Default 98-02 Accord ALL Alpine System

Have anyone tried putting in ALL Alpine Units in their car? How does it sound? I have an Alpine Deck already and im planning to get the Type-R Components...$250, Type-R 6x9...$160, (2) 12' Type-R Subs...$400, and V12 Alpine Amp...$500. Total of about $1310 and that's w/o tax and installation. I wanted to know if its worth it and will all this be enough for SQ or SPL competition. Thanks

SQ because unless you got an amp larger then the MRV-F345 listed as 500$'s on alpines site, you arent pushing enough power to do SPL then you have to consider a custom case if you want to go SPL I need to put a picture of my friends case that hes using for SPL........... its......... scary looking....... then if you are going SQ then you need to go the whole design route and looks and etc. going the SQ direction is a crap load of work.....

The Type-R Components have a mouting depth of 3". You might not have enough room for them in the doors. I personally have not looked at the room in my '02 coupe, but everything I have found on line recommends 2-2.25" depth. If you can make these fit, I would be interested in what it took to squeeze them.

Also, you will probably need to space the 6x9s up by at least .25". They have a mouting depth of 3.25". It's not a big deal, but I thought you should know. I just installed some MTX 6x9s with a 3" mouting depth and they JUST clear the trunk opening stuts under and around the magnet.

Yeah, I'm running alpine type-r coaxial 6.5"s in the front and 6x9s in the back of my 01, powered by a 50x4 v power amp and I'm very pleased with the sound. However, I have a sony headunit and direct audio extreme 12" subs so, not alpine all around.

I had an old system that was all alpine except for the subs and sub amp. But this was back in the day when alpine had squat for subs. I have always loved alpine for thier clarity and quality. I have a pair of Type R 12" subs and all I can say is OMFG! They have to be the BEST subs for thier price range. The only thing I have never really been impressed by and still have yet to really be impresed with from alpine is Sub amps. My preference would be to go all alpine mid/highs and alpine amps running those. Alpine Subs and something like a Rockford single channel D Class amp running the subs. ALL alpine should sound sweet though, but if you want SPL, in my oppinion, go with something else for the sub amp. The Type R subs are more than capable of doing SPL though.

Do you have the component set, or coaxials? The coaxials have a 2 3/4" depth, so they are not quite as deep as the component set.

Hey first post! woo. anyway, i had to register and post in the audio department. Alpines are awsome if you plan on not geting subs, they do awsome full range. But since you plan on getting subs too, id invest in Infinity speakers. they have awsome highs and mids. I have 4 Infinity 6.5" in my Jeep, and a Kicker L5, i turn the bass to -6 on my eclipse deck, and therefore the doors are doing no bass, and are crystal clear at max volume because there not putting out any bass. but thats just my $.02

ALPINE HEAD UNITS AND COMPONENT SPEAKERS ROCK. BUT FOR SUBS YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, I HAVE A JL 1000/1 AMP AND A 13.5 W7 SUB. WHEN I BOUGHT IT, THEY WERE 1 G A PEICE. WITH SUBS GO WITH NAME BRAND AND WARRANTY. JUST MY OPINION
