    Re: sx???

    Lemans, you know the story by now. Someone pitted an SX against the ever-so-loved Alpine Type R, the Type R posted an insignificantly higher number that wouldn't effect a daily driver in any way, now everyone thinks the SX is some mediocre half sub and not the little brother to the XXX like it really is.

    After that certain people think "Gee, I have SXs already on the way! Defying all logic and the incredible number of good reviews - I will mentally list them in the ****** category of subwoofers!!". Not expecting much, they don't put the effort to do a decent install, so the SX ends up sounding like ****, and they post shady reviews.

    Watch it happen again with the next forum boner against an otherwise loved sub here on ca.com.

    Re: sx???

    The SX lacks in the SQ but is pretty good in SPL.

    As ^^ he posted, peeps just put it up against numbers and then call it crappy if it does not exceed.
    Because......c'mon now......RE is god. Why shouldn't it exceed all others?

    Re: sx???

    I'd take an SX over a type R for my car in the right box it does what it has too. cause one guy got high numbers with a type R in a car doesnt mean they will hit that number in any other car. SX has proved its numbers in multiple cars.

    Re: sx???

    as owner of 2 re sx..i am dissapointed...the sq lacks more than i thought it would and i tryed to build a box tuned low and its even worse....they dont seem to sound any better and they lack hitting the lows like i want......im gunna try a ava. but thats because i want a tru SQL sub no a 7/10 spl sub lik the sx......i havnt had them in ne thing above 35 herts but i bet they can put some good numbers up....



    Current system:
    03 Ford Explorer
    iraggi 300amp alt (on its way)
    Red top under hood and deka 9a31 in back ( on its way)
    stock mids and highs
    Pioneer Z110bt headunit
    1 18'' TC9/Audioque In 6cubes tuned to 32hz
    Audioque 3500D
    Handles the lows just fine

    Re: sx???

    I'm likin my SX quite a bit also, I just think that I may go with some avalanches sealed off sometime in the future because I underestimated how much I really need SQ with metal. The SX does lack somewhat in SQ but I still like it (does get nice and loud though ). Box is tuned to 32 hz @ 4cuft internal btw.

    Louder. Supposedly hits the lows better, dunno for sure though because I havent tried it in a 3.5 cube box.

    Re: sx???
