    Which Subs Should I Run With a MTX 81000d Amp?

    It's been a long while since I've been on this website getting advice on my system... Recently I've purchased a newer headunit, a Alpine CDA 7894 to replace the non-mp3 model Alpine CDA-7893... I sent my MTX 8000 12"s back about two months ago, and haven't received them yet... I'm trying to purchase new subwoofers to run them on my MTX 81000d amplifier. The amp performed soo well for me that the subs were completely destroyed... Can someone lead me on to a more respectable, adn yet powerful pair of subs that'll work great for SPL? Thanks~! My price range for a pair is no more than $500...



    ~My Sound System~
    HU: Alpine CDA-7894
    AMP: MTX Thunder81000d
    KnuKonceptz 0ga Amp Power Wires/Kit & Tsunami 4ga Power Wire
    SUB: (2) Blown 12" MTX Thunder8000 (Awaiting Arrival)
    Cap: PPI 1 Farad

    Try a pair of the Hollywood Excursion 1280d's or a pair of their Triple Threats, you can get a set from Razorback Car Audio, call 501-562-8533, ask for Brad and he'll hook you up. Tell him Rick sent you.

    If you want to be really loud and don't mind being unoriginal, you can go with two kicker l7. Either 12 or 15, whichever your preference. If you're more of an SQ guy, think about maybe a single w7...

    1. hollywoods are good where your amp is short on power...with the MTX you have around 1700RMS on tap.......so ěforget HSL for this application

    2. the list is more or less endless as there are so many good products around that people could recommend, all way under $500 a piece, but here a few suggestions

    sHoCkEr
    DD 3515
    ED (check at www.edesignaudio.com if theyre still onspecial and teat yourself to 2 15s if they still are !!!)
    Brahma - good SQ too
    RE, especially the XXX
    Treo

    theres just a few names for you.im sure somebodys gonna suggest something else, but for pure SPL, id say sHoCkEr, SQ SPL mix - Brahma, and for the money, cant beat EDs special offer

    I can clearly see that you don't know jack sh*t about the Hollywood drivers, because if you did you would know that they are not designed for only low powered amps. If you've heard their flagship drivers in the proper enclosure and power then you would know that they are design to play very loud and deep in a small box. As far as power is concerned we a running in excess of 1100w rms per 10 inch driver on a regular basis without problems or failure of the driver. It's fine to be loyal to a brand but don't shut your mind or try mold someone else's to your way of thinking just because you are not mature enough except that a less than how dollar speaker or name brand can compete with all the overprice and over rated bullsh#t out there.

    im getting tired of your crap, but if you look carefully, he guy

    a) wants a nice SQ sound
    b) there is better **** than HSL - if theyre soooooo **** hot, why aint soooo many people using them, like DD or sHoCkEr for example?
    c) there are subs out there, ike the HSL, thatca compete up to a certain point with the big boys - like I said, have a buddy doing with 2 subs, 2 sHoCkErs, what you quote being done with like 8............

    quite franly, im tired f yor cra and will n enter into any more correspondance...........

    bye bye

    1) No I am not a dealer, just the same as you and everyone else on this forum seems to believe in and support your favorite subs ie... Re, adire, and others, I too have a favorite that just so happens to preform pretty **** good.
    2) I'm not trying to push HSL down anyone's throats, but again when ever someone ask about subs on this forum, brahma, xxx, and shiva's get pushed on them like these are GOD's gift to the subwoofer world, you are giving your opinion on a sub you like that has proven itself to you are you not, well I'm doing nothing less!
    3) I didn't respond earlier because I do have a finance department to run here at work
    4) As far as you being fed up with me, who cares! You'll either get over it or you want, either way I don't care, I'm not looking for enemies but if you want to become one then get in line and take a number! It's supposed to be fun but some people take this stuff way to serious.

    i never took you seriously from the day you began to "contribute" to this thread........and my what a valuable contribution you have made

    look, kiddy, run along and run the finnace department, or whatever you claim to do............oh and what is YOUR system??? 64 HSLs with 10,000RMS per coil???? Now that is hot $hit!!! The likes of Nathan Munson beter watch out...............cos DARKHART is about!!! :p

    Oh and to stop you crying, Ill say this to make it fair and make yu happy, so wipe he tears..........

    HSL Is a very good driver for the money, it hits hard, low ad works in small enclosures. Its underrated, bu is also quite efficiet and will do a good job with little power...............one problem.........................................a handful of other subs, at a similar spec and price rage can do just that and not break into a sweat.......

    As far as authority goes I have the AUTHORITY and RIGHT, to say whatever I choose so long as It's my veiw and opinion. 10yrs. as an officer in the military gives me that right, being born in this country and loving it gives me that right!

    What you view as being cool and not cool is irrelevent!
