    SQ all the way

    I am searching for my future sub and i thought i'd ask for some opinions. Im tired of hearing systems that are just loud and noisy and sound like ****. I am wanting a system that sounds HELLA good without sacrificing SP. I am looking in the $500 range. I have a hifonic 2000 watt amp to power it but will eventually upgrade that too.

    Re: SQ all the way

    "SQL" is probably the term you're referring too.


    Many subs get loud and sound good while doing it. Fi Q's, much of the RE line, etc.



    Subs: 2 RE Audio SE 12's
    Amp: MTX TA7801 @ 1 ohm
    HU: Alpine CDA-9884
    Fronts: Digital Designs DDCX 6x9's
    Rears: Kenwood KFC-C1739's
    Dash Tweets: 1/2'' Kicker KS13s
    Vehicle: Silver 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    Re: SQ all the way

    Your system will only be as good as it's weakest link. SQ starts from the HU back. I don't think that foreign made HiFonics 2000 whatever screams SQ more like poo poo.



    1995 Oriental Blue BMW 525i 5 Speed
    Stock Alpine System Actively Crossed Over & Amped w/CD 6-Disc Changer System with a/d/s 235is comps in front (3-Ways front, 2-Ways rear) sounds really good. All functions are displayed on the dash's check control display module.

    Doing sub duty, I highly doubt it. If you set the gains accordingly to where you're not clipping the shit out of the signal, then you really aren't going to notice any difference. Just think about how much more distortion your sub causes than your amp does...

    Re: SQ all the way

    There is no such thing as "SQL" in the audio world.

    To the original poster, just about any sub will be pretty workable. If you have 2kW on tap, you're probably best off getting a pair of good drivers. How much room do you have to work with?

    Nga, you so crazy. SQL is where the subs are loud but your license plate does not rattle. You can put mat on your plate or you can take that bish off.

    Re: SQ all the way

    Yea i have been looking at FI and RE alot lately....I did not know the XXX was for SQ. I was especially looking at the BTL. Is it safe to say this is not and SPL sub?

    The BTL is definitely an SPL sub...the XXX is a great mix of SQ and SPL. You can get the older models for a fair price in the classfieds section. I know someone has been selling an 18"er on here...

    Re: SQ all the way

    also when reading the FI website the BL looks like it has the sq of the Q but gets louder...."SPL" . would the BL be more ideal? (i had two type R's before....need to be louder/better than those)
