not at that price my man! Your prob better off getting two and spending alittle more than buying 3 and skimping.

and for xmax. is the alpine xmax or xmech 29mm? how good is this compared to the cerwin vega vmax? which would you recommend?

27.7mm-xmax for type r's. basically it comes down to personal preferance. i myself have the type r's. i dont have them hooked up yet cause im still building the system, but i know a few different people who run them with a 100 or so more watts than rms and they bump. the vegas definitely bump to though so i would consider cost and preferance and make your choice with what better suits you.

does this sounds right? $120 for a 15" cerwin vega vmax? or is this a cheaper model?

for some reason this doesnt seem right.

if so is this the sub that everyone talks about? or is there a better cerwin vega sub out there?

I just got 2 12" V-Maxes from them, that price is the real deal man.

And be careful buying the DVC model, Cerwin Vega's site says they are 4-ohm voice coils, but some places say 2. I went the safe way and just got 2 4-ohm SVC models and wired them down to 2-ohms.

ok so i can get 2 alpines or 3 vmax for the same price. what would you recommend? is the vmax a good sub? or is it a "good for the money" sub?

I've only heard Type R's with a crappy amp and box, and I don't even get to hear my V-Maxes until tomorrow or monday. I did a lot of research on both though and most people think the V-Maxes hit harder, while the Type-R's probably have better quality. If you want it loud, I doubt 2 Type-R's would even compare to 3 V-Maxes.

for the sealed box volume for the 15" vmax it says 2 cubic feet of total box volume. does this mean that i should not factor in the driver displacement because its already factored in?


and i'm beginning to think, will 3 of these 15" vmax subs be better than 4 12" kicker comp vr?

Spending tons of money just to beat someone isn't worth it to me. Just do what will make you happy everytime you drive your car.
