Exclusive Alpine Technologies Ensure High Performance

The new Type-R Thin boasts no less than 7 unique Alpine technologies in its industry-first design. These innovations allow the Type-R Thin to have the output and power handling of the traditional Type-R series in less than half the depth. The new Type-R Thin design has the same DNA of the standard Type-Rs - demanding cleaner, deeper bass extension, faster, more accurate transients and even greater output capability.

Exclusive Alpine Technologies Ensure High Performance

Consistent, Reliable Performance out of the Box

There’s no need to play your sub for hours to break it in to achieve consistent performance. This sub is designed to deliver consistent performance right out of the box. Since this revolutionary design is made with an injection mold resin, rather than phenolic stiffened textile, this new spider requires no break in to achieve ideal performance. A Co-Molded Aluminum collar attaches the voice coil to the spider to ensure a reliable, high-strength design.

Worked well for maybe a month. I ordered this sub based on my passed experience with the Alpine brand which I used to love. I do not listen to music very loud, I just like the extra tone a sub can give good music. I had this sub paired with a PDX M-6 amp and got into my truck one morning with no sound. Took it to my local shop and they can not figure out what is wrong with it. My amp is still sending signals and working properly. Their explanation was possibly a bad voice coil as the sub was still structurally sound. I know this happens, but after a month come on 300 bucks down the tube.

I bought two of these for my crew cab truck. very, very loud and moved TONS of air....for a few days! then voice coil burnout. im pushing them with a jl 1000x1 amp, less than half on the gain and within two weeks...DONE!!!! no sound or pathetic sound. i put my OLD,and i mean very OLD, mtx road thunder 12's in which are rated 250 rms and 500 peak and they sound nearly as the swr-t12 which are rated for 600rms and something like 1200-1500 peak. and the mtx's have been hitting that hard now for months and theyre almost 15 years old! If you under power them then maybe but i bought top dollar speakers that were supposed to handle being pushed....not the case. And thats why you dont but ALPINE subs.....period!
