    Out of loop for year

    I went to college for a year and havent really been up to date w/ whats new, good, old, and what not. Last time I was here, everyone had a huge RE boner & was bashing ED, dont know if thats still goin on.
    Anyway, I currently have 2 Polk GNX 10's sealed in my Explorer, and am looking for something a bit louder. My system will be complete once I get a new sub. Wondering whats good out there. I have 600 watts to work w/, and my price range is 200$ MAX, for a 12" sub. I listen to a lot of rock/rap ranging from Coldplay, Tool, or 2Pac. My subs were sealed, and although they sounded good, Im still debating between ported or sealed.
    Personally, I really cant tell a difference between higher end subs. To me, JL sounds great, but its nothin special. To tell you the truth, the bass sounds a little too tight, short, and a bit too aggressive. Maybe I like relaxed subs better, I dont really know. I just want something that blends real well in my car, if it helps I have CDT CL-61's with 100 watts to each speaker. Its hard to describe what I want, maybe u guys can help me out. I can only tell a slight difference when comparing to Alpine, Polk, Infinity... I mean, Im not gonna throw some Pyle subs in there and be happy, but I dont need somethin really pricey, and would rather spend that extra money for a little more spl. There is a certain point for me where sq isnt that noticeable. Im a poor student and need to start saving money before school starts for food/beer/alcohol.
    Heard MB Quart was going out of business, and found this http://www.crutchfield.com/S-8gN5YI...isplay=MB+Quart

    Also saw this, but dont know much about Diamond Audio and Im looking for a 12 inch

    Was looking into the 13 Ov2 and I dont wanna hear people ***** about ED, how much Ben *****, and complain about them for no legitimate reasons unless its related to the actual sound of the driver.

    I dont know if the above subs are a good fit for my situation or maybe I should get a sub that is geared more towards loudness.

    Open for suggestions and would really like to hear from you guys... I really appreciate it. Thanks

    Tony

    everyone had a huge RE boner & was bashing ED,
    Basically, it's the same. RE is still the forum boner but what's changed is that mostly the only people bashing eD are the ones that have the right to bash them. The "hangers-on" have moved to other bandwagons.

    To me, JL sounds great, but its nothin special. To tell you the truth, the bass sounds a little too tight, short, and a bit too aggressive. Maybe I like relaxed subs better, I dont really know.
    That sounds like an enclosure problem, not the sub...

    Here are some of the latest forum poster-children:

    Any help for my question regarding subs? Thanks

    BTW: this is multiple JL setups. I mean I've heard at least a double digit amount of cars w/ JL subs. I do like the XR Components, but the price is not close to what they're actually worth

    From you description of what your looking for, I'd recommend going ported tuned low. (Around 30-32hz).

    For less than $200, I'd look into a Soundsplinter RL-i 12 or an RE SE 12.

    later...

    Lol nothings changed, But with the power you have I would say go with a 12 or 15 L7/L5, I dont know if that is more of what you want or not but im only sending ~400 watts to each of my L7s, they sound great, and get loud... But then again I cant really tell with the SQ because they are in the trunk, where your truck you would be able to tell more, idk dont listen to me lol

    Given your desire for a "relaxed" sub, Nukedsodapop's idea of a Kicker L7/L5 might be right up your alley.

    MB Quart isn't going out of business, rockford bought them. And now rockford will be producing mb quart products, which ***** IMO.
