I'd go with the Type-R. Mainly because your headunit is an Alpine product and i hate mis-matched stereos.

what about the companies that only make subs, do you punch the owners?

YES!

lol, just kidding :P I just prefer to have something matching over a system of 8 different brands. Im neurotic that way. Thats why I recommended the Alpine Type-R's because he can match them at least with the headunit vs adding a 6th label to his car.

I don't think manufacturers optimize decks for their components, amps, subs, etc. If you want all the same brand than spend 10k on a JL system vs. 2k on much better products.

Type-R's are cheap, Soundstream is better, and when's the last time you saw a recommendation for Power Acoustik, Audiopipe, or DB Drive?

You want to properly fit a pair of 15's and their box in the trunk of a Sebring????? This should prove interesting.
