not sure how. i was only powering it off of a sony 800w max 2 channel amp. But I'm sure if you had at least 2 of these, and didn't slam them on a constant basis you would be just fine. THESE THINGS HIT HIGHS LIKE NO OTHER. i would strongly recommend a sealed box. dont push more than 350w to a 10 or problems may occur. (from personal experience)
