    Which soundplitter sub would you recommend for me?

    Hey all, I'm trying to get my set-up together, now I'm looking at subs.

    I've heard some good things about both these products and I would appreciate any input on which one would be more suited to what I want. The subs of interest are the rl-i 8 and the rlp-12. I'm looking for great sound quality sub that has some kick to it, but I don't want some crazy *** sub that rattles and shakes everything.

    What one would you choose and why? And if not one of these, what other one?
    And getting one 8-inch or a 12-inch sub isn't a bad thing is it? Reason being, I have a mustang and I would like at least some room in the back.

    One more thing. If I get somethig like this, I wouldn't have to upgrade my electrical, would I? So far what I have is a JVC KD-AR5500 reciever, and I'm strongly considering a pair of 6.5 DLS Iridum comps.


    Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    I would recommend the RL-i 8" for you, ported. Should give you the "kick" you're looking for, and only require a very reasonable amp, one that wouldn't need an upgraded alternator. You'd just need to upgrade your battery ground.

    Do you want a ported or sealed setup?

    i would normally say rlp...but you said you just want a 'little' kick in the nutz.
    so go with the rl-i8.

    What's the difference? Sorry, I'm still new.


    And I hear that L7's are pretty decent. Do they stand up to these subs?

    Ported can have SQ you terds. Stop going off of hear say and build yourself a "good" box...

    What are you looking for? What kind of space do you have to work with? What power are you going to be using?

    Wow, I just started a thread because I am trying to choose between the same 2 also. I have a Mustang as well. I was actually considering 2 8s because of the wow factor. But the RL-p is hard to beat for the money... For you I would say the 8 because you don't want everything shaking. The only problem I have with the 2 8s is they will cost more than the 1 12.
