Just got this hooked up for a guy I work with. NICE budget system for about $900. VERY impressed with the SDC subs off a 1200D amp. DJ did his homework on that combo. They hit hard and drop LOW and knocked plenty off stuff off the shelves in my garage.

Box is 8.5^3 @ 38Hz Red Hammertone port and a few raised logo's. Didn't have time to clean the dust out of the port as he had to get to work :laugh:

15" SDC2.5's

1200D amp with KNU Flex 4 gauge kit

REV coax's up front off an older Neon amp and Pio HU powering it all.

He came from some Hammer flea market subs, so to say he was happy would be a MAJOR understatement. We have another AQ fanboy now :D

He was a little surprised when he saw how big it was. LOL Of course compared to the dual 12" sealed prefab he had anything looks big.

Size/tuning was recommended by DJ and seems to work fine. He didn't have $$$ for a bigger amp, but they seem fine getting RMS. And the poor coax's up front can barely keep up :laugh:

Box is 37.5w x 24h x 25d, but seems bigger in the pics. Maybe the weird camera angles or something...

Tough to compare as I have like 3x the power he has, but for the $$$ the subs/amp cost it's a **** nice combo. LOTS of solid/low bass on the stuff we played. Rattles everywhere, decent flex, move a LOT of air, and they sound good also.

Only got to hear them for about 15 minutes while dialing it all in, but I liked them a lot.
