    4 infnity reference 12's sealed VS. SI Mag 12 Ported?

    Like the title says im deciding between 4 infnity refernce 12's which i can get new for 200 or a single SI mag 12 for 450. For the money saved over the Mag i can get a new 4 channel infinity amp putting out 111rmsx4 at 4ohm but im just wondering which would sound better, 4ref 12's sealed or a SI mag ported?

    Thats an assanine statement...

    He obviously doesnt have room for them if he wants to put them in a sealed enclosure. I would take single mag ported, properly powered, over four shoddy-*** Infinitys...

    Having listened to both, I'd rather have the mag.

    I had 2 12inch ref's, and they kicked. But when I wired them to a 750w rms amp they blew.. so.... I got 2 12inch kappas and loved them for the time I had them. LOVED them. I recommend them. They're not the loudest sub out there, but the quality of them are AWESOME!

    of course the mags will rape the infinity. but this is not even a comparison. he's talking 4 12s here. wont the 4 12s get really low now?

    Re: 4 infnity reference 12's sealed VS. SI Mag 12 Ported?

    The extra surface area will help the Infiniti's delve a little lower than it would with just one Infiniti driver due to the coupling affect. If he's after pure low end extension with total disregard towards musical fidelity there are other alternatives besides four Infiniti drivers (like 4-8 Dayton Titanics ported, etc.) If he's looking forward to playing music through his subwoofers a Mag is hard to beat. ...just keep your eyes peeled for the test results of the Great 12" Challenge.
