    I'd actually say MTX. I've heard Stage 1 R.F.'s and IMHO they sounded like crap, where the 7500 and 8500's actually sound decent. R.F. doesn't have a sub that compares to the 9500 at all.

    Hands down go with the mtx. Rockford doesnt even compare. Want some comparisons go to mtx's website and you can get side by side comparisons of mtx's line versus rockfords for output capabilities.

    Re: Whats better

    i see mtx and RF 50/50 in the few shops i looked thru. i say mtx has the leg up with thunderform vehicle specific enclosures. good tradeoff of thump and space for cargo/passengers, and usually stealthy in most vehicles.

    Id have to go with MTX. Some of Rockford stuff isn't impressive at all. They have went downhill so I've heard.

    Re: Whats better

    10 years ago I would have said the exact opposite, but Rockford has slacked and MTX actually stepped up.

    I think the 9500 is definately a beast, here's a good clip of the single 9500 in my car:

    So Kia puts out a better vehicle than Lexus because you see more of them?

    Unbelievable.

    I guess the RFL's were never really too successful. Beefy driver, though.

    Re: Whats better

    I think the RFL's were more of a science project.....

    The shop I bought my 9500 from had a pair of them, I thought they were cool, but wasn't overly impressed.
