Looking to get some new subs and upgrade from some POS ones I picked up as a total setup from a friend.
I can't decide and am looking for a little advice:
2 12" RE Audio SR or
2 12" Alpine Type S or
2 12" MB Quart RWE-304.
They will be going into a sealed box at the recommended manufacturer specs. Amp is a bxi-1606d so will be pushing them a little over RMS. I listen to mainly metal(lots of double pedal action) type music, which mainly gives me the goal of load, but mainly SQ.
Any advice or opinions appreciated. Thanks

For the price of each and for SQ I would get the MB Quarts.

because they handle more RMS watts then the others and the RE's are more suited for ported enclosures.  If I were to get alpine subs I would go with type R's I really dont like the other models

I really like the sound of the Alpines...but in a ported box. Sealed I wouldn't choose them

The OP listed Alpine SWS, not type R.  S tends to favor sealed.  Looks like a good choice for the music, but as always...listen first with YOUR music.

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

RE SE in a cube sealed (per) will take a beating without a problem. I have seen more than a few Quarts blown. The Alpines are always an option.

The car if it makes any difference is an old 1973 Plymouth Duster where they will be located in the trunk.
Thanks for the great opinions so far. Anyone else? I need to break this 3 way tie.2 12's sealed box -- posted image.

wellll, my 2 cents, i've had alpine type s, excellent in clarity at all volumes. i've had mb quart, very clean at lower volumes, but tend to get a little woofy. i've never heard the re's but from word of mouth i understand they'll put a hitch in your getty-up. soo, my final thought, looks like we got ourselves a mexican standoff.
