    sonicelectronix has the MOFO's for $145 shipped each. Those MOFO's model very well. sealed, ported, bandpass, whatever.

    12 cubic feet you say? your new gw3-15's model well in a box that big sealed. that's 6cubes per sub.......not bad at all. group delay does NOT look ugly either. ported however......jeez man.....

    Try them out and see if you like them.



    All day I'm clippin'
    voltage be dippin'
    I don't give a damn,
    cause my trunk always hittin'!

    creating a proper sound wave. Step one, turn it up until clipping. Step two, done.

    well you guys think i should return these and shop around more i'l take your word for it......really got me doubting these now.....like i said i don't know subs....i can fix an amp when it dies but subs arn't my strong point......i'm just looking for the most bang for my buck here....compared to my old orions these look beefy....but if there not going to last that long even on my old opti then what do i need them for.....

    You literally just picked the strangest sub I've ever seen.
    I don't know what the hell PA was thinking. I thought it was a clerical mistake but PPI has a similar sub rated almost the same. Both are under Epsilon Products.

    ok then....i just hate to waste the wood building a box for these and they sound like crap.....i only have 2 shets of mdf i bought awhile back....i'd love to been able to afford the mofo's but to be honest with paying child support for 8 kids it took me about 7 months just to save the $200 i paid for these...i literally saved my change....i'm just hoping that sealed they will hit decently hard...i love my music.....i'm thinking about calling power acoustik tomorrow to see if was an error in the specs......like i said if these arn't the most bang for what monies i have then i'll go another direction....i do need them to be d2....this old lanzar don't put out much above that...wish i could afford to run it at 1/4 ohm though....i have two of them....had them since high school...and al together i had 8 orion subs at one time....blew the other about 10 years ago.....

    my vote would be to return em, bump with your orions for a bit and let the budget grow. 4 15s to 2 15s is a lot of cone area lost, gotta get strong motors to make up for that.

    According to Vance Dickason just because the numbers don't jive and the graphs don't look good does not mean that it won't sound good, but what does he know?

    I've seen many frequency response graphs thatlook like crap, but sound good. You never know until you try it.

    I had an original xtr 15 way back. Ive also had a mofo 12 and it hit lower imo. Get a pair of 12s and save some space maybe? Just a thought



    Bought from: jes42, cerwinvegafan, spooney
    Sold to: ssteele18, BKNIGHTS
    Traded with: jfroghobo, spooney

    The thing with power accoustik, they are not known to last long. They look beefy but really, they aren't built too tough and are often overrated. Although their older version of the MOFOs are built like tanks, newer generations, not so much. Dont regret the return, and dont reorder it. Just chill and do some research first. Hasty choices makes for an empty wallet and unsatisfied heart.
