    RL-P15 vs. Current Set Up

    I am getting bored with my current subs, and I was thinking of a single 15" sub for the next install. I am very happy with my current amp, so I plan on keeping it.. I want to spend $300 MAX shipped on a sub, would the RL-P15 fit my needs? What are the alternatives....?

    Oh, and by the way, I am looking for something that will be louder than the HX2's, and I have around 4.5 cubes MAX for a box.

    Well, you'll most likely lose output...

    Re: RL-P15 vs. Current Set Up

    Also, I need something that comes in dual 2 VC config, so I can run my amp at 1 ohm. Unless the sub only needs around 600w RMS to run like a beast...

    Suggestions fellas..........

    Do you want something louder, or something that sounds better?

    Not that its not loud enough, I just get kind of bored with things after a bit. So I wanted to switch it up, and since I have already been through three seperate installs involving two 12's, I was thinking one 15. I would like dual 15's, but I just dont have the room to run them ported like I want. How about a 15XXX, would 1200w RMS be good to push that?

    BTW, the HX2's are the Punch series, not Power.

    I am pretty happy with how the HX2's sound, as I said I am not SQ oriented at all. I just want something different, louder would be good, but if something is AS loud as these I would be happy. I just do not want to lose SPL.

    Re: RL-P15 vs. Current Set Up

    Okay guys, how about a Mmats Dreadnaut? Someone is willing to trade my HX2's for one of THESE

    I have seen the Juggernauts in action, and they are monsters. How do you guys think this will compare to my HX2's SPL and SQ wise? I have 1200w RMS to feed it, so it wont be a problem to power it, seeing as how it is 1000w RMS. Good or bad decision to trade?

    Well, they sell it online from $450 on up, and I paid $180 shipped for my HX2's, think I should give it a shot? Anyone ever used one of these things?
