What methods are used to measure response rate (your ears don't count since they're are biased, lol)...?

This is simply something you've built up in your head or have read somewhere else. Either way, it is 100% incorrect!

If you don't want to take my word for it, please post this over on www.DIYmobileaudio.com and prepare yourself.

And what is your interpretation of those specs? How do they model up?

I cannot decipher this. Can you copy/paste it and add punctuation, maybe some capital letters here and there. Ya know, proper sentence structure like we all learned back in 5th grade.

This is a subjective opinion. For the money, they are mostly garage and better can be had for less. (<-- that's also subjective, but it's clear I have far more credibility than you).

Re: What is Best??? Alpine Type-R's or Infinity???

No idea what is going on here...oh wait yes I do. Matt, as always you have WAY too much knowledge! darkninie - he is our Resident Stereo Expert, so easy on the jumping the gun ish...if he says you are wrong, you are not right. He has helped me out tremendously and I encourage you to ask for his assistance...

Matt dude JG is lucky to have you...and I must say the SSA Icon and Sundown is a great combo!!! Is that one of the two drivers you would recommend in a sealed/10"? I love my system...ALL thanks to you

I must admit that I came of as an ass and I want to apologize to you "darknine" - it wasn't my intention to sound like a dick and I should have realized that at the time... my bad. I just get irritated when people claim that larger subs are "slower" or non sound quality and vice versa, and when people claim that sealed enclosures are optimum for sound quality and vice versa. There just isn't any data to merrit such claims and it really is going to change from driver to driver.

I appreciate that Brad!

The Icon performs VERY well in both ported and sealed enclosures. If I remember correctly (modeled them up) I don't think you gain much at all by going to a ported enclosure - it's almost flat in a sealed enclosure! The Stereo Integrity Mag.v2 is to be only mounted in a sealed enclosure and I think the other one was the JBL GTi sub woofers, oh and the DIYMA R12.

Re: What is Best??? Alpine Type-R's or Infinity???

Yeah no gain by going ported, and the box I have is the perfect size...the rear security cover clears it by less than an inch!

Good call...you were a little harsh! Help him as you helped me Mr. Miyagi...
