Re: JL audio vs Sundown
From someone who hasn't owned either but has built multiple boxes for both and heard quite a few applications of both, I would go with the sa. I'm an SQL guy by all means also. Out of all the applications and sizes (sealed, ported and 4th order (for both minus 4th order for the jl's), I would choose the sa ported.
But if money isn't the deciding factor, like someone said above, power should be the deciding factor.
>800 rms - JL
>1000 rms - SA
For you, it sounds like the sa would be the way to go. I read the first 2 pages and skipped to the end so I don't know if you were considering multiple subs. If you are and you don't have a whole lot of space, 2 sa's sealed in a decent size box with some polyfil would satisfy your wants. Temporarily of course lol. If you have space ported or a bandpass designed correctly would be the way to go.
I know you didn't want anyone to suggest other subs but this also is a good alternative. Have you looked at the Fi Q series?
