Default Sub upgrade questions

I need to who what (2) 12's will be an upgrade over my two alpine SWR-1243D subs. They will be in a ported 4.3 ft^3 box tuned to 31 Hz and ran off an SAZ-1200D.

I want something that will get loud off 600W and smash the lows. Budget is not an issue because I have time to save.

For output and lows, you cant beat the type r's. They are awesome subs. Honestly off the power you have, the subs are right on par. Focus on an enclosure design and work from there.

why not use sundown? 2 SD-12's would likely do you good. or even SA's even though they'd like a little more power. other options would be things like skar's, the AQ's you posted or DC lvl 3. personally i wouldnt do the aq's since they use the weird basket; it makes em hard to do anything with if they were to ever to blow and they done have quite the resale as the others mentioned. type r's are typically good performers though, is there something about the setup you arent satisfied with?

I'm fairly satisfied and really enjoy my Type R's, but I want to see what all else is out there. I am always looking to upgrade, but I want to keep my enclosure and my 1200d for sure.

I just wanted to see what everyone says would be better because so many people have bad things to say about Type R's.
