    Ed O12 vs. RE SE 12 vs Adire Shiva 12

    I've been checking out these subs and it looks like these are the three big companies that are quality and very unknown. Seems like the Ed 012, RE SE 12, and the Adire Shiva 12 are the three competitors for the $150 range. Just to get a little more info. on the companies whats your thoughts on which sub is better?

    In SPL, the SE will take it easy, though it will not have the SQ of either the Shiva or the O. The O is not out yet, but Ben said it's pretty much a pure SQ driver.

    Yes. The SE's are more SPL oriented, but still sound good. The Shiva's are mainly SQ subs, but can still get pretty loud.

    i'll prob go for hte SE or Shiva, what aobut the RC HC? it might be less than $200 if u ask them for direct price.

    I like eD, but their expected shipping dates are horrendous, bad experiencec with that. SO if you want you sub pretty soon, go for Shiva or SE. If not, then the Os would be a good choice

    basically what everyone else said,

    shiva- cheaper, runs less wattage, SQ orientated

    SE- little more expensive, handles more wattage, SPL (w/ good SQ) orientated

    ED O- ??? I have had their products, and they are a very good company, so i'm guessing it will be a nice sub. You have to wait though..

    I wanna hook up a ported system, I got a ported box and everything but I'm afraid I might blow the subs. I have no idea what to do with this sub sonic filter crap. Is it worth the trouble of getting filters and stuff? I listen to pretty heavy bass and like it loud.

    a subsonic filter may be bought seperately or the amp may have it. the JBL 1200.1 doesn't have the SSF, so you either buy a new amp with a SSF or seal the box, or buy an external SSF (<---last thing i'll do).


    its not necessary to run a SSF, but if your a bass head and like to crank up the volume, i'd say you need one. without a SSF, expect about 25% reduction in mechanical power handling.

    if you're thinking of FMOD's..then i would suggest to stay away from them, unless you wanna buy couple of pairs. they were tested before by richard clark and the octave slope was less than the claimed "12db". anything less than 12db is worthless..u either have it or you don't have it. no in betweens... (at least the way i see it)
