2 15" or 2 10" Help

As the Title says

I have 2 15" Rockford punch, and 2 10" Alpine Type S

Both in vented box's.....these were from previous cars I had in the past.

I am hoping to get your thoughts on which one of the 2 setups I should go with.

Also if you have pics with Dual 15" vented boxes in your trunk.

Final note what 2way or 3way speakers are you guys running

i have 1 12" kicker and it shakes the rear deck like no other. 2 15" just sounds absurd in our cars. i'd go with the 2 10" for now, see how you like it, sell the 15"s and get 2 12"s instead. im planning on getting another 12 soon, im in it for the sound though, not how much i can shake the car.

Yea 2 10's (even though I seen you decided on them already) the amount of space you'll be able to use for the 10's will benefit more then trying to squeeze 2 15's in. The amount of air space won't be enough to let them breathe if your doing a trunk build.

Ok and for 6.5's I say just get 1 pair of components. Look at the sensitivity of the speaker and it'll determine how loud they are. Reason I say just go with 1 pair is the sound stage will sound better with them playing from up front. Any speakers behind will tend to be drowned out from the bass anyway. Unless you plan on running like 8" shallow mount woofers in your doors (modded) for mid bass, I wouldn't run 2 pairs of speakers. Also if you considering using any in the rear deck, DON'T! The pressure and air from the subs will force the speakers to reach peak and blow possibly when you play them loud enough. It'll be a waste of money honestly.

4th order bandpass? I've been considering running 3 12's in a 4th bp but I'm iffy on it. Don't know if I want to run all that.

2 15" or 2 10" Help

I had 2 12" alpine type-r subs with a 1200 watt mono amp and a capacitor. After they broke the rear view mirror off of my spec v I took them out. It also broke A big section behind it on the windshield. The long term effects on ur speakers suck and they will eventually sound horribly distorted. I even had my trunk lined in dyno mat.

I am a alpine guy what 6.5 you think I should use up front. i have two sets of type S 6.5 that I got for free that I am going to use for the back so I don't care if it blows.

I mean if you like alpine, I'd say stick with what you have. Only question is are they coaxial or components?

Yea you'll want to get some components then. It'll sound better then coaxial based on where the location for the door speakers are. Coaxial sound best when they are at mid level with the driver. When they're low (Near your feet) they won't sound as good. Even if they're very loud, separating the tweeter from the speaker/woofer will give you a more surround feeling.

2 15" or 2 10" Help

I love alpine. I have a 12" r with a mrp m500 amp and it hits plenty. so 2 tens will be plenty. As for speakers I'm running s's on a alpine pdx 4 channel. The gain is only a 1/4 up and it's plenty loud.

I would say try to sell em or trade and get 1 12" type r with a mrp500 or mrp650 like the above post says. That way you'll bang and still have trunk space. I personally don't like the sound of 10's. 1 12" is perfect for a little car like this. I would just pay attention to which gen of type r it is because they all have different ratings (500w rms, 600w rms, etc.) and just buy the alpine amp that matches it. Since you're an alpine guy maybe try the 6.5" components they make? I've never heard em but I imagine they're pretty good. Good luck!

I'm more partial to the alpine's! But like a few other people said, sell em and maybe buy a Sundown Sa-12, or Type-R 12. I've had both and they're both awesome. They would love a good ported and you'll still have room! As for my components, i have JBL MS-62C all around on a Soundstream Reference Amp. I like the Type-S components a lot, especially for the price. As for the fronts, the Type-R components would be great. I listened to the Type-X and they're nice, but just pricey!

I've heard great things about the type R. Both the sub and components (I wouldn't mind running the type R comps)

I'm running a Sundown E-12 in a 4th/6th conversion and am extremely happy with it. Biggest thing with the E series is its defiantly SQ favorable as its not a low end monster, won't get insanely loud (can hold its own depending on the box as every time I demo people swear its an SA) and is very tight in response compared to the SA line. Great budget sub.

I've run sealed, 4th, and 6th with this sub. Very versatile and will run ported or sealed just fine.

Maybe I missed it, but I guess it would be good to also state what the goals are, what type of music you typically listen to, etc.

IME, 1 10" for SQ competition is sufficient for our cars. Funny thing is I have had a couple judges complain that it was too much and had to tune down certain frequency ranges. I only have had one interested in more dynamics at lower volumes (but that comment was not just for the sub but for other parts of the frequency range as well).

If you're like me that hates rattles, going with larger than a 10 will likely drive you nuts as you'll likely just induce more and need to go deaden like crazy . My $0.02 FWIW.
