Type-R vs Type-S

Alright I have a Alpine Type-R 10". I can get two Alpine Type-S's 10" for $150. Is this a step back in quality for these subs? I am not really sure.

The new Type Ss handle just about as much power as the Type Rs, if you're looking for a true difference get the Type X.

I would go for the Type S. I have one from a bandpass in a new sealed enclosure. Doesn't pound much as it did with the bandpass but it pounds ok. Another note that it's really the Type E just with the S front lol.

It's powered by my Profile CA400M at 200w (4ohm). Soon to get a Type S DVC (Dual 4ohm) and feed it 320w (2ohm).
