    I have no experience with either, but from what I have read the Mag is on a different level then the Q. I say Mag.

    Re: Help Down to Two Choices

    is there a budget? can you get them both for the same price? if so, i'd go w/ the Mag. I'm sure that you can get the Q for cheaper, so i'd go with the Fi Q if money was an issue.

    Run the Mag. It's a beast, and compared to the Q (not considering price, like has been said) it is a stronger woofer.

    I can't speak as to the Q --- but the Mag certainly is a great sub.

    Re: Help Down to Two Choices

    Both are in the same category/ level in built quality and power handling. The Mag is little more efficient but, the fi q can be used in smaller boxes. Different sounds from each other, not better or worse, just depends on what you like, both have won sq competitions. The mag has $180 price difference over the Q. Hard choice between the two unless you listened to both and liked one sound better than the other.

    Re: Help Down to Two Choices

    Ive heard both, I personally would go with a mag. Q is a budget mag, it sounds a bit sloppier, not bad just in comparison to the mag. but in my testing it was .2 db louder than the mag.

    cant go wrong with either

    Re: Help Down to Two Choices

    Have both, not a budget mag if they sound different and both companies uses parts in same quality. Why pay 180 more for a chrome motor.

    Re: Help Down to Two Choices

    How 'bout one more choice, lol. Sell you my 12" D2 TC9 Hybrid for $250 shipped.

    But out of the choices listed, I agree with pretty much everyone else in the thread. Mag if you have the cash, but you won't be disappointed with the Q either.
