which alpine sub to get?
 
Hey, I'm wondering which sub would be better to get, the type r 1243d or the 1043d.
Ones a ten and the other a twelve. I dl the pdf of the manual and hey have almost the same specs, but a ten inch setup would be cheaper and smaller.
So I'm wondering if it would be worth the money to go for the 12 inch.
And also whatever u suggest, can u link or tell me what the best box for it would be? It's an ext. cab truck.
Thanks.

Good choice in sub which ever size you go with. The type R is meant for a ported box. So I would suggest that over a sealed box.

I have 2 10" Type R's in my truck.

I have 2 10" infinity subs in a sealed box...and i couldnt imagine if i had 12"...also the size of the sub depends on what kind of music you prefer. I am a rock and metal head so the smaller subs can snap back better than a 12".

I have yet to find out which ported box to run for my 10" type r as well. It sounds good in a sealed box, but a ported will be that much better. From what I have found, a 10 will hit slightly faster, but not as deep. Someone will correct me on this though I'm sure.

Nice system STL, btw, love everything about your truck. I think I have decided that I'm going to get my ported box tomorrow :)

Re: which alpine sub to get?
 
Thanks for the replies but I already knew i was going ported, what i meant about the box was like what kinda premade box should I get from like amazon or something. But i may have my cousin make a box, and even then I have no clue about the ports and tuning the box.

And about the 10 or 12" deal, the 12 only hits 2 hrtz lower, being 24 and the ten inch is 26 (on paper). So I was thinking that would make them be about the same. Can someone give me pros and cons of the ten and twelve?
Thanks

Hey mykhael, you got any pics of your subs? Im curious as to how you have them mounted and what not and its hard to see in the video. I would like to get a 10in pretty soon.
