Power Handling is probably a hell of a lot higher on the Type R's. They are power hungry little bastards, and I doubt your stereo could push enough to make them really move.

my amp pushes out 115 watts per channel would im sure it would make a big diff in bass wise compared to cv. :laughing:

Are you unable to read, or do you choose not to?

The Type-R's will take at least a good 400 to start moving...then you could probably toss a good 600-700 at them and they would love it. 115 is NOT going to cut that. Not even to mention that they are a SUBwoofer....your tower speakers more then likely use a WOOFER...which are two different things.

Furthermore, ALL Alpine Type-R's are DVC....good luck wiring that in properly.

yeah and then you have to factor in the element of magnet power... :smoke:

I disagree, if wiring's holding you back, then I suggest you are the "douche"

Yes, let's wire a DVC subwoofer into a SVC woofer application, and see how well it works.
