    Need Opinions. 2 12" Dayton Reference HO's or 2 12" Sundown SAs

    Looking for sound quality with great bass, but not the annoying rattling or too much bass. I've narrowed it down to these 2 subs.
    Side items:
    They'll be powered by an Audio Que 1200
    I listen to nothing but rap.

    And goooooooo



    Bought From: Lyttleviet, Mike465, Pioneer~Saturn, mylows10, BassMechkanic
    Sold To: MCarmer, stay_high

    Been in the game for a while, but still feel like a rookie at times.

    Between those I would SA just because they have a little more output but the Daytona SQ is great for the money from my experiences, both have a good mix of SQ and SPL but the SA will get louder but Dayton will sound better

    Have the HO's they get my vote, one of the better sounding subs I've heard.

    Both are great choices however, Highly doubt disappointment would occur for you with either.

    I have SA's and my friend has the HO's i would have to say HO's. They have surprising output for SQ woofers if put it in the right enclosure.

    Why are people so ignorant on these boards when it comes to rap? Yes, a lot of rappers use beat machines and samples. There are also a lot of rappers that use live instruments and live bands. We're talking about sound quality, not preference in music. I can show anyone numerous rap songs that use multiple instruments and are of the utmost quality. But even with the rappers who uses beat machines, programs and samples it doesn't mean all of them are **** quality and just a mess of Bass and blah.
    Download Elzhi - Elmatic. He did a remake of Nas' Illmatic with a live band or **** any Roots album. Then come talk to me about sound quality.
