Product Details

Alpine 12" Type-E Series Mobile Subwoofer, Model SWE1243

Key Features:

  • High performing bass at an affordable price
    Want to boost your bass without breaking the bank? The Type-E Subs are the solution for your vehicle. The highly efficient design with all new cone materials allows these subs to play both louder and lower. And with a shallower mounting depth, these subs can be installed just about anywhere, but they look so good that you won’t want to hide them – the new protective grill looks great and conceals all the mounting hardware. Affordable – Great looking – Great sounding – Great choice
  • Clean, Concealed Mount Gasket System
    These subwoofers have a shallower mounting depth allowing for more application flexibility and the concealed mount gaskets give Type-E subs a clean finished appearance for any vehicle
  • All new cone materials
    The Type-E sub cones are built with 2-piece Parabolic Woven Fiber & Pulp/Kevlar, a lightweight cotton fiber design making for a fast snappy dynamic response. The high excursion Santoprene surround allows for impressive linear excursion so Type-E subs play louder, and lower!

    These are great punch for the price, these subs hit hard, and can handle anything from Dance/Electronica, Dubstep, or Techno, To Rock, Metal, Alternative, or Punk Rock. They are very diverse and have great sound and wiether you buy one or two of these subs you will feel the effects of the sound boost they add.
