Going on specs I'd get the Kicker. The Kicker unit will produce lower notes than the Alpine unit and the Kicker unit is also a tad louder. You can't go wrong on either though. Just make sure you get the correct box for the one you get.

yes the kicker takes more space though, but alpine more expensive.

Alpine has better SQ Then kicker but kicker has a higher SPL. Depends what you want. I have 12" Type S in my fiddy under the rear seat. Its sounds good.

Are you just going to run a wedge box or a custom one?

ive had both but in 12s. Blew out my CVR, then blew out my Type S, now I have a type R. They are very very similar in quailty and sound and I would really just go with whatever one you can get for cheaper.

getting a 10 crv tomorrow, and will be making a custom box on monday at school, will let you know how it turns out

original poster, do you have a singl cab or an extracab, the sub im getting has a box built for a two door extracab and fits into the hole in the back panel behind the driverseat, i have a four door extracab so it wont fit right

Ive had both in 10s and I prefer the sound of the CVR, plus it is not as deep of a magnet, and it lasted me 3+ years with no problems.

they can hit hard, but they also hit solid and sound good with all types of music.
