Hey guys, I recently found the Audiopulse 12" for $200, and was wondering if it is was hugely different from the R-types. Whats the sound differences, which hits harder? Which has better sound quality? Because I can get an R-type for like $110. and I know the Audiopulse Axis's are great subs. Thanks, Josh
Ps. Is TC Sound subs the same as Audio Pulse? I saw somewhere they were mentioned together as the same.
i have never heard an epic so i cant really say. I have heard multiple type-r's and they are good subs, but i would consider trying the epic if it is within your budget. Its always fun to try new things and to get something not so common. I would guess that the epic would not disappoint.
TC Sounds changed it's name to AudioPulse a few years back, went out of business, and are now back as TC Sounds again. Thilo Stompler and the crew engineered some of the best subwoofers ever made. The Epic is AP's entry level sub, but in most companies' line-ups, it would sit somewhere in the middle. An exceptional SQ driver that can handle a good amount more than the 600 RMS rating. Bottom line, it will get louder than the Type R yet still be more accurate.
Ok, sweet. Thanks Brad, thats what I was looking for. A sub with great SQ but can get pretty loud. And which amp would you recommend to power the Audiopulse/TC sound sub? I was looking at an Alpine awhile ago, but not sure on one.
i have had the epic and it is in a whole different ballpark than a type r. yes not only will it be much much louder but bass sounds so clean, not just 1 note type of sound, very definied. and it drops low while sounding clean. audiopulse makes great subs, but you also pay for it. i dont think jbl makes amps to do power at 1 ohm..
yes but how much are you looking to spend? you said you wanted an alpine amp, i would say an alpine mrd-800 or mrd-1000 im sure you can buy one for around $200 if you look on ebay. those are rated for 800 and 1000 watts rms at 2 ohms. I see it hard to beat that power from a quality amp.
