    Re: Question about Sundown audio.

    Just FYI to those that say a 100.4 can't run a sub, well you're wrong......I've built several installs for customers with only a 100.4 running 3way with a single SA series sub that sounded great and pounded as well.....everyone is not looking for earth shaking ear splitting bass in every frigging install that's asked about on these forums.....



    Just when they though it couldn't get any worse, in came the Lord of Kaos, the Darkhart has arisen from his century long slumber..

    Re: Question about Sundown audio.

    3K you have some good options. I'm a huge fan of the Zed Audio Leviathan 6 channel amp. You can run some good components (poke around Madisound for some high end mids and tweeters) actively crossed over off of 4 channels and strap the other 2 channels for sub duty... sounds great and is very efficient.

    Any head unit worth the SQ title will have time alignment and the ability to run active crossover. You may also consider a digital processor of some sort (JBL MS-8, Audison Bit1, etc.)

    For true SQ you should be looking for JBL GTi MkII, TC sounds / Audiopulse (Including old TC built Eclipse), Focal, Morel, Aura Sound, or some old Adire Audio.

    Never heard Sundown, imagine they must be good since so many people here use them, but with 3 grand I wouldnt be barking up that tree.
    If OP is after true sq setup he should look into those brands. I think most people just think they want sq and really mean bass that sounds good and isnt boomy/sloppy

    Actually, I do believe that JL dub3, dub6, and dub7 are good for their purposes.
    What I know, tho, is that I've heard very few people put the ones you named up in the top tiers of SQ-dom, especially for someone with a $3k budget who can afford a wholelotfukkinbettah. If you think DD = SQ , then I question if you've any clue what SQ consists of.

    I'd def take a W6 before anything in those lines, every day of the week, and twice on Sundays...

    Re: Question about Sundown audio.

    what kind of set up would you run?, if you had budget of three grand. I really like the xcon's might go through with 2 15's. Could you recommend and amp?

    i skipped ahead of all the other posts.. but for true SQ, look into PPI, HERTZ, FOCAL, try finding some McIntosh and older MB quart gear,
    Arc audio, Diamond audio, and ID.
    IMO, the Icon is more SQL than SQ.
