"exile xpe 12d sub review-alpine type r performance without the price"

Hey guys,

I was able to try out an alpine type r in my car a few days ago. I had it in a ported enclosure tuned to 32 hz hooked up to a infinity 611a running 650 watts rms mono 2 ohms. I was impressed. I returned it to my buddy, and went to the local alpine dealer to order one for myself. Unfortunately they were out of stock, so i went to the future shop around the corner to look around.
The salesman showed me an exile pro xpe 12d. Looked pretty rugged and well built. It wasn't until he showed me the specs that i began to really take a closer look. Dual 2.5 inch 4 ohm voice coils, 89db 1 watt 1 meter sensitivity, 38mm peak to peak x-max and a rms power handling of 600 watts.But when he told me the price i was kind of shocked. $149.00. Let me repeat that $149.00!!!
He told me i could try it out for a month. If i am not happy he would give me my money back. If i blow it up within a month they would give me another one, no questions asked. I paid for it and took it home to install it. First hour i took it easy on it to loosen up the suspension. Next hour applied a little more power. Third hour, pour on the power.Dance, rap with the amp clip light almost comming on. 650-700 watts rms. This thing pounds!!!Nice deep bass and loud. Sounds just as good as the alpine r i tried out, except half the price. If it survives for a month i am thinking about buying another, wired for 1 ohm hooked up to a hifonics amp pushing 1000-1200 watts mono.I will advise in a month if it performs as good as it looks. Thought i would pass the information on now anyway to let others know about exile subs.

Yeah,

So far this sub is holding up. I am giving it a good torture test. I am pushing it near its limit every day by means of extremely high volumes of rap and dance. No distortion, but lots of excursion. It certainly got broken in hard. If its going to fail, better now than after a month when the free exchange is up. If it passes the test, i will buy another, and re-do my system even better.
