    Alright, this is how subwoofers USUALY work. Twelves, don't get very loud, but can deliver ultra clear notes. Fifteens get loud, and deliver notes that are sort of clean, but not completlyl. Meanwhile 18s are usualy very loud, but very noisy, which causes them to be very unclean.
    18s cost a lot, but they are ideal for people, who like loud spekaers, and don't care, about cleanliness. So just keep this in mind, when buying subwoofer speakers.

    Excuse me, sir or ma'am.

    what do you mean, by blah? I am delivering USUAL facts. Now I know, that the Image Dynamics 12 handles 1,000 RMS. 12w7 handles 750 RMS. 13w7, handles 1,000 RMS. Kicker solo x 18, handles 5,000 RMS, and is one of very few clean 18s. Kikcer l7 15 handles 1,000 rms.

    So before you blab, like that again, don't insult the expert
    'Cause I know my stuff, when it comes to stereo, old one. And by the way "I sense a disturbance in the InterNet. . ."

    brad.farmer

    ps, any question? Or are you too petrified?!

    (Car)IDMAX: 1,000 RMS (Cleaner than clean)
    (Car)Kappa Perfect 12.1: 350 RMS (Clean)
    (Car)Rockford Fosgate HX2 12: 500 RMS (DIRTY, ROTTEN, NOISY)
    (Car)Kicker l7 12: 500 RMS (Middle-Class)

    13's:
    13w7: 1,000 RMS (Cleaner than Clean)

    15's:
    (Home) SM 150+: 500 RMS (Cleaner than Clean)
    (Car) Kicker L7 15: 1,000 RMS (Middle-Class)
    (Car) Rockford Fostgate HX2 15: 1,000 RMS (DIRTY, NOISY)
    (Car) Audiobauhn Flame Q: 1,300 RMS (DIRTY, NOISY, WORHTLESS)

    18's:
    (Car) Kicker Solo X 18: 5,000 Watts RMS (10,000 Watts Peak) (Clean, Clean, Clean, and Clean)
    (Car) Jl Audio 18w3: 450 RMS (Clean, but not completly loud)

    none of those are offbrands. every post you've made that i have seen has been completley wrong!! 18 cant sound good? i guess thats why most of the elite home stereos have them cus they sound so bad. you can make a 10 louder than a 18 and a 18 sound better then a 10. its how you use it

    you seem to have misplaced the Brahma 15.. oh wait, it isn't on there, so i'll rate it for you.. (Too good for you). And, the solo-x will sound like butthole in any enclosure made by the average joe. And L7's are dirty as hell. As far as i know, the XXX will perform very well in SQ, those come 10-18, and i bet the 18 could sound just as good as the others.
