    12'' Adire Brahma MK II

    Item(s) for Sale:

    12 inch Adire Audio Brahma MKII



    Item(s) Description/Condition:

    Cosmetically Id rate it about a 7 out of 10. I keep most of my items prestine, but the gentleman I bought this speaker from did not. It has your typical scuffs and light stratches. Performance id have to say its a 10 out of 10. Sounds great, very musical and can get rather loud for daily driving. I had this in roughly a 2.0 cubic foot ported box tuned to 32-33 hz. If your wanting SQ, this is an impressive setup. Anton Miller formally from TML (Team Minnesota's loudest) built the box for me, and Chris Russ (founder of TML) gave me a hand doing the install. If I remember right, RMS on these were 1600w and 2400 peak.
    Price:

    Ill go $300 shipped on this.


    Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information:

    Id love to hang on to this peice, but its winter time and I have other projects that need attention. I may be getting out of the audio side of things for while so I wont be able to take any trades. Sorry folks. These are the only pictures I can find on my PC right now, I will have more detailed pictures this afternoon.

    I also used to own a 15'' xxx, I believe the motors are different. Back in 04-05 if you were looking at top notch SQL subs chances are you were considering a Brahma or XXX. If you do your research on here, a guy can find more then enough good information on Adire Audio.

    How would you compare this to your W7 for the following: SPL, SQ, and output below 25hz?
    Would love to hear the same comparison between this and a XXX for those who have owned both as well.

    No.

    Brahma = xbl2 RE HC, BA Inhuman, concept, blah blah

    The mk2 had beveled plates and went to the 12 spoke basket...still doesn't look like an xxx though.

    Brahma extreme = non xbl2 RE xxx

    Adire Tumult = RE xxx

    ..and lol @ adire cloning RE. Was the other way around.

    Re: 12'' Adire Brahma MK II

    This is one of my favorite subs I've ever owned. Does it have the original inverted dust cap with the brahma bull on it? I have been looking for another one of these for quite awhile now. I really wanted a 15" but I make pick this up too. Anyway I could get you to send me a few more pics? Any chips or cracks in the motor slugs? Thanks!

    The W7 I cant compare because it was a 10'' and not in the ample enclosure. That being said, the brahma knocks it out of the park on all levels. The XXX was the first speaker I ever bought and that was back in 03-04 I was young and frankly had no idea what I got myself into. Trunk space issues mainly, which resulted in the XXX being starved for air.

    Coils look fine.

    The sub is in pretty fair condition considering. I rated it a 7 cause im somewhat picky and want to be as straight forward as I can. I dont think anyone will be disappointed in the shape its in. BTW I used to push my XXX with a 1501bd.. great minds think alike.

    Item(s) Description/Condition:

    Cosmetically Id rate it about a 7 out of 10. I keep most of my items prestine, but the gentleman I bought this speaker from did not. It has your typical scuffs and light stratches. Performance id have to say its a 10 out of 10. Sounds great, very musical and can get rather loud for daily driving. I had this in roughly a 2.0 cubic foot ported box tuned to 32-33 hz. If your wanting SQ, this is an impressive setup. Anton Miller formally from TML (Team Minnesota's loudest) built the box for me, and Chris Russ (founder of TML) gave me a hand doing the install. If I remember right, RMS on these were 1600w and 2400 peak.
    Price:

    Ill go $300 shipped on this.


    Shipping and Miscellaneous Item Information:

    Id love to hang on to this peice, but its winter time and I have other projects that need attention. I may be getting out of the audio side of things for while so I wont be able to take any trades. Sorry folks. These are the only pictures I can find on my PC right now, I will have more detailed pictures this afternoon.

    1600 rms was a thermal rating actual is 500-750 if i recall
