    dc 2k if i remember correctly are not built in the us mmats may be one of your few choices on this

    and the dc subs like most us built subs stlll use Chinese parts and motors.

    atleast if you buy fi you will get american made motors

    Fi Q Series Sub Woofers | Fi Q Subwoofer
    hits lower

    Fi BL Series Sub Woofers | Fi BL Subwoofer
    higher spl
