    Opinions Please (Sub)

    http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/prod...05_p-23226.htm

    is it worth the buy?

    I'm not too keen on the sub boxes, i'm guessing the box itself won;t be the best quality and won;t give "as good" sound output?

    I have a single 12" Alpine Type R sub in my car and it is more than cabable and very loud!

    Mine is wired up to a W202 headunit and Alpine 500W Mono block amp

    There good loud subs but form my experience with alpine, if it says 500rms then it MEANS 500rms, the moment slightly more power goes through it'll go bang.

    For the money, they're good. For quality i'd say with that kind of money there's more options.

    Seems like a good price mate. I paid that (a few years ago) for 1 Type S sub and the amp to power it (300 or 500 watt - I can't remember!).
    Europa Blue cabriolet turbo...now with VXR turbo, collins dump valve and a large number of Courtenay hoses

    ive got mainly type R in my astra ATM, the components are good as well but IMO the tweeters on the new ones are a little too harsh, i wouldnt bother with rear speakers unless your planning on carrying a lot of passengers.

    If you're getting a 9886, dont waste your money on rear speakers, buy the imprint box instead, it takes SQ into a new world !!

    (i did mine 3 days ago and won a sound contest 2 days ago :P)

    really?
    is it that good?

    if that is the case, i will get the next one up from the 9886 which comes with imprint built in i think?
