I am leaning toward a pair of the Type "R" 12's, but considering the X's. I can get X's for $500 for the pair. For the money how do they stack up against the competition? I'm looking at powering either of them with either the JL 1000.1, or the JBL 1200.
I am not doing competitions, just looking for a nice sound without pushing the limits of the amp or the speakers.

if your only getting a 1000 watt amp u might as well get the r's.. but if powered right they will get much louder.. sq will be slightly better

MARK, Thanks for the reply. I am cofussed by your answer. The 1000 watt amp for the R's is understood. What did you mean "but if powered right they will get much louder..sq will be slightly better" Were you refering to the X's? If so what amp would do that or are we talking two amps?

There definitely are amps out there that can easily do the job for both X's, Zapco for example... but 2 will also work just fine.
