Which Sub?

Ok finally i've decided which subs i want to buy, its come down to the Pioneer Premier TS-W3004SPL or the Alpine Type R's. Im mainly going for spl and earth shaking bass. The amp that will be powering these will be the Hifonics BXi 1606D. In your opinion which ones should i go with and why. Thanks

Just delivered that kind of output in a Tahoe today with a pair of DD 12's. What guy does not like a pair of Double D's...... 120^2 of port, box looked like a dog house.

I notice nobody likes to answer a direct question.

Although i've never had those particular models, I have had other alpine and pioneer subs over the years.

I much prefer the Pioneer, for both sound quality (although with subs, that has more to do with the box than anything else) and for reliability.

My last set of pioneer subs lasted me almost 7 years, and since I gave them away he's run them for another year. Still going, and going, and going.....

And on the off topic, I think the Kickers are a better deal.....

Type R x3, can sound great or get loud depending on what kind of box design you go.
