    RD Audio Elite SPL Review

    Almost 2 weeks ago I received the 15" RD Audio Elite SPL thanks to Steve at Rd Audio and Low-hz.com for this opportunity. At first looks I was really impressed with the subwoofer and packaging. No worries there. This is the 5th largest subwoofer in the RD Audio lineup of 8 surpassed by the Alpha, Heavyweight, and Super heavyweight.

    Compared to a DD 3515.

    I started out with 2.5 cu. ft. box after displacement and 2 4" external aeroports tuned to about 60 hz. Powering this setup was 1 PA 3000db at 1 ohm.

    On the TL with a little tweaking I was able to get a 145.5 out of this setup. Mind you this is MECA style at the head.

    Next setup was 3.9 cubes after displacement and 3 4" external aeroports tuned to about 50hz. With the same amount of power.



    With this same box I added another amp to strap 2 PA 3000's at 1 ohm.



    I am very impressed with this subwoofer and its price. I was kind of skeptical at first knowing the voice coil was only 2.5" instead of the typical 3" vc on many spl subs. From the 2 weeks that I listened to the sub (daily and Comp) the sub only got hot once, and that was after about 6 burps full tilt from both amps. I competed at Carl Casper this weekend. On Friday I came in 1st in S2 and also won the Phat 15 award (loudest singe 15) with a 148.9. On Sunday I came in first in S2 with a 148.7.



    Once again thanks to RD Audio and Low-hz.com for giving me the opportunity to test this amazing sub.

    That's an amazing sub for sure. I'm itching to do a swapout with my HD3.

    They're $250, and that price might be more or less - but if you're interested you can email Kevin at Low-hz ([email protected]) or Ben at [email protected] for specific additional information. Http://www.low-hz.com is the site as well.

    Carl Casper was a fun event, even though I didnt compete this time myself. I was really suprised at the amout of people who came over to check out the RD sub....but you know how bassheads are, they wanna see the newest toy's out

    Perhaps they are following MAP guidelines. I am sure if you contacted them you would get a much better price.
