    New setup vs Old setup:what should i expect?

    OLD SETUP: 2 Audiobahn AW1200Q(12"subs) in a 35hz vented box pushed by an Audiobahn A8002T
    NEW SETUP: 1 15" RE XXX(05) in a 28hz vented box pushed by a Planet Audio BB1250.1

    What should be the difference in sound between these 2?

    How did you like your old set up? I am looking at something similar for my first system. What are your thoughts?

    maybe you should have tuned lower then?

    Re: New setup vs Old setup:what should i expect?

    Ok, I was jsut wondering because I want a loud system but also good sound quality. I think I might go with the Xtant 12" dual A412S2 (http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/S...41230245236235) or the Kicker L5 10" single (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_3864.html). I am not too sure yet.

    actually the flame kompression sub i got to listen to had some good sq, but it wasn't alll that loud. it did hit the lows but the output was lacking ALOT.

    the xxx will set the bahns on fire. they couldn't even touch the xxx.
