I just got my Alpine 12s in around February, and already I've considered swapping them out for something else. But probably towards the end of summer I'll be investing in a motorcycle instead. Question for you guys was, based on the box thats already in my car, what would be a plausible upgrade from Alpine, while keeping the KX1200.1 as the amp in terms of new subwoofers. Just in case something doesn't work out... :-)

2xTypeR's 1242Ds. I love these things but I think there is room to grow. I certainly wouldn't buy them now, I just want something to lick my lips about :D

Nah nah I don't want to sell them. I'm just saying if I was ever to upgrade, what would my options be. Basically meaning swapping out these 12s for a pair of better 12s, since R's are pretty baseline (but good choice for a first installer, thx to Rovin/Chad Lee). As for the port I have no idea. The guy installing them said 80, but that seems like its way too high of a number. I'm thinking he might have meant 40. It sounds hella good though :-)

Centered around sql with a lean towards spl. Lets say if the money being saved from my job doesnt' go towards the motorcycle, then perhaps I'd have 500 to go towards each sub (500 a piece = 1000). I just wanted ideas. I can't actually drive my car right now and I'm pissed about it... such a waste of beautiful sounding music :-(

damn reckless we may as well be instant messaging each other haha. It's a kicker KX1200.1, the most important spec for me on it (that its running right now) is 1200x1 @ 1 ohm.

exactly. Not to buy, but jsut to think about. Kind of made me wonder what could I have gotten instead of the R's when I first decided to buy subs.

i fully understand what ur saying David coz even though i LOVE my Rs i'd like 2 change too just 4 the experience of using other products .

I'm gonna take a HUGE leap 4ward in that my next setup will be orion 2500D (already got it !) & most likely 1 DD 9515 in a big @ss ported box

There r LOTS of good subs out there - recently i was looking @ AUDIOQUE & SOUND SPLINTER subs ,specswise both look sweet...
