    A sundown Nightshade 18 vs. A Dc lvl 5 18

    Discuss, ive never used either subs, but just curious as to what you can throw on a nightshade daily.

    What are the pro, and cons of both subs. Thank you.

    Well I had the old style nightshade 12s with the extras and Id wager you could throw up to ~3k on on daily. More on burps. Im also not sure what revisions jacob has made to them since.



    System on hold til I get a new ride. Stockpiling parts, still need to recone one of the nightshades.

    Feel free to PM me for install help. I only reply to posts with 0 responses

    Sorry forgot pros and cons.

    Havent used a DC sub so I cant really speak on them. I almost actually went with DC but there local dealer system would have ended up costing me a 3 hours drive and 1500 bucks for a brand new pair.

    Biggest pro to the nightshade IMO is that you can put them in a small ported box which really made it ideal for limited space installs. I mean like 1.5 cubes to 1.75 cubes ported. I tuned to 38 hz and honestly it works extremely well as a daily ground pounder/burp mix. Sort of like a one size fits all box. Only con I have had was an unfortunate winter accident. It seems the cold dried out my surround

    The Nightshade and Level 5 are not in the same league IMO, they were not made to be. The Nightshade V.2 will compare to the Level 5 but IMO, the v.1 is compared to the 4xl.
