Default Type-R or Type-X REF

I can get Type-R 6.5 components for about $150 through work. Good deal, I can feed them 100 watts X 2 RMS out of my bridged Alpine 4ch. Now, I can get Alpine Type-X Reference level components from eBay for about $185 shipped. Seems to be a reputable seller, good feedback, power seller. What would you do?

I've bought tons of stuff from eBay, including speakers. No chance to buy any kind of extended warranty nor do I get a warranty from Alpine.

What would you do??

i installed that set up into a Nissan frontier....WOW...

*and you know with the 4Y psp you can get new ones when ever you want or when ever they come out.

My bridged Alpine 4ch is giving me 100W RMS X 2 so power will be damn near perfect. I'm leaning towards the Type-X....

I'm already buying 20 sq/ft of eDead soon to add to my already large amount. I did the math, we get dynamat for about $2.60 a sq/ft. Ouch. Even with shipping, eDead comes out cheaper.
