    RE or FI, who to pick

    In your opinion, all in all, who do you think is better, costs aside. I am looking at both the BL and the SX 15's. Positive point, RE dealer is 10 minutes from my home. As I stated, what do you think about these two and who I should go with.....
    ORRRR 4 SX's or 2 BTL's???

    Cost not being an issue...I would choose RE, whatever my subwoofer needs may be. I'd go SX over BL any day

    Do you have room for 4 15's?

    Blowthrough or walk through?

    Blow through, don't like the look of those huge camper shells on the truck. I am only gonna put a fiberglass lid on the bed of the truck. Can get a pretty large hole with a boot between them. Gonna second skin around this.

    Re: RE or FI, who to pick

    So, thankfully, after much thought, I actually got to hear some RE subs in action. It was only one 12" SX, but I am hooked. It was pretty nice I must say. This was not my first encounger with RE, but the first I really don't count as to the fact the subs were 3 18's and were for pure SPL. I couldn't base my decision off of that.
    Thanks all!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You should really hear a BL if you thought the SX was ******.

    Re: RE or FI, who to pick

    I would think they are both good subs. Never used a BTL, but have used the SX and the MT.

    Seems like to compare (4) 15's to only (2) 15's, we will need to know how much power you will run to each setup, what your goal is (music/SPL/both), how big the enclosure can be. . . .

    2000 Suburban - (4) BTL 15's and (4) IA 40.1's = 157.7 dB at 37 Hz.
    1992 Astro Van - (6) BTL 15's and (6) IA 40.1's = 159.7 dB at 43 Hz.

    no system right now. . .

    most of you guys saying the sx's will beat the bl's have obviously never heard both. Yes the sx"s are great subs i liked them a lot but there was just no comparison to them and the bl
