Wow best 8 on the market. I had a JL before this and it was very nice but this one has a cleaner bass than the JL. Actually broke a brand new box already need a pro box for sure
Pros: Small but powerful Price Sound quality

Bought two of these and put them on a jl 600.1 in a ported box tuned to 37hz and was I shocked. Tight, accurate, low bass even for a speaker this size. Don't take up much space either. Recommend these for someone who wants compact set up with massive sound!
Pros: Size, deep bass, low power, accurate, look nice
Cons: None buy them lol

I've had many subs in.my years. Never top end, just value based. 10s, 12s, 15s etc. I.picked up two of these Alpine type R 8s, thought one day I'd find a use for them. I wanted bass in my trunk, but didn't want something gaudy or huge. I built the box sealed, maybe 1.5 cu.ft. subtracting sub space. Absolutely blown away. No way a pair of 8s sound this good. Highly recommended. Wish I could add a pic.
Pros: Big sound in small package

Absolutely the best 8" speakers I have ever heard. I swapped 2 12" kickers for these and I am blown away. The sound quality is second to non. I hear better bass, and get such a better response a lower volumes than I did with the kickers. I can listen to music and hear it as it was Intended rather than just boom boom boom... I wish I would have found these sooner. They will not move the air around at sub 35 hrtz lime 12s will, but the sound quality more than make up for that. I placed them in a ported labrynth box running 600 watts to them. I love them.
Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, look nice

I never go by reviews because I know there is companies that pay people to do them.. I will tell you this, the review o will give is not fake.. These subs bring ridiculous bass to my 08 corvette.. Definitely recommend these subs.. Thanks to Crutchfield professionals recommending these to me..
Pros: Little space big bass
Cons: None yet

This little subwoofer packs a BIG punch. I built the smallest enclosure possible for the speaker and it works great. People can't believe it's an eight inch woofer, they think it's a twelve.
Pros: Small enclosure!

I'm guessing these haven't broken in yet as they don't give the sound I was expecting for a top quality sub, as far as Alpine sells it. Mind you, I'm running these along with a pair SWS15D4. The 15s make sound like the 8s are along for the ride, even though I've got them crossed to play different ranges. Overall, not bad, but can't say that any extra cash for Type R is money well spent.
Pros: Easy install, cast basket
Cons: FInish shows evidence of 'assembly line' finish quality.
