    2 e12kd4 or 10" Brahma

    Which would be better for my JBL 1200.1? I know the Brahma is a ****** but would the two e12kd4's be just as good and save me $100?

    You think the K's sound better than the Brahma? That's the first time I've ever heard that.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    from 130-ish DB and below, the brahma wins. over that..the k's take over, but only in a small margin.
    at high volumes, the brahma would have a harder time to keep up in SPL. while that, the K's will have more cone area so they can play as loud without stressing themselves out.

    I don't agree with your thought process.
    How often do you drive around listening to 130db+ music?

    *slaps his head*

    Who let Mark out without medicating him?! Now we're in for it! lol.
    I'm with Mark on this one tho... the only reason I could possibly see the K's being even considered better is teh superior low-end response of teh dual 12's...
    not in overall sound quality mind you, but in that aspect alone...

    Well I'm intelligent enough to value my hearing. In 10 years my ears will be fine. If you drive around listening to 130+ constantly, your ears won't be.

    i don't drive around (i can't anyways) but my school is only 5 minutes away so 130db for 5 minutes isn't much. listening to anything at moderate level will be just as dangerous in the long run.

    listening to thing moderately is damaging? 130db for 5 minutes a day over 4 years is no good.

    So we extrapolate for 130db and get in the area of less than 2 minutes.

    but we must remember that some peoples ear are more sensitive than others and 130db of 3000hz is way different than 130db of 30hz. i on the other hand, have bad hearing (family trait) so its not as bad as you think it is (for me anyways)
