Alpine Type-R SWR-1042D - Car subwoofer driver - 500 Watt - 10" Reviews
Ridiculous bass May 12, 2007
The Alpine Type-R subwoofers kick like no other. They are accurate, loud, and they have the ability to shake the rear-view mirror of the car next to you, and move your own.

Wow! Alpine really blew it on this one. Had it hooked up to a infinity reference mono, pushing 457 rms. The sub is rated at 500 rms, but after 2 weeks the sub fried. Got a replacement, and what do ya know, second sub fried. Now i have the amp hooked up to sony xplod 1300 watt, and bumpin with no problems at all.
Overall, this sub is not worth the price tag, and everyone who has been in my vehicle has said the xplod hits way harder than the type r did.

Nicest set of subs I ever owned the bass is tight and punchy and has an overall warm feel to the system, matched these with alpine type r 17ls components and the sound is seemless between the speakers.

Very good sound for a 10" subwoofer . I have just the one sub , and it rattles the whole trunk of my Camaro. I would recomend this product to anyone.
Very Clean Bass and Power November 13, 2010
I have 2 Alpine Type R 10" subs in a enclosed custom box for my jeep hooked up to a 1000Watt Rockford Fosgate Power with a digital Capicitor with 4AWG electric wiring and it slaps! I had them in a ported non custom box for my Cadillac STS with Dynamate in the trunk and from the back of the car it still knocked. Make sure u put them in the correct freq and filter or they will not hit as hard. For the price and the nouns cant beat it. I used to have kickers and mtx along with some other subs but i stay with Alpine now. I also have a 12" type R but i took it out because of the space and not to mention it was so loud i could barely hear the voices of the songs i be playing. DEFINITLEY BUY THESE SUBS WHETHER 10 OR 12 THEY HIT HARD EXSPECIALLY FOR ONLY PAYING 120 OR SO!
Great subwoofer! December 30, 2010
Truly great subwoofer. I have had it for two years now. It is really great nice low bass. I have it contained by my 2002 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab. Works wonderful. I have it hooked up to the Alpine 500w amplifier, with monster cables. Just loud enough.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not the loudest sub, if you want everyone around you to hear it it will be ok: not the best though. Go for the Alpine R12 if you want that!
yea January 9, 2007
man these subs slam. i have them hookt up to a 500 watt mono-channel bazooka amp, and it pounds. i dint think that it would be enuf to push these but i was wrong. the subs are in a bandpass enclosure and they are sitting in the back of my '05 tahoe. so far i am particularly satisfied with these subs.
Decent subwoofer overall... September 29, 2007
This is a quality sub that performs well and i own experienced no problems with it. I am a little disappointed however, it doesn't have the mind blowing power that one might expect from such an expensive model. Generally, all alpine products i own have lived up to their hype, but i don't notice a big difference between this sub and the one i replaced, which was a sony explode medium range model. I assumed that this alpine would blow away the elder sony explode but in reality, i can't notice a lot of differences. I think that this alpine is built well and should last a long time. If i was asked to pay the retail price of 200$ for this model however, i suggest i would look into buying a different sub.
fast abdication and great sound January 30, 2010

WOW! June 23, 2007
Well, i've always been a kicker fan. However when one of my friends hooked up his 2 ALPINE TYPE-R subs to an MTX 1500Watt amp in his old suburban. I WAS BLOWN away litterally. these things kick like no other. awsome buy and for the price WHAT A DEAL!! im even thinking of getting only 1 for my toyota tacoma. its a little powerful for such a small truck but these things ROCK! if any1 have any comments to make on the merchant selling these subs plz advise me if they are legit!
