    Icon32 RE SX Or Rockford fosgate power T2

    hey

    which sub out of the RE SX and the rockford fosgate T2 is better for SQ but more towards SPL, whihc will run best with a directed 1500d whihc has 1100watt rms at 1 ohm.

    also is it advisable to upgrade to a hifonics 1606d to get more output from the sub of choice

    thanks for the help

    I would personally take the RE SX. I just dont like RF's new stuff. now, If this was a power HX2, this would be a different story.......

    RE SX18 if you have the room(you didnt specify what size). I have run SXs daily with 2kw and never had any problems. They will get hella loud and they sound pretty good to boot.

    Re: RE SX Or Rockford fosgate power T2

    im thinking of getiing a 15" SX then but will it be fine with a directed 1500d for a small amount of time as i need to get the money together to buy a hifonics 1606d so im gona hav to run the SX on my directed amp for around a week

    also where can i get plans to build a ported box as the RE inernet site is confusing and i cant make sense of thier box builder as i am a newbie to building your own boxes and having them ported and how are u suposed to tune a box

    I think the cheapest is onlinecarstereo at $449...and I am pretty sure the SX is cheaper.

    I dont know about shipping but you should be able get the SX for 375 easy . AS far as a amp I would recommend a Autotek MM1400.1 We have had really good results out of that combo.

    Re: RE SX Or Rockford fosgate power T2

    I have a biased opinion but the T2 woofer gets REALLY LOUD while maintaining undistorted bass.

    People run well over a 1000watts daily to these subs and they take the pain all day.

    To be honest I don' t have a lot of experience with the SX, however I have seen/heard T2 woofers day in and day out - That sub is reliable, strong, beefy lookin' and puts out the power you need. It performs well in a sealed enclosure as well as a ported box.

    Overall a great woofer.

    Best of luck with which one you choose!

    Re: RE SX Or Rockford fosgate power T2

    I personally have a 15" SX and absolutely love it. Im running about 2kw daily on it and it takes the beating. The amp I'm using is an American Bass 100.1 and its at 1 ohm, the box is around 2.5 @ 28Hz i think, I also use a different box for competitions, 3.6 @ 48 Hz

    It get's incredibly loud, but still sounds good

    Re: RE SX Or Rockford fosgate power T2

    would that amp give it all the power it can take and so i would be able to run it without any problems, are there any other amps whihc will be very good for a SX.

    also what size is best to get out of the 12" and 15" and whihc size will be best for SQ but more geared towards SPL

    i currently have a kicker L7 15" and i dont realy like the bass its kinda muddy this may be because of the crappy box im running it

    so what size is best to have the SX in

    ^^ Well try building the correct box, before spending your money on another sub...
