JL vs Alpine

 

Anonymous
 
I am going to be purchising a system soon and I am debating which system would be louder? The first is (two 12w7's with one JL 1000/1 amp) and the second is (two 15 inch alpine type R's, with one audiobahn A8000t 800 watt amp). I was wondering which would be louder and sound better? Is there anything bad about either one? If so than what? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!!!

here's a true story. two 12W7 w/ 2 JL 1000.1 (one to each) in the back of a blazer. two 15" Diamond Audio TDXs w/ 1 memphis amp(yes, 1 to both), not even the mojo (the step below) in an explorer. No joke, sitting in the blazer, i couldn't hear the guys subs, i could only hear the TDXs.

I will always prefer alpine over JL... Just preference mainly.

I have never heard the Apline type R's but I have heard that they are good SPL subs but if you want SQ then go with the JL's for sure!

If you got the money try the Type X's

The JL setup is better but you will be paying a ton more. For the money, I'd say the alpine setup is better.

I would think the JL stuff you mentioned costs a crap load more than the alpine subs and audiobahn amp you mentioned. I would decide how much you wanna spend, then compare stuff in the same price range.

who ever said that the R types are more SPL than SQ has his information wrong I think. If im not mistaken I believe R types are known for their good balance between SPL and SQ
