    Dd Mt?

    sorry just planning already for the next system and i cant decide if i was to go with one 12" xxx or one 12" mt in 4 cu ft box. possibly 2, but i was just wondering if the mt's would be decent for a dd?

    You can run MT's daily, but why would you? Sure they'll get a 1-1.5db higher score on a meter, but the XXX will sound better 100% of the time, which I consider MUCH more important for a DD than an extra db at the top end. Unless you listen to your stereo at absolute 100% full volume all the time, the output differences wont even be noticed but the SQ differences will be noticeable between the two subs all the time.

    Everyone wants the biggest baddest woofer, even if its not the best choice for their situation. Even in today's world of some awesome SQL woofers, people still want more output for a daily. I dont get that reasoning.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    Re: Dd Mt?

    Actually they might not gain^^^

    They are not the best subs for street applicatoins. SXs have tested higher in street setups. I say get the xxx or a dd 3512



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    Re: Dd Mt?

    Last test I saw from RE showed the MT having the highest efficiency/output of all their subs (including the SX)... in a burping situation. But of course, how each setup would perform would depend on the install. And we aren't necessarily talking about a burp system, we are talking about a DD where the XXX's displacement potential will give it more output than the SX along the entire freq band. I used the 1-1.5db higher number to reflect the efficiency differences the RE test showed between the xxx and MT (to assume they would be in similar installs).
