We're talking DC, DD, Sundown, et al, and he's talking about WalMart Duals are one of his fav subs. Lmao.
No way in h-e- double hockey sticks.
Look, I'm all for budget gear, but don't give me that crap. There is a price to performance ratio that needs to be maintained to achive any kind of desireable results.
If you want to have fun with a super budget build for SPL comps for giggles, sure... go ahead and waste $30 on some Duals or XPlodes or whatever, but you're obviously not a kid and not looking to waste money for some laughs.
I took $23 Pyle subs to world finals last year and took home 3rd in the world. They took a beating. Would I recommend them to an adult looking for a solid system? No. Would I recommend them to a high school kid making minimum wage? Maybe, because everybody deserves the lows. But I would do it with the caveat that he save for better gear.
It's the same with that stupid little AudioPipe mini 1500 that's the fourm bo ner right now. It's just NOT for people that have the means for something that isn't disposeable.
$1k is a VERY solid budget. Nowhere in "I have one thousand dollars to spend" should ther be recommendations for Dual, XPlode, Pyle, AudioPipe or whatever. $1k is grown folk's territory.

your the exact narrow minded IDIOT i was talking about in that post thanks point proven...
pretty sure i wasnt even telling him HEY go buy dual
umm tool? oh yeah
This is why I'm wondering if I should just grab this W7 12" in the HO box for 300 for now and power it with a new school DD or DC amp... I'm only saying that because I am older and "probably" won't go back into SPL comps... I've had the W7 12 HO box and it did satisfy the bass I'm looking for in my everyday driver. I'm looking for low 25hz sustained bass that will roll through me and not >100hz punch. I'm still gonna look into the ones you recommended though.
I have a great base to start on because of you guys. Many thanks. Still feel free to chime in peeps...
Which part of "I took $23 subs to world finals" is narrow minded? Or the fact that I said, "I say XL or bust BUT that will kill your budget"
If you enjoy your WalMart sub then great. But you can not honestly put them in a Pepsi challenge against the likes of all of the other suggestions. What amp would you recommend? The Dual to match? Maybe the WalMart wiring kit too, huh? He can do his entire system from walmart and pocket the $914.12 he'll have left over. That's a real helpful and incredibly insightful suggestion.
I'm not sure if the insults were supposed to get a rise out of me or try to convince the OP that I am indeed a fool, moron and narrow minded idiot, but I think you've succeeded in proving that one of us is.
Tell us about the other gear that you've used to come to the conclusion that your Duals should be one of your all time favorite subs. What were your listening impressions? What material did you put through them?
Maybe your budget is $100, but his is significantly higher. And as such, higher quality components should be suggested. Does the total have to be $1k? No. But at least make the suggestions befitting of the intent.
should i further go on to mention i owned orion hcca, JL w7, rockford t1500bd, soundstream spl170, soundstream rubicon amps, audiopipe eye candys, jl w6's, rockford hx2, yes dual, sony audiopipe 1500ds
and still much more not everything no doubt
but if you read it i said bang for buck basically
not bad for 90 dollars in subs and 130 dollar amp lol
I'm sorry you got butt-hurt that I think Duals are garbage. Even for "bang for the buck" apps. In my opinion, in no way, shape or form should Duals be mentioned on a car audio forum... unless it's a punch line.
yes i currently have 2 of them in my explorer need a box though. but not my most favorite but yes they for the price have been very impressive and very durable under much higher power than they honestly should take.
and for 5 dollars i can get a warrenty that if they blow i get new ones and never even had to use it...
so yes they are one of my favs.
He is ignorant as hell keep going on about how you THINK your making some point though dude whatever makes you feel important obviously your girl aint doin it for ya
