i would over power the subs. i had 2 type-r 12 myself adn they hit hard...one would sound great and hit prety hard...the punches suck aswell as the pioneer compared to the alpine. herd punch at bestbuy nexto teh type-r so i ght the type-r then i compared them to my friends pioneer premier 12"..go with alpine if u have to pick from them 3. or get a kicker cvr..neer herd them but i have herd nothing but good about them.

first that sub is not worth buying, and the rms is 225 and it's svc 4ohm, and that amp only does 200w @ 4ohm, which is the way you'd have to wire it, but since hifonics is overrated you'd be looking at closer to 150w.

out of the 2 options..i would go with this one because if u get money to get 1 12" type r this amp goes with it great.

sorry, but i'd have to say no again. not trying to be a d!ck, but never recommend audioburn, ever. and that amp wouldn't give a type r enough power. an r needs about 550 at least.

i would go with waht i posted..mike is right about the other one...for 300 u cant beat the alpine amp that kit and the audobahn sub..and u can even upgrade to a alpine type r with that amp later.

autdio is a good sub for the 300 limit u are on.. friend has 2 12" audios powered by mts n they sound okay for the money but not even in teh type-r ballpark. i would save money n get a type-r..

btw i am watign to sell ym 2 type-r's...told a friend 200 for em including a box..but if he dont get he okay to get them from his dad ima ask on here if anyoen wants em for that price + shiping.

zulkir, i'd go with a better amp cause it's 600w at 14.4, so if you aint got the charging system to support it, than the power drops. yeah, it wouldn't underpower it as much as i said before, but an r will handle 600+ easily and doesn't really come alive without 600w+ ported, imo. and when i said the sub was garbage, i meant the audiocrap and the mtx.

and by the way, a cvr is louder spl wise than a type-r. i have dealt with many many diff application with diff boxes.

and like ctmike said, YOU NEED TO GO PORTED WITH A TYPE-R, AND EVEN WHEN IT IS, YOU NEED AT LEAST 600 TO GET IT SOUNDIN GOOD

considerin ur budget, the type-r + amp to power it is going to be too much.

LOL. OMG. the air was moving so fast you couldnt see inside ur car!!! and couldnt see out the mirrors!! wow, sounds like a hurricane

zulkir,there isnt going to be a big difference in your type r's and cvr's, and zach i would listen to ctmike and bassman if i were you they know their stuff, and the assasin is a very nice sub.

go 12" but for the amp for 170 i dont know...save up a lil more.

get a 12"cvr 4ohm dvc and a kx400.1 amp...look into getign stuff off ebay.

going cheep on teh amp is not the way to go.

i'll help ya out zach. you need to get some head way.

the CVR's and Assassins are contantly considered some of the best budget subs on the market. they are very very hard to compare spl and sq wise. in my opinion the assassins and CVR's are bout equal.

if it was my car zach, the best budget system would be:

two of these:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Kicker-CVR12-Comp-VR-12-Sub-Woofer-Car-Subwoofer-4-OHM_W0QQi temZ290005519287QQihZ019QQcategoryZ39777QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

and one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/BRAND-NEW-AUDIOBAHN-A8002T-2-CH-INTAKE-HIGH-POWER-AMP_W0QQit emZ260005771078QQihZ016QQcategoryZ48597QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

all that would be under 300!!

but is space obviously an issue? -- i can pick u a good solid amp for that 12" cvr or assassin which ever you choose

yeah just read that. zulkir, you're full of sh!t on that. i was running a pair of r's too, off a kicker 1200.1 ported and mine weren't doing that, and i know my setup was louder than yours.

i aint trying to start nothing dumba_ss, but when someone is posting bullsh!t it's kinda obvious. theres plenty of other people besides me on here that ran type r's also and not once did someone say it distorted there voice or made it blurry to look out windows. so you should really stop posting lies. and sealed, i really doubt 2 sealed r's would do that when ported wont.

it must have made driving really hard when you had your radio on and not being able to see cause everything was so damn blurry! you must have wrecked alot!

sealed box really wont make ur voice distorted or blurry to see out the windows.

if you had a ported box tuned to 65 i could see maybe it hard hearin your self (aka voice distorted_ -- but i still wouldnt beleive it. not tryin to start anything, just going by wuts the facts

downgrading to cvr's? you know cvr's have more spl than type r's right? and i don't care how many people you know that would tell me that, i've heard alot of type r set ups and i aint never heard one that makes my voice distort or looking out windows blurry, especially sealed.

yeah ok.

i don't like starting nuthing, but i feel safe to say 2 r's will not do that. i had mine ported (which is louder than sealed), a kicker 1200.1 amp, which puts out more power than on orion 1200, and i had my back seats down and tried different positions with the box. and i never once had trouble looking out windows or talking. and mine was in a smaller car with less cabin space than yours. i'm not trying to knock your subs, especially since i had the same ones, but r's will not do that.
