    help me decide:2 idmax 12"or 1 tc-5200 15"

    BOTH SEALED.....ok now that that turns alot of people off. I currently run 1 idmax 12"(for sale) sealed getting 1000rms. love the sound, want more output. so have 2 of them i was thinking.however, I like the sound of it in a larger sealed,cant fit 2. So I was thinking 1 tc-5200 15 in a 2 cube sealed. I know nobody has heard a tc-5200, but looking for some viewpoints.



    2 IDmaxes-$700 shipped

    1 tc-5200 15" $825 shipped


    tc box fits, im sure both setups would sound great, and loud, so is this definitaly the case of "cone area FTW?"

    1000 rms-kinda low for the tc, but it has a high efficiency

    You love the single IDmax with 1000w, but dont have room for a second in an equally sized enclosure; but do you plan to add another 1000w or more if you get a second IDmax? If so, I vote the IDmax's.

    If you plan to simply divide the power between the two, then I would go for the single 5200.

    both subs are highly efficient, so i figured 500 to each idmax would be enough, I just dont really want them in smaller boxes

    I wouldn't get the TC and only send it 1000w. I've heard that the 3000's need more than 1000w to perform to their potential.

    wow you went through so many subs already. I remember you had a RL-p too. Whichever you pick I hope it will work out for you. Maybe you should just get a SI Mag, but you might not have enough room huh.

    Go with IDmaxes of course. Just give each of them at least 1.5 cubes sealed and they should sound great w/ 500watts.

    I would never seal a 5200. Hell, I would never run a 5200 period...

    Idmax all the way.

    IDMax, it sounds better at 1.3+ sealed each tho, if u can find a way to squeeze out that much space.
