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
