    Anyone had Polk Audio DXi124's??

    I'm looking to order 2 DXi124's and i'm wondering if they're good, I want something that hits hard but i'm not worried about competition level. I'm going to build a custom size box, I have plenty of room, these are going in an Xterra. I will also have an Optima Yellow Top as well as 2 660 Watt Polk Audio amps and a One Farad Capacitor. At first i was going to get 2 12" CVR Kickers and the zx1500.1 amp, but i'm trying to save some money. For some reason no one ever buys them because I've never had a customer bring some in for installation and i cant find many reviews or videos online about them.

    They are equivalent to polk's db series if that means anything to you. I have one although i'm not currently running it. Had it in an enclosure not really designed for it and ran it for roughly a week. Sounded alright at lower volume but lost a little composure when driven hard although the enclosure was probably wrong for the sub. I was using 2 cubes tuned to 35 . Seems like it would have done better in a smaller box. Cone got outta control real quick.

    Just figured id give yall an update. I went with 2 12" Kicker CVRS, dx 1000.1 and a few other things. I decided against polk audio, ive heard a lot better reviews on all kicker products anyway.

    I don't know if this is helpful, but I just bought the single voice coil version of the DXi124 for use in a home subwoofer [vented box of about 2.7 cu. ft. tuned to about 29 Hz and a 200 watt amp pushing it]. I was looking for seriously deep bass instead of hard pounding and high decibels. It works as intended and more. It's as if that what I don't hear I can feel it. This affect makes itself known on pipe organ and movie soundtracks.
