    Mach 5 IXL 15

    What sort of thermal power handling is the IXL voice coil capable of? I'm looking at a single 15, but it only comes in DVC2, and my opti does over 1600w @ 1 ohm.

    If I run it at 4 ohms it'll only be getting ~600w.

    I mean, if you turn down your gains, it won't matter... Just be responsible.

    I was conservative with the ratings. It should handle ~1200 watts with little issue..



    I'm right. I'm always right. Even when I'm wrong, I'm right.

    Now which would you rather have. Two MAW-15's or one IXL-15. They are both 230 shipped. Vehicle is a grand cherokee and both would be ported.

    There is no difficulty powering either setup.

    Edit: The IXL-18 is only $20 more than the 15. Can't decide

    Go with the MAW-15's. They will sweep more air and will result in higher output. Folks have pushed 700+ watts into them and they've taken it.

    more cone area = more output = better

    that statement would be correct in comparing MAW-12's to MAW-15's, however I don't know how the IXL compares to the MAW's.

    One IXL will not equal two MAW's for swept air.

    1 IXL-15 = 3 litres p-p
    2 MAW-15 = 4 litres p-p

    Best,
    Mark
