    What? I don't think so.

    What about a Stryke Audio AV12/15?

    Or Soundsplinter RL-i/p?

    Dayton Titanic?

    Lots of good choices out there.

    Re: home sub

    are the power requirements the same if you take a car sub and put it in your house. I always heard AC was a lil stronger

    Re: home sub

    I meant that you don't need a kilowatt for a Type R. That's simply wrong to say you need that much power...

    Room gain is less than the gain you get in a car, so you might need more power/subs to get the same kind of output levels you're used to in a vehicle.

    But then again, dynamic range is a whole lot more - you don't have to overcome road/wind noise. So you might be able to get away with less power than you're used to.
